Program Description:
Chilean skyline

Chile is known for its wine industry, which is one of the most vigorous in the Americas. It is the eighth biggest producer of wine in the world, and the fourth biggest exporter. It ranks as the number one ‘new world’ exporter – more than 80 percent of production is shipped around the globe. In fact, the land and climate in certain parts of Chile are so good for growing wine grapes that some of the most influential French and American wine companies have invested heavily in the Chilean industry. The result of this infusion of both money and knowledge makes Chile an exciting, enriching, educational place to study wine supply chains. This seminar will lead students to understand managerial practices in a global environment. It will expose students to the global wine industry and the role Chilean wines play in the world market. Specifically, students will learn how to map and analyze a commodity supply chain. They will identify the different actors in the supply chain; understand various strategies to grow the business while responding to pressures from the consumers.
