Sonoma State Launches Full-Time MBA Focused on the Wine Business

One-year long program aimed at professionals working in the wine industry

Sonoma State University has announced that it will launch a one-year long, full-time MBA program focused on the wine business.

The program, called the "Global Wine MBA," is aimed at "global wine business professionals who desire to further their wine industry knowledge while living in the heart of California wine country," according to the school.

The Global Wine MBA will cover a variety of topics, including data analytics, finance, and cost accounting and controls. It will also help participants develop their managerial communication skills. It's essentially an accelerated version of the school's "Wine MBA," which was a two-year long program.

Classes take place in the evening, so that participants have time to pursue projects or internships during the program.

Sonoma State also offers an Executive Wine MBA.

To apply for the program, interested candidates should have completed at least 24 units of wine-related coursework, or have at least 24 months of wine-related work experience.

The new program is set to launch in the fall. For more information, please see Sonoma State's Global Wine MBA program webpage.
