What you will learn

Food systems exist at the nexus of human health and environmental sustainability. And food makes abstract concepts personal. New discoveries, particularly in biology, are transforming everything about the food system. Every innovator in food should have a solid understanding of the latest science and how to apply it in business. In this first-of its kind course, led by a team of world-class scientist-educators from the University of California, Davis, we’ve integrated these topics in a way that reflects state-of-the art systems-thinking and intelligence. Along with a team of fellow learners, faculty, and course mentors, you will spend five weeks in a collaborative, online learning environment, gaining access to the fundamental scientific and technical information you need in order to create solutions to our most pressing food-connected problems.

With its roots in ancient cultures as early as 6,000 BC, wine has long been part of the human experience. Today, increasing worldwide interest in wine and its complexities and varieties has created an international market valued at $304 billion annually.
