“The MBA Luxury Brand Management Food & Wine immediately attracted me because the program combines fashion and food & wine: at the time the choice to specialize in wine was not yet defined. This MBA invites you to understand all aspects of the luxury sector, to acquire the necessary technical knowledge to be able to integrate the biggest houses, and especially to sharpen up your professional project.

I work as a development manager at Legrand & Co, which has a historic wine cellar in Paris, a trading company in Bordeaux, as well as a large Bordeaux château and grands crus de Bourgogne. I am in charge of the development of the Chinese market. I mainly deal with all commercial activity as well as the whole marketing and communication part of adopting new strategies for the Chinese market.”
