Master company for the professional Master Agribusiness Development
This master offers a combination of theory and practice in a one-year programme in which the student develops the competences needed to be successful in agribusiness. The Master is international, attracting both students from Europe and other parts of the world. At the centre of the programme is the Master company where the student works on a challenging project. This combination of theory and practice is highly valued by the students.
Becoming a Master company?
The students work at the Master company from September to August, a period in which the students have nine weeks of lectures in Dronten. The last months of the year are dedicated to writing a research thesis. The connection of the student with the Master company is a mix between the traditionally know internship and a traineeship. Are you interested to offer a student a place in your company to work on a challenging project? Below you find the context that is needed.
Requirements of the context
For a company to be a Master company, the company needs to be active in the international agribusiness. The student works on a challenging project that is of strategic importance for the company. The student works in close co-operation with other persons in the company who have a direct interest in the challenging project. The project is analysed by the student from a more theoretical perspective in the research phase while writing a thesis. The challenging project needs to have the following characteristics:
- High in complexity (more challenging and more difficult than a clear and practical assignment for an intern)
- Innovative (it is crossing borders of what is known)
- Multidisciplinary (the student needs to work with different aspects and departments in the company)
- Strategic (the project is of importance for and has influence on the Master Company for the middle and long term)
