About

Students on this programme will study in parallel with our agronomy-economics students, forming a sizable group with a genuine interest in agriculture. The Agricultural Economics and Management programme from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences offers you a great opportunity to develop your understanding and skills of business administration or economics.

Overview

Ongoing structural changes make great demands of those involved in the agricultural sector. Detailed understanding of the issues is needed to meet the major challenges facing the sector. With a Master´s degree in Agricultural Economics and Management you will gain a broad understanding of business administration or economics as they apply to agriculture, agribusiness and agricultural policy.

In business administration you are offered courses in fields such as production economics, quantitative finance, strategic management, cooperatives and agrimarketing as well as in ethics. With a major in economics, there are choices among environmental policy, demand for agricultural products, international food system analysis and sustainable development. A number of these courses are offered jointly with Uppsala University.

The Agricultural Economics and Management programme from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, which is in English, is open to students with a Bachelor´s degree in business administration or economics, wishing to gain a deeper understanding of agricultural and agribusiness issues in particular.

The program is given in close collaboration with the European Master's Programme in Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA), thus students may also benefit from the international orientation beyond the four semester Agricultural Economics and Management study programme.
