Juliet, recent MSc student, Agricultural Economics 

As an Msc Student of Agricultural Economics you will work with economics and policy in an international perspective with a special emphasis on food, agribusiness and development.  

You will gain knowledge about the way economic incentives can regulate the consumption and production of food, and why rich parts of the world have large food stocks while people in the third world are starving.

The programme also gives you a chance to study industrial organization, and innovation in the food industry, and analyse the agribusiness value chain from farm to fork.
