The study programme

Agricultural produce forms the basis of the food products that we purchase and use to prepare the meals we eat every day. Agribusiness professionals have the challenging job of marketing healthy and sustainably produced food products at a profit, while considering inflation, a constantly changing international market, social pressure and the environment. Our 1.5-year double bachelor’s honours (EED) programme in International Agribusiness prepares you to manage the process of bringing food from farm to fork. It is a hands-on programme where you get to demonstrate what you have learned in internships at agribusiness companies. Two semesters are spent at our partner university ESA Groupe in Angers, France.
