I chose the MSc Wine Management because I wanted a dual specialisation. I also wanted to build upon the international dimension of my education. As I don’t come from a wine background, the MSc in Wine Management gave me the basis I needed in the “culture” of the wine and spirits industry. The challenges, the way the market works, the key players and their roles are all fundamental parts of the industry. Aside from the educational aspect of the course, there was a lot of human interaction which I found really valuable. The real highlight of the course was the diverse student body. It was really interesting to exchange ideas together and discover different perspectives.
I currently work as Wine Manager and Assistant Spirits Manager in a large French supermarket within the E. LECLERC group. E. LECLERC is actually the number one wine supplier in France. My role has both a managerial and a commercial aspect. On the management side, I am in charge of a team of about ten people and on the commercial side, I am responsible for turnover, margins, managing lines and stock, purchasing, merchandising, advising customers, promotions, etc. These are my main duties. The wine fairs, in particular, are hugely important for the commercial success and image of the business. Without the MSc, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I got this job because of my blend of skills and I know that this programme has been a real asset in my career progression.
