Certificate in Beverage Business Management
The Certificate in Beverage Business Management is a not-for-credit program designed
to provide professionals in the beverage industries a well-balanced background in
all of the functional areas of business and emphasize the transfer of industry specific
knowledge and skills. Participants earn the certificate by attending four, three-day
sessions that are offered on a quarterly basis throughout the year. Classes are
designed to meet industry needs and are delivered live in Fort Collins and other
select regional locations. Nationally recognized guest speakers and tours of local
businesses are integral parts of the education and enhance the practical orientation
of the program.
Besides the opportunity to acquire additional expertise the program offers attendees
