The School of Wine & Spirits Business, founded in 2013, is a structure dedicated to education and research in the wine and spirits industries. Our programmes prepare graduates to become capable specialists who trade in wines and spirits, market their products innovatively and play managerial roles in all divisions of these demanding industries. Located in Dijon, the capital of the world renowned wine-growing region of Burgundy, the School of Wine & Spirits Business is part of the centennial Burgundy School of Business (Groupe ESC Dijon – Bourgogne), itself a member of the elite group of French tertiary business institutes collectively known as Conférence des Grandes Ecoles. The School has incorporated three existing wine-industry programmes, the oldest of which was founded in 1988. As these programmes attract candidates from all over the world, the student body is culturally diverse, making for stimulating group assignments and class discussions. Within Burgundy School of Business' substantial teaching body, ten permanent faculty members dedicate themselves specifically to our programmes and are committed to excellence in teaching and generating intellectual output. Visiting lecturers from both the professional and academic fields reflect the international nature of the School in the variety of their countries of origin.
