Initiatives

MFB is also a bouquet of experiences

The Master of Management in Food & Beverage benefits from the presence and the collaboration of different kinds of food and beverage companies, which provide participants with experience and know-how. The aim of company presentations and company visits is both the opportunity to illustrate several business models in food and beverage industry, and the possibility to share main international and Italian excellence in this field. Both company presentations and company visits are incredible opportunities for networking and getting in contact with recruiting departments of interesting organizations.


  • "Thanks to company visit I not only draw an in-depth thought of theoretical skills and managerial know-how when picked up on class, but also taste a holistic savour of Italian excellence."
    Jinyu Huang | MFB 2015, Chinese/French

 

  • SDA Bocconi School of Management
    Masterclass #GrappaNonino con i giovani studenti del Master of Management in Food & Beverage della SDA Bocconi School of Management. La Nonino è stata invitata, insieme ad Antinori e Della Valle, a partecipare al modulo "Italian Excellence". Il modulo è stato disegnato per esplorare come la cultura italiana sia una delle principali caratteristiche del vantaggio competitivo che l'Italian Excellence rappresenta e per ragionare criticamente sulle opportunità e le sfide che le aziende-simbolo Italiane si trovano ad affrontare. Un grande onore e un grande riconoscimento all’impegno, al rigore e all’innovazione che ci contraddistinguono da sempre!
