Business of Brewing
Utilizing a format that places groups of students in a simulated "beer market" towards establishing and operating virtual brewing companies, students will learn the importance of planning and budgeting, both areas where they may currently, or soon, contribute. They will also learn the importance of anticipating competitive, regulatory and supply challenges, and their impact on the planning and budgeting processes as well as the overall health of the brewery.
Technical Case Studies
Designed to emulate the dynamics found in commercial breweries, students become part of small work groups where they are assigned case studies based on actual situations from operating breweries. Each group must create and deliver a presentation in the classroom that addresses solutions for their assigned case. As part of our advanced course offerings, the WBA Technical Case Studies is meant for those with a previous understanding of commercial brewing education and brewing technologies.
The WBA Business of Brewing and Technical Case Studies module can be taken individually, or as part of the WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology or WBA Master Brewer programs.
