DescriptionStudents in the agro-environmental management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimizing production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns.
Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates of this programme go on to work in advisory services, for city or regional governments, private companies, or NGOs. They may also find careers at the UN or work in independent consulting, offering assessment services. Students who do their thesis in the context of a specific company are often offered a job there. Many students go on to earn a PhD.
