George Brown announces new wine, beer & spirits program

George Brown College’s Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts (CHCA) announced they are now offering a postgraduate program in wine and beverage business management.

A first-of-its-kind program, The Advanced Wine and Beverage Business Management postgraduate program allows students to "gain superior knowledge of beverage alcohol products and acquire skills in financial management, business management, human resources, marketing and communications."

So if you've ever wanted a career as a beverage director, sales agent, territory manager, product consultant, brand ambassador, wine steward/cellar master, specialty retail operation, portfolio manager, and as merchandising/inventory coordinator, this is for you.

The program is full time, completed over three semesters through George Brown’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.

"The core of what we wish to achieve through this program would be to have well-trained graduates with professional knowledge of the alcohol beverage industry," says Dario Guescini, Chair, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, CHCA. “Students will master the areas of wine, beer, mixology, food pairing, and then expand on those fundamentals with an understanding of food and beverage business management. They will also have the opportunity to learn though field placements at wineries, breweries and distilleries."
