“To stay competitive in our industry, our leaders need to understand market requirements, the challenges we face, and the importance of synergy and vertical integration with other business areas and/or industries.
By strengthening the links between the wine, restaurant and hotel industries, the Master of Science in Wine & Hospitality Management meets this need to train our expert, strategically-thinking leaders, so that they may understand these challenges and find innovative, holistic solutions for overcoming them.
I believe that, with this program, students will be able to gain strategic knowledge of the Wine & Hospitality business that they won’t find anywhere else”.
