General Course Information
Course Code WINE 7002 Course Evaluating Domestic and International Wine Markets Coordinating Unit Business School Term Trimester 1 Level Postgraduate Coursework Location/s North Terrace Campus Units 3 Contact Up to 36 hours Available for Study Abroad and Exchange Y Course Description This course provides students with insights into the nature, structure, functional variables, and the complexities of the world's wine markets.
The impact of globalisation on the wine industry is analysed utilising a typology of open, government-controlled and emerging wine markets.
In the process, the focus is across-the-board on the relative attractiveness of the domestic (Australian) and various countries' wine markets and the differences between them, especially how these influence profitability. In addition, it examines key drivers in the world wine market and their impact on wine export dynamics and characteristics.
There is an emphasis on matching the wine offering and the wine business capability with wine market opportunity as defined by wine consumer demand and by route to market factors and on specifying the market entry, and distribution strategies required to convert the identified market potential into profitable export sales.
The key issue of wine industry competitiveness and its determinants is examined throughout, as it manifests itself through the export performance of specific wine-producing countries.

The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.
