Still deciding on your college major or thinking of going back to school? You can now fulfill your childhood dreams of becoming a pizza GAWD by majoring in pizza. Yes, pizza.
“I want to major in puppies and pizza”

Manchester Metropolitan University is partnering with Pizza Hut to create 1,500 apprenticeships to those that hope to take their pizza obsession to the next level.
The program, which is expected to run over the next five years, will give students hands-on experience both inside the classroom and in the kitchen. Eager students will have the opportunity to learn all about pizza production as well as get experience in financial analysis.
According to Pizza Hut, the program will “equip [candidates] with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant.” If we’re honest, making a dope pizza for your prospective employer would probably guarantee you the job anyways (or we’d like to think so).
Kathryn Austin, director of HR and marketing at Pizza Hut Restaurants, explains, “Over the next few years, we will work hard to provide our apprentices and team members with the best training and development so that we can equip them with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant.”
Fingers crossed this program will make its way overseas into the United States. Imagine field trips to study the art of New York and Chicago-style pizza. Now that’s what we call education.
