The Master of Agricultural Production Chain Management is intended for development specialists working in organisations dealing with agricultural production, processing, marketing, quality control and logistics. Typically, such work will confront them with complex problems that require new thinking and new approaches - providing services on the basis of demand, for example, rather than on the basis of production. The course has three distinct phases: analysis of value chains, development of value chains and management of value chains.

Overall, Agricultural Production Chain Management addresses the competence, enabling graduates to manage organisations or companies involved in agricultural production chain development according to changing demands and policies.

The Master of Agricultural Production Chain Management has two specialisations:

  • Horticulture Chains (1 year Master Programme)
  • Livestock Chains (1 year Master Programme)
