Program Overview

Participate in a case study utilizing a holistic approach to risk management in a unique market, the Bordeaux wine industry. This course focuses on the issues that impact managing risk such as risk identification, the cost of risk, the impact of risk, and how to deal with risk.  Another unique element of this program is looking at the impact of tradition on risk management, as Bordeaux’s wine market has centuries of tradition and culture that influence business practices.  Our program includes academic lectures at the University of Bordeaux to explore these practices and the local economy. 

In today’s global business environment, responses to risk have international implications.  After participating in this program you will be able to identify risks within an industry and appropriate solutions to mitigate those risks.  You will also be able to assess the impact traditions have on business behavior within a specific geographic and cultural context.  As part of the coursework you will develop your own risk management plan taking into account the complexities and cultural values of this nearly 2000 year-old market.
