The Oregon wine industry has grown exponentially in the past 20 years and is in need of employees who can contribute valuable expertise to enhance the growth and more importantly, the profitability of wineries that are struggling to compete in a highly competitive, global marketplace. To combat this, Linfield College has created a new Wine Management Professional Series, designed to provide individuals interested in entering the wine business, or those already working in it, with the core knowledge they need to effectively manage a successful winery operation.
A Certificate of Completion will be issued to individuals finishing all six modules, having demonstrated successful fulfillment of coursework and mastery of learning objectives for each module. In Module Six, participants will have the opportunity to develop a winery business and financial plan that incorporates the curriculum concepts from the previous five modules. These business plans will be reviewed by a panel of wine industry experts to provide valuable feedback for the participants. Click here to learn more or to register.
