Tai­lored cour­ses

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Post Graduate -


Course top­ics in­clude wine busi­ness strat­egy, wine en­trepreneur­ship, wine sup­ply chain man­age­ment, viti­cul­ture, food and wine dis­tri­bu­tion, re­tail­ing and how to taste and as­sess food prop­erly.

These cour­ses also pro­vide the nec­es­sary skills to be con­sul­tants and man­agers in wine sales and ex­port, agribusiness, restau­rants and dis­tri­bu­tion com­pa­nies.

For more than a decade, France’s ESSEC (French ab­bre­vi­a­tion of Su­pe­rior School of Eco­nomic Science and Busi­ness) lo­cated in Paris of­fers the MBA in In­ter­na­tional Lux­ury Brand Man­age­ment.

Part­ner­ships with top in­ter­na­tional fash­ion brands ex­pose stu­dents to emerg­ing and ma­ture fash­ion trends while also pro­vid­ing hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing in­ter­na­tional trips to ex­plore lo­cal mar­kets, meet mar­ket an­a­lysts and heads of pres­ti­gious lo­cal firms.

Pre­vi­ous des­ti­na­tions in­clude Hong Kong, Dubai and vis­its to top Ital­ian jewellers such as Bul­gari, Gucci and Fendi.

The lists of guest speak­ers dur­ing the course’s du­ra­tion in­clude pres­i­dents, direc­tors and chief ex­ec­u­tives of Chris­tian Dior Cou­ture, Burberry, L’Oreal and Chanel.

Though dis­tinct, the fun­da­men­tals of these cour­ses re­main sim­i­lar to the tra­di­tional MBA, en­abling stu­dents to be suc­cess­ful in di­verse fields.

As a re­sult, the pop­u­lar­ity of niche MBA cour­ses will con­tinue to drive the ex­is­tence of such pro­grammes for the com­ing years.
