ESCP Europe has announced plans to launch a Master of Agribusiness Management program.
The new program promises to help students understand the multifaceted issues facing the agribusiness industry, and prepare them for jobs in the field.
"To navigate the complexity of policy, diversification, technology and market structures in an increasingly globalised industry, there is clear demand for highly-skilled individuals with a deep understanding of the sector and the management skills needed to overcome the challenges ahead," according to a press release issued by ESCP Europe.
To address these challenges, the Master of Agribusiness Management program will cover a number of topics in general management and agribusiness management. The curriculum includes classes in core management topics like statistics and microeconomics, as well as more specialized courses like "Agriculture Markets & Pricing," "Strategic Marketing in Agribusiness," and "Agronomy," among others.
The program will take 18 months to complete. The first two semesters will take place in London, while the third will be delivered in Paris.
To apply for the new Master of Agribusiness Management program, candidates do not need work experience. Non-native English speakers will need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score.
ESCP's Master of Agribusiness Management will launch in September 2016.
