The cohort-style Executive Wine MBA offers a transformative experience that incorporates integrated leadership development and strategic thinking, equipping students with wine business knowledge and industry-specific tools to become innovators and leaders in today’s competitive global wine market. The program’s foci in strategic decision-making, business intelligence, and communication skills offer students the skillset and confidence to converse and lead on an executive level with all functional areas of a business.
The program exposed me to different business models and made me a better business partner when I am at the table. Our family was in the middle of constructing Hyde Estate Winery and I wasn’t sure about the business plan once the building was completed. The Wine Executive MBA program provided resources - the wine business-focused curriculum and network of fellow students and professors - that helped me explore and develop our new winery into the successful business it is today.
