About

The Master in Rural Development Engineer offered by the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences from Szent István University focuses primarily on the understanding of the current problems of sustainable development and rural regions, the cooperation in the possible directions of development, the preparation of actual development projects, as well as the management and monitoring of project implementation. 

The training also covers the questions of loss minimization after harvests, development and management of local markets, as well as logistics management and warehousing.
