The Master in Brand Design and Management: Food, Wine and Tourism trains professionals with a new approach towards management in the tourism, hospitality, gastronomy and wine sector.

In this day and age, launching and boosting a brand in these sectors requires a cross-sector skill set and 360° vision. This course is inspired by Barcelona and Florence, the two cities where it is taught. Students will spend one semester in each city given that they are both key tourist destinations in Europe, helping them to understand and work with the identity and values of the major tourism, gastronomy and oenology brands.  

Theoretical lessons in the classroom are followed by practical project experience in the form of group activities coordinated by professionals and experts. The programme is rounded off with visits to relevant locations and master classes delivered by specialists in tourism, food and wine.

Master Food, Wine And Tourism


– The Master’s main goal is to encourage the development of professional proficiency by implementing an active approach based on “Learning by doing” that blends expertise and listening skills through both practical and theoretical methods related to “Design Thinking”.

– The aim is also to train strategy and communication experts in identity-building and values related to brands in the food, wine and tourism industry.


The Master in Brand Design and Management is divided into two operational modules that have an individual study path related to the city they are in. Each module will end with an exam and a final project. The courses are partly carried through the entirety of the Masters and partly specific to the different locations.
