Erasmus Mundus label renewed for the Wintour Master!
The EU has renewed the Wintour Master program’s Erasmus Mundus accreditation for the next four cohorts. This good news comes at the same time as the first cohort celebrated their graduation in Spain.
Launched in September 2016, the Wintour Master specializes in wine tourism innovation. The program is coordinated by the Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain), in partnership with the University of Porto (Portugal) and the Institute of Vine and Wine Science of the University of Bordeaux.
This Master, taught entirely in English, benefits from the skills and expertise of three UNESCO world heritage regions, all with strong touristic activity and long-standing traditions of wine production. Students spend one semester in each university of the consortium, and then complete their training with a four-month professional internship. The program teaches students to become multi-skilled and highly qualified professionals in the tourism and wine industries, who will then, as graduates, be able to bring much added-value to this rapidly growing and well-known sector.
The Institute of Vine and Wine Science (ISVV) has already hosted two cohorts for a semester. The subjects covered focus on the wine tourism offer and specificities of the Bordeaux region.
The Wintour Master is one of 42 projects selected for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) funding. This will allow 67 students to benefit from scholarships when following the program.
