Why study at the UAO CEU?

1. Future projection

On the whole, there has been an explosion of interest in Food and Wine across Europe in recent years, and just two decades ago it would have been difficult to predict just how much of a media phenomenon it would become. Given this surge in the popularity of food and wine as leisure activities, economic initiatives related to this sector have snowballed, and this sector has literally taken off both in the media and the retail environment. This new economic dimension has encouraged companies within the sector to position their product offering, in order to attract the interest of new national and international markets

As a result, this postgraduate aims to respond to the needs of companies in the Food and Wine industry, which require highly skilled information managers for their activities and products, as well as media professionals and students who may wish to specialise in this future area.

2. Growing sector

Programme oriented to the professional environment in a growing sector such as the food and wine communication field.

Programme designed to facilitate the access to active professionals.

3. Collaborators

Programme developed with a close relationship with important companies of the sector, which are actively involved with the formation of this postgraduate.

4. Faculty

5. Employability

The average work placement rate is 95% in the postgraduate studies of the CEU.

6. Information resources

The Library Service is conceived as a support unit for study and research. Its most important objective is to meet the educative and scientific demands. It has convenient opening hours, including weekends, with the best computer equipment.
