Program content

Students on this programme will study in parallel with our agronomy-economics students, forming a sizable group with a genuine interest in agriculture. The Agricultural Economics and Management programme offers you a great opportunity to develop your understanding and skills of business administration or economics. You will choose one of these two subjects as your major on the programme, building your own profile by your choice of optional courses.

  • In business administration, you are offered courses in fields such as production economics, quantitative finance, strategic management, cooperatives and agrimarketing as well as in ethics.
  • With a major in economics, there are choices among environmental policy, demand for agricultural products, international food system analysis and sustainable development. A number of these courses are offered jointly with Uppsala University.

The programme, which is in English, is open to students with a Bachelor´s degree in business administration or economics, wishing to gain a deeper understanding of agricultural and agribusiness issues in particular.

The program is given in close collaboration with the European Master's Programme in Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA), thus students may also benefit from the international orientation beyond the four semester Agricultural Economics and Management study programme.
