The Ms Fine Food and Wine Management is an international management course specialising in the areas of fine foods and oenology. It is offered by the Collège de Paris group, of which Elfe is a founder member.
The course was designed with the support of the best professionals from the most prestigious Parisian companies. It combines applied management training with practical workshops that provide a sensory experience of what a career in the wine and food business is like.
Each year, matriculation takes place in a Parisian Palace in the presence of the President of the Collège de Paris, Olivier de Lagarde. An induction weekend in the Champagne region and a study trip the the Bordeaux region complement the course.
The course can be taken as a full-time course or as a work-study course, with a timetable of 2 days studying and 3 days working in a company each week.
From the end of 2017, the lectures will take place on the new Collège de Paris campus at the Arche de la Défense!
They host internships or work-study placements for our students, host our events, teach on our courses and contribute to our students' development:
Perrier-Jouët – Fauchon – Ladurée – Champagne Mumm – Cognac Martell – Le Bon Marché – Lavinia – Hermès – Le Meurice – Le Ritz – Le Lutétia – John Paul – Dorchester Collection – Concorde Hôtel Resorts, among others
The students prepare three certifications:

• The MS "Fine Food and Wine Management" accredited by the international organisation Eduniversal

The Collège de Paris course allowed me to deepen my knowledge of “technical” aspects (Finance, Law, Customs), but above all, to meet professionals from the industry, who have been, and still are today, a great source of advice.
