Description

The Master of Agricultural Production Chain Management is intended for 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 innovative thinking and new approaches - providing services on the basis of demand, for example, rather than on the basis of production.

The agricultural industry is currently more vibrant and resourceful than ever before, with both company expansions and bankruptcy occurring on a regular basis. With production chains stretching from desolate farms in South East Asia to the bustling market places of Northern America the world will be your work place! The programme has three distinct phases: analysis of value chains, development of value chains and management of value chains.

The aim is to enable graduates to manage organisations or companies involved in agricultural production chain development in line with fluctuations in demands and policies. With two unique specialisations in horticulture and livestock chains, VHL is ready to equip you for working the world of animals, flowers and food. From farm to fork or field to market, this programme has all the basics you need to start your own business or manage someone elses. If you are a graduate with an interest in managing an agri-related business, this programme will prepare you for the wear and tear of one of the worlds most important, and powerful, industries.
