Profile and Career

The programme aims to educate entrepreneurs and leaders to be in charge of and develop sustainable and innovative solutions for the future and within all sectors that have to do with the sustainable production, use, management, breeding etc. of healthy animals in healthy herds.

You will be able to create your own personal academic profile by specializing in e.g. animal production, genetics and breeding, animals used for sport purposes, leisure, and animals we study to improve our understanding of human biology and diseases.
