About the Course

Managing a company in the food and beverage industry is a fascinating task. Food and beverage products are so deeply rooted in the culture of most countries that making and selling them is not only a matter of making and selling good and tasty products, but products that nurture people's body, soul, and heart. Given this, it's not difficult to see that the task quickly becomes complex. The objective of this course is twofold: first, we will focus on contemporary challenges that managers and entrepreneurs in food and beverage businesses should be able to face; and second, we will provide models and tools to design and implement appropriate courses of action to satisfy customers and build an advantage over the competition. This course is made up of four modules and an introduction, each exploring one dilemma that food and beverage companies face. You will be presented with a set of video lectures and guest speakers. These lectures combine an accessible introduction to specific topics integrated with interviews of managers and experts that will give precious insights and examples to the participants. To enhance your learning experience with us, we will make a Documentary on the Excellences of the Modena District available for you, which is in a format that we have developed specifically for this course in order to give you the chance to experience first-hand the territory as our on-campus students usually do. Each module is paired with an evaluated quiz and weekly discussion forums to reflect on the variety of the F&B world, its complexity, and the power of the network that we will build together during the course. Successful completion of the quizzes is required for a course certificate as explained in the Grading Policy. Below the guest speakers of the course: Masterchef Italia Sky – Nils Hartmann, Head of Movie Channels at Sky Italia – Eataly - Paolo Bongiovanni, Marketing Director Italy – Berlucchi – Paolo Ziliani, Owner – Joia Restaurant – Alta Cucina Naturale – Pietro Leemann, Owner and Chef – Branca – Nicolò Branca, Owner – Barilla – Giuseppe Morici, President Region Europe – Proyecto Expo 2015 Chile – Guillermo Ariztia, Chile Pavillon Director – Winery Il Cavallante, Milano – Sergio Morpurgo, Owner Heineken – Floris Cobelens, Marketing Director – TRDN – Martin Oetting, Managing Director – GROM – Federico Grom, Owner and Founder – Tetra Pak – Matthew Hatton, Director Competitor Intelligence – BioHombre – Matteo Panini, CEO – Acetaia Maletti – Carmen & Claudio Maletti Cantine Riunite & CIV – Vanni Lusetti, CEO; Francesca Benini, Sales & Marketing Manager; Elena Lottici, Export Manager; Mario Vandi, Brand Manager – GlemGas – Marco Guerzoni, Program Product Manager – Bibendum Catering – LaFranceschetta58 – Sabrina Lazzereschi & Marta Pulini, Owners and Founders – , DISCLAIMER - Since most of the videos are conducted with those whose native language is not English, we have decided to sometimes preserve their more emphatic speech to keep a tighter match between the audio and the subtitles....

It's not easy, but it shouldn't be. If you go in with the intent to learn with interest in the subject. You will learn a lot. More than I thought I would. I'm a little sad that it is coming to an end.

Buen curso. Permite organizarte al tener los vídeos divididos por bloques tanto por semanas como por apartados. Además los ejemplos y entrevistas ayudan a una mejor comprensión.

Wonderful course, great material, interesting interviews, I learned a lot and enjoyed it very much! However it is more focused on marketing strategies than management itself.
