The twin-campus International Diploma in Brewing Technology program will prepare graduates to advance their careers through practical application of brewing.
This 12-week program is comprised of segments, divided into one-to-three-week modules, with each module specializing in a particular area of brewing technology. The content will address issues in brewing from an international perspective, providing a depth of experience that is unavailable through any other institution.
The Diploma Program starts with 7 weeks of brewing theory and business issues conducted at our Siebel Institute campus in Chicago. Students build a sound understanding of the sciences and technologies that are used throughout breweries of all sizes. After the Chicago modules are completed, students then travel to Doemens Academy in Munich, Germany, where they apply the knowledge gained from their first 7 weeks of study in the practical brewing environment at Doemens. Students also participate in advanced-level brewing theory training while at Doemens, including presentations regarding brewing techniques used in creating authentic German beer styles.
Finally, students travel on the European Study Tour to breweries and brewing-industry suppliers, learning how the information they have gained in the Diploma Program is utilized in real-world brewing environments. Over the 12 weeks of the WBA Diploma Program, students will gain a truly international perspective on brewing techniques and technologies.
