Sonoma State University Announces Hybrid Executive MBA in Wine Business

Students will study a mix of online and in-class modules

The university known as a premier institution for studying the US wine business has added another wine industry program to its offering.

Sonoma State University already offers an MBA and an Executive MBA in Wine Business. But from Fall 2018 a Hybrid MBA in Wine Business will be added, allowing students to study at least partially online from home.

Hybrid MBA programs that mix online and in-class learning are becoming increasingly common as schools work to attract professionals who are unable to undertake full-time on-campus study due to work or family commitments.

On the Hybrid MBA in Wine Business, students will study three-month modules online, and then head on to campus for four 10-day residential modules in between.

Study topics include wine value chain strategies and management, brand management, and investments, mergers, and acquisitions. Students will also complete an individual integrative change project.
