International career : Alice BRENGARD, US National Sales Manager for a Corsican Domaine,
Alumni Promotion 2014
After doing my high school in New Caledonia, I got it the Ecole de Commerce Europeenne, a school that is part of the INSEEC Group. I chose this college for its international opportunities and I graduated with a Master in Marketing. My third-year internship in a wine cellar made me want to pursue a career in the wine industry. Hence, I decided to complete my education with a MBA Wine Marketing and Management at the INSEEC Wine & Spirits Institute.
I had driven my career to be international and I was looking for a valid diploma in the wine and spirits industry to complete my education. This MBA was the perfect option as a final international certification.
As a result, I am now the US National Sales Manager for Domaine Terra Vecchia, which is the largest winery in Corsica. Based in Los Angeles, I manage our sales in more than 10 states along with our clients and marketing programs and campaigns within the US.
My advice for students would be to connect with as many classmates as possible because the network is part of how you build your career, to listen to every word a professional or teacher has to say and of course to enjoy every minute at the Wine & Spirits Institute because it’s an amazing experience and great years in once life!
