The Wine Business Management Program at Niagara College doesn’t just present students with the knowledge they need to succeed. The faculty and professors are highly involved in the wine industry, and this is leveraged to provide hands on, immersive, quality education. The foundation of this program prepared me as my wine career evolved from food & beverage, to winery events, retail and e-commerce. I was able to attain much more than just the knowledge to succeed, they taught me to think like an industry leader and continually strive for innovation.
