Admission to the Enology and Wine Business Certificate Program 2016-2017
The Enology and Wine Business Certificate Program offered jointly by EVN Wine Academy and the Geisenheim University provides a professional specialization with intensive on-the-job training in winemaking and wine business.
The recent positive developments in the Armenian wine industry sparked the development of the EVN Wine Academy. Through education, research, and consultancy, the EVN Wine Academy is sustaining the Armenian winemaking sector in many respects, particularly through the international certificate program in Enology and Wine Business.
This certificate program is administered by the EVN Wine Academy and the renowned Geisenheim University at the International Center for Agribusiness Research and Education (ICARE) in Yerevan, Armenia.
The program is based on an 18-month curriculum, which includes three preparatory courses. The curriculum is taught in English and focuses on interaction between students, international instructors, wine experts, wineries, and other actors in the wine industry. Classes are conducted in the evenings three times a week to provide students flexibility to work or study elsewhere.
This program includes national and international internships at wineries, local and international study trips, and workshops.
Over the three month intensive preparatory period, the students attend courses in General and Technical English and Introductory Chemistry. Eleven core courses and a one month internship must then be completed to graduate with the joint-certificate.
