This study programme is only available in German.
The degree programme principally distinguishes itself through its two (alternate) specialisations in business administration and marketing and agricultural and food policy. In both specialisations students gain practice-oriented key qualifications for the resolution of economic and social questions in land and food economy. Project management, the ability to think systemically and leadership skills as well as the application of modern information technologies are integral elements of the degree programme. There is a broad spectrum of occupations in land and food economy for which graduates of this programme are qualified, from production of agricultural products and food to industrial raw materials and bioenergy. The degree programme provides the students with excellent skills which can be applied especially in self-employed work, management functions as well as in research institutions.
The degree programme in Agricultural and Food Economy provides the students with interdisciplinary and integrative knowledge and skills which are needed in the agricultural production chain. Human and animal food as well as renewable primary products are central aspects of the course.
The relatively small number of compulsory subjects include mainly introductory courses and more in-depth courses in agricultural business administration, agricultural marketing as well as methods of rural regional development, two subject-specific excursions and the course “International Commodity Markets and Trade Policy”. The above-mentioned specialisations (business administration and marketing or agricultural and food policy) are not compulsory, thus the contents can be ideally adapted to the students' individual requirements.
