[eNews] MSc Wine Appreciation Workshop

The HKUST MSc Programs strives to provide a diversified business education to students. We have identified business etiquette as an integral part of business education, and wine culture, as an important pillar of business etiquette.

60 students and staff members from the MSc in Global Operations, Information Systems Management, International Management and Investment Management programs gathered to attend a wine appreciation workshop on March 1.  Our BBA alumnus Mr Denman CHAN was invited to share with our students the beauty of wine.

During the workshop, Denman talked to participants about how they could identify, order, appreciate and socialize over wine. One of the highlights of the workshop was when students volunteered to open sparkling wines with Denman’s tips.

The workshop ended with useful advices on food and wine pairing, and responsible drinking. Students all expressed great enjoyment at this workshop and stayed behind at the mingling session to learn more from Denman.

Mr Chan is currently the Trade Marketing Director in P&G Taiwan. He is a wine connoisseur, educator and judge with a WSET Level 4 Diploma qualification from Wine & Spirit Education Trust and French Wine Scholar Qualification. We deeply appreciate Denman’s effort in making this workshop a big success!
