About the Program
Our Business & Economics of Italian Food & Wine Program is ideal for Business, Economics, Agribusiness, Political Science, and Agricultural Economics majors, as well as any student with an academic or professional interest in local and organic food and wine. You will explore topics of sustainability and farm-to-table philosophies as they affect the economics and operations of Italian farms and vineyards.
For 12 weeks, you'll live in the welcoming city of Siena, home to many specialty foods, including hand-rolled pici pasta, crostini with chicken liver, and panforte nut and fruit cake crafted by local, quality-driven producers. Enroll in four courses for a total of 12 credits in which you will explore how business and economic concepts are woven into the fabric of the Italian food industry.
