The program must demonstrate: availability of expertise within the Faculty or from the Wine Industry to provide guidance to the student; feasibility of the study within the constraints of resources and time; necessity of the study to the student’s overall academic objectives; defined boundaries of the topic and depth of study, industry input necessary to complete the study and at the level of academic rigor appropriate to graduate diploma level.
