M.Sc. Agricultural Production Chain Management

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.

M.Sc. Applied Stochastics

For many complex systems in nature and society, stochastics can be used to efficiently describe the randomness present in all these systems, thereby giving the data greater explanatory and predictive power. Examples include statistical mechanics, financial markets, mobile phone networks, and operations research problems. The Master’s specialisation in Applied Stochastics will train you to become a mathematician that can help both scientists and businesspeople make better decisions, conclusions and predictions. You’ll be able to bring clarity to the accumulating information overload they receive.
