Marketing activities and skills need to change in step with the deep and often contradictory changes underway in our environment, including digital technology and the development of a participatory culture turning consumers into ethical consumers, a sense of belonging to several communities through affinity or emotional ties, the emergence of a trend towards a more responsible form of marketing and new forms of competition based on the creation of open ecosystems involving “business partners”.

It was with these changes in mind that we designed the MSc Marketing & Brand Management, working with a team of teacher-researchers and companies who are part of the KEDGE Business School ecosystem. The professors belong to one of Europe’s best-known Research Centres, the KEDGE BS “Marketing Centre of Excellence”.... [-]

"Wine and spirits constitute an ever-changing ecosystem, a fragmented industry, a complex yet fascinating one. To gain an understanding of the product and the marketplace it’s necessary to have solid technical bases, but also to be able to assess the financial, economic, marketing and environmental issues, the trends, the opportunities, and the constraints. To meet tomorrow’s challenges, students need to have been given the keys, to be guided, and then to develop a global vision.

At the Kedge Wine & Spirits Academy, we rely on an experienced education team which has a fine understanding of the current issues, on our researchers, on our network, our strong relationships with the key players of the trade, in Bordeaux and elsewhere, to pass on knowledge and develop analytical skills. In our specialized Master's programs, we work with some of the most famous figures of the wine and spirits industry, to make sure that pedagogy goes hand in hand with expertise, that our students will be able to accompany the changes of the sector. To shape future wine leaders, we are committed to excellence."... [-]
