From 20 January to 5 February, BEM’s Wine MBA welcomed in Bordeaux their ninth 2010-11 Wine MBA class, whose Mentor is François Lurton.
On several accounts the 2010-11 vintage is exceptional:

– The international scope of the program is one of its main assets. This year again, the 14 Wine MBA participants represent 10 different nations: 3 are from the USA, 2 from Canada, 2 from the UK,1 from Brazil, 1 Italian, 1 Russian, 1 Argentinean, 1 from Chile, 1 from Portugal and 1 from France. As usually, the strong presence of Anglo-Saxon participants proves that the program is indeed recognized as a reference for high potential wine executives.

– Following the signature last November of a partnership agreement with Hong Kong University Space, and for the first time in the program’s history, 11 participants from the 21-participant Hong Kong cohort were present in Bordeaux for their first session of courses.
