PolyU to Launch the First-of-its-kind Master of Science in International Wine Management in Asia to Advance the Global Wine Industry

(PRWEB) February 04, 2015

Introducing this development, Professor Kaye Chon, Dean and Chair Professor of the SHTM and Walter Kwok Foundation Professor in International Hospitality Management, noted that as a key player in the vibrant international wine scene, Hong Kong offers a unique location for anyone aspiring to be a part of this dynamic growth area. He said, Combined with the huge growth of the wine market in Mainland China, the need for wine professionals with advanced, specialised training and education, as well as a global perspective continues to grow. The Master of Science (MSc) in International Wine Management has been designed to meet this demand.

Offered in Hong Kong Asias world city by the SHTM, the programme is the first-of-its-kind in the region. There is an increasing demand for wine trade personnel in Asia, but there is no other Masters programme to enhance their professional competence and strategic thinking, Professor Haiyan Song, Associate Dean of the SHTM and Programme Leader, explained. He noted that recent findings in Hong Kong shows that the wine industry requires more sophisticated skills to meet the needs of the international wine market, with 57.2% of full-time staff taking up positions at managerial and supervisory levels. However, only 5.2% of local industry practitioners possess wine-related professional qualifications.

This one-of-a-kind programme comes in time to help wine professionals to further their academic pathway for progression in the global wine industry. It grooms industry leaders, educators and researchers by deepening their understanding of the latest trends in the wine business, demystifying its complexities, and empowering them to lead the future development of the industry. Students of this programme will also have the opportunity to learn more about Mainland Chinese wine consumers and gain insights into some of the fastest growing and potentially lucrative wine markets in the world.

The programme was developed in consultation with noted wine industry figure Professor Jeannie Cho Lee, Professor of Practice (Wine) of the SHTM and the first Asian Master of Wine (MW), and endorsed by renowned industry leaders. It features residential study trips providing students with the opportunity to visit well-known wine regions, such as Burgundy or Bordeaux, to understand the best practice in wine production, trade and management with a view to increasing their international exposure and developing global networks. Based in the heart of the booming Asia-Pacific region, the SHTM is best placed to provide international education to meet the specific demands of wine industry, a truly global industry, Professor Jeannie Cho Lee remarked.

To be launched in the 2015/16 academic year, this new MSc programme will be available in both full-time and part-time modes.

Marketresearchreports.biz: Economic Slowdown in Europe Fueling the Global Budget Hotels Market

Albany, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2014

The report presents a detailed analysis of the market, combined with plausible insights and information about various market segments of the global budget hotels market. The report states that in the overall hotel industry, budget hotels have been observing a room occupancy rate of 70-80% in some countries.

View Full Report at http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis/229295

Increasing demand for affordable yet sophisticated lodging, rising occupancy of middle-class population, and rising disposable incomes have resulted in increased demand for budget hotels in Asia-Pacific and Africa. On a global front, the fact that budget hotels are less susceptible to financial crisis compared to luxury hotels is fueling demand.

The report on budget hotels includes market data from 40 countries between the years 2009 and 2013. Through in-depth analysis of this data, the report also brings forth key performance indicators of the global budget hotels market. The report segments the budget hotels market on the basis of performance indicators such as occupancy rate, number of rooms, number of hotel establishments, room nights occupied, average room revenue per available room, room nights available, average room revenue per occupied room, total room revenues, average total revenue per available room, total non-room revenues, number of guests, and total revenues for the review period (2009-2013) and the forecast period of the report (2014-2018). Detailed assessment of regional budget hotels markets of the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East is contained in the report.

The study states that the European budget hotels market is the key geographic segment of the global market. Many leading brands operating in the budget hotels business including Ibis, Premier Inn, Motel One, easy Hotel, hotelF1, and Travelodge have a strong presence in Europe. Recent instances of economic depression hovering over a number of European countries have led to a consistent fall in consumer disposable incomes and number of out-of-town vacations. This has resulted in a significant rise in demand for economic lodging, making European budget hotels market a key revenue generator for the overall market during the review period.

Despite Europes strong hold on the market, the U.S. will continue to remain the largest segment of the global budget hotels market during the review period, with net worth totaling approximately US$ 12.4 billion in 2013. However, shares of the budget category of the overall hotel industry remained low in the U.S. compared to those in European countries such as France and the U.K., and Latin American countries such as Argentina, Peru, and Brazil.

The regional budget hotels market of Asia-Pacific registered a strong growth rate during the forecast period. The report states that this regional budget hotels market is becoming increasingly standardized and the level of sophistication is becoming progressively consistent.

Regionally popular midscale and budget hotel brands are expanding their presence in Tier II and Tier III cities of Asia-Pacific such as Zhenzhou and Nanjing in China, and Surat and Chennai in India. International hotel brands are also plodding along the budget hotels business line due to significant growth prospects of the market and extremely low investment required for setting up budget hotels as compared to luxury hotels.
