Viticulture & Oenology: the science of grapegrowing and winemaking

This masters degree course consists of a curriculum specialising in cool-climate wine production, climate change effects on viticulture, terroir and sparkling wine. It also includes opportunities to visit other wine-producing areas in Europe. The Wine Department staff have considerable international expertise and research experience, and a brand new Wine Research Centre was completed in March 2014. This combination of experienced staff and modern research facilities will enable students to access an outstanding Masters-level education.

Course structure:

The programme aims to enable students to develop a deep and systematic understanding of wine science (oenology) and related disciplines, and then apply this knowledge to make viticultural and oenological decisions in complex circumstances.

Areas of study:

Students will be required to attend a two-week intensive course in vinegrowing and winemaking at the start of the programme.

The first semester comprises of three modules which enable students to gain and apply knowledge and understanding of current research in grapevine physiology, wine chemistry, biochemistry, and microbiology.

The second semester focuses on climate & terroir and sparkling wine. Students wishing to complete with the Post-Graduate Diploma in Viticulture & Oenology may elect to complete a dissertation and end their studies at this point. Students who intend to study for the full Masters degree will normally take an in-depth research methods module prior to commencing their Masters project.

The third semester is designed to allow students to complete their Masters project, which can be undertaken in the newly opened UK Wine Research Centre, or in another suitable location.

Career and progression opportunities:

This programme enables students to gain advanced skills and knowledge in vinegrowing and winemaking. It therefore prepares them for careers which require the application of a high level of technical knowledge and the exercise of a considerable degree of responsibility. These positions include Vineyard Manager, Viticultural

Consultant, Winemaker and Wine Quality Controller for the wine trade, and will also give the opportunity to continue post-graduate education. Students can also progress towards the achievement of a Doctor in Philosophy (PhD) qualification in related subjects. There is a high demand for these skills, not just in the UK, but also in emerging wine-producing countries who are seeking staff with a truly international approach to the subject and a strong understanding of the requirements of international markets like the UK.

The Erasmus Mundus Master on Wine Tourism Innovation (WINTOUR) offers a truly integrated study programme which combines the expertise in Tourism and Oenology of three universities and regions: Rovira i Virgili University (URV, Spain), University of Bordeaux (UB, France), and University of Porto (UP, Portugal). These universities are located in highly attractive touristic areas, recognised with the label of human heritage by UNESCO, and with a long tradition on wine, producing speciality wines, such as sparkling, fortified, aged red and sweet wines. The training programme is clearly multi-disciplinary and also multisectorial.

The WINTOUR programme is structured in 120 ECTS divided in two years and 4 semesters. The first 3 semesters are taught each in one University (URV, UB and finally UP), and the last semester is devoted to the final internship which is developed in one of the associated partners' facilities, mostly from the non-academic sector. Thus, students have a common track of 90 ECTS, and a final professional Internship for the development of the Master Thesis of 30 ECTS, where students have to develop a project related to the skills acquired.

The teaching programme includes modules on Wine Tourism and Marketing, Wine Making (mostly focused in sparkling, aged, sweet and fortified wines), Wine heritage, and three different types of internships (on winemaking, marketing, and oenotourism), with the active participation of the non-academic partners in the student training.

Student Profile

The WINTOUR programme is aimed at preparing broadly trained and highly adaptable and qualified professionals in the tourism and wine industries in order to promote innovative wine tourism developments which will generate added value through the increased income and recognition of this sector. The programme covers the absence of a new profession that requires multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial knowledge and training, while increasing their understanding of wine making and tourism management. High-quality practical training in entrepreneurship and company management is provided by involving the students in internships in the non-academic sector.

Career Opportunities

Graduates may be eligible for positions in the following areas:
-Private sector: creation of start-ups and business initiatives taking wine as a tourist attraction and tourism as a means for promoting wine and wine regions; management of the international activity of private firms from the wine industry in relation to their marketing strategy and development of wine tourism activities; specialized consultancy in the design and development of new strategies for increasing the competitiveness of the wine sector.
-Public administration: positions in public organizations responsible of the planning, management and promotion of wine tourism products at local, national and international level.
-Research and teaching: participation and leadership of multidiscipliar research teams in the fields of oenology and tourism, either in public or private research organizations.

Luxury is going through a phenomenon much akin to the Big Bang our Universe has experienced billions of years ago. It is in perpetual movement and the core ideas defining its framework are being dismantled one by one. Read more
Luxury is going through a phenomenon much akin to the Big Bang our Universe has experienced billions of years ago. It is in perpetual movement and the core ideas defining its framework are being dismantled one by one. Is it still accurate to equate luxury with rarity when 94% of Japanese Women in their twenties are said to own a Louis Vuitton bag? Should we still assume that Luxury brands invariably utilize a price skimming strategy when Hermes was forced to hold its first ever sale in Hangzhou China in 2014?

The matter at stake here is to understand if the structural changes faced by this prestigious industry push it to morph and explode into various different, and sometimes paradoxical, ideologies; or if those same structural changes are precisely pushing luxury to initiate a retrenchment to its traditional and secular values, back to its original core? This is the initial postulate structuring one of the most sought after postgraduate courses in IFA Paris: The MBA in Luxury Brand Management.

The philosophy of this revamped MBA is based on the same principles as the other postgraduate courses in IFA Paris:

Discovery:
Students are being immersed in a workshop environment allowing them to get an intensive and practical training based on modules that analyze macro and micro trends in depth.

Experimentation:
While travelling between IFA’s campus locations (Paris, Istanbul, Bangkok and Shanghai) our students are able to experience first-hand the intrinsic characteristics of emerging and mature markets thanks to IFA Paris learning by doing pedagogy.

Self-affirmation:
The overarching Capstone thesis reflects the students’ commitment to the development of a unique and individual project.

The MBA in Luxury Brand Management also takes advantage of the unique heritage and bi-cultural affiliation of IFA Paris as it “sits” perfectly at the confluence of a geographical dichotomy:

The East as the catalyst transforming the “Luxe DNA”:
Thanks to IFA Paris unique combination of campus rotation system and synergistic curriculum, participants will be able to choose between 3 metropolises embodying luxury in developing countries:

Shanghai (2 Terms) where students will discover a country that will become the biggest luxury goods market in the world in 2020, and a city where consumers tastes and knowledge are at such a level of sophistication that some analysts consider they have reached a level of maturity faster than expected
Istanbul (2 Terms) where students will be able to analyse how demographic and lifestyle trends changes are driving one of the healthiest and steadiest industry growth in the European Continent
Bangkok (1 Term following rotations in Paris and Shanghai) where students will be able to explore the thriving fashion retail panorama in a city where the most luxurious brands are increasing their presence
The participants’ experience is reinforced by a unique course structure that offers a variety of modules and seminars opening doors into specific sectors of activity such as luxury watch making, cosmetics and perfume, haute couture or even Oenology and Gastronomy.

Finally, from inception to graduation, and regardless of their location, Postgraduate students of IFA Paris will benefit from the support of a unique department called the “Career and Alumni Center”. The industry relation arm of IFA Paris’ academic courses is in charge of organizing bi-weekly guest lectures and field trips to attune our students with the latest trends in the luxury industry.

Capitalizing on strong collaborations with groups such as LVMH, Richemont or Kering, the Career and Alumni Center will give access to exclusive brand launch events, fashion shows, art exhibitions or professional trade-shows in order to build the students’ own professional network.

Our MBA Courses are structured with the ECTS framework in mind as set by the Bologna Convention. Upon completion of their studies participants will gather a total of 120 ECTS that they will be able to transfer if they wish to further their studies. The Course is also accredited by IDEL/IDEART* and is certified as “International Master”.

Course structure
Our Luxury brand Management course covers a wide range of modules clustered into five main module groupings:

Marketing and Management:

This grouping encompasses a series of modules that will be sequentially planned based on the structure of a marketing plan. The overall body of knowledge acquired by the students will prepare them to:

analyse complex marketing challenges based on practical case studies
allocate resources strategically to achieve pre-determined objectives
craft brand DNAs allowing for the achievement of a sustainable competitive advantage

Business Issues:

The capacity to listen and interpret markets’ signals is a key component of today’s managers. It needs to be continuously cultivated. Within this module grouping students will discover the idiosyncrasies of the luxury industry from an economic and financial view point.

Luxury Environment:

The concept of rarity has traditionally been associated to the idea of luxury. However, while rarity is still an important factor in determining the value of a luxury brand, terms such as “exclusivity” or “space” are now strongly resounding within customers’ minds as alternative descriptors. In this module grouping students will study the historical evolution of the luxury industry and will explore macro trends that are structuring the different international markets.

Luxury Lifestyle:

The series of seminars comprised within the “Luxury Lifestyle” module grouping will allow our students to experience diverse industries and give them more specific insights on each of them. Topics such as Haute Couture, Jewellery, Luxury Watch Making…etc will be covered by specialists of the sectors who will guide the students through their discovery process.

The Foundation workshop will be taught over 2 full weeks (75 Hours) and comprise the following modules:

Principles of Marketing – 15 Hours
Quantitative Research Approaches – 15 Hours
Accounting Principles – 15 Hours
Working Methodology – 15 Hours
Project Management – 15 Hours
