For future managers who are passionate about food and agriculture, the Master of Science in Food and Agribusiness Management programme from Audencia Business School delivers top academic and practical business knowledge to better manage the world food challenges in a responsible and innovative manner.


With the increasing impact of globalisation and advancing technologies, the food, agrienergy and agricultural industries are in a state of expansion and evolution. As two of the world’s leading countries in agribusiness, France and Brazil are poised to play a fundamental role in the future of the food industry. 

In the Master of Science in Food and Agribusiness Management (FAM) programme from Audencia Business School, you’ll learn to excel in all aspects of food and agribusiness management, explore the latest design trends in the field, incorporate design thinking and techniques into your work and share best practices from all over the world. 

You’ll also earn degrees from two of the top schools in France and Brazil:

  • Master of Science from Audencia Business School in Nantes, France
  • MBA from FECAP Business School in São Paulo, Brazil

You’ll gain the tools you need to design innovative solutions for the challenges these enterprises face, manage all aspects of agribusiness operations and market food products effectively. 

The programme includes:

  • Internationalised study in both France and Brazil
  • Courses taught by top Audencia and IED faculty as well as ABAG industry professionals
  • Guest lectures and workshops led by industry experts
  • Field trips to a variety of SME, SMI and multinational agribusiness companies
  • Practical master’s project with Terrena, expert in responsible, ecologically intensive farming
  • Collaborative, cross-disciplinary project between agribusiness, design, veterinary, law and management students (id4Food)
  • Worldwide, hands-on internship


The world’s massive agricultural industry needs leaders who can tackle complex issues. With the global population growing at unprecedented rates, food production will need to double – and geopolitical matters, limited water supplies and concerns about sustainability are becoming increasingly important.? As a FAM graduate, you’ll have two key advantages in the global agribusiness marketplace:

  • A double degree (Master of Science and MBA)
  • Practical experience in two national business environments


Audencia is among the elite 1% of business schools to hold triple accreditation from EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. Our strong international partnerships serve as the foundation of your FAM programme. You’ll work with faculty members who have extensive industry experience, researchers who specialise in the field, and agribusiness and agrienergy corporate partners.
