Overview

In the agricultural sector, stakeholders are typically confronted by complex problems that require innovative thinking and new approaches, i.e. creating shared values and linking farmers to markets, agricultural support or business services.

With agri-food or forest chains stretching from desolate farms or plantations in Asia, Africa or Latin America to the bustling market places of the European Union – the world is your work place! The programme has three distinct phases: analysis and sustainable development of value chains, integrated management of value chains and applied research. Collectively, these phases develop students’ competences in managing organisations or companies involved in and/or facilitating developments in the agricultural production chain, while keeping up with fluctuations in demands and policies.

With three unique specialisations in horticulture, forest and livestock chains, Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences is ready to equip students for work in the world of livestock, food, flowers and forest products. From farm to fork, grass to glass or forest to floor, this Master programme provides all the competences needed for those wishing to start an agri-food business or facilitate sustainable agricultural value chain developments.
