In addition students will also review the regulatory aspects of international trade, the management of contracts, financial issues, corporate social responsibility and how to work in a cross cultural environment.
Wine and Spirits (in Bordeaux)
Wine is certainly a current media object. It means history and terroir, culture and Epicurus. The economics of the wine are growing (267 million bottles sold with a turnover of nearly 107 billion US$). In France, the wine is the second largest sector of exports behind aeronautics. These figures also weighed in terms of jobs (300 000 jobs), all difficult to relocate. Today, wine sector represents a real laboratory of globalization. The rise of the emerging countries on this market (Argentina, USA, South-Africa, Chili, China, Hungary, Bulgaria, etc.), both in terms of production and consumption, is emblematic of this. More recently, in all greater financial places, wine has become one of the most traded “alternative assets”. Also this sector generates a wide variety of job (merchants, brokers, financial investment advisors, marketers, logisticians, and consulting business…). This stringent academic and professional worldwide training prepares students for this diversity of functions and other job opportunities (agri-food sector and luxury business).
