Bachelors in Food Science in North America 2017. The process from farm to fork is a unique and special process. Every year thousands of new products will enter the market and end up in stores all over the world. The food industry is a rapidly changing business climate, forcing companies to meet the constant demands for improvement. Therefore this industry needs well organised companies who are international orientated, innovative, concerned with international marketing and logistics and have a strong and secure quality approach. This is exactly what our course in International Food Business is focussing on. Future managers in the food business and food sector will need first-hand knowledge of international business practice and chain management. And although North America and Europe have a close bond since time immemorial, the two continents are very different. Consumer behaviour and doing business in North America is very different compared to Europe. If you want to work with these continents you need to adapt to both cultures. Every country is different from the other, so you need to know who and what you are dealing with. The International Food Business programme is unique in many ways, but first and foremost because it is offered by a Dutch and a Canadian University who both offer their Bachelor degree to students who complete this programme, Students study both in Canada and in the Netherlands during the 4 years of study. Professional opportunities If you complete the International Food Business study successfully your employment opportunities will increase dramatically, not only within the national and international agri-food business, but also in other industries. This could include positions such as: - Market Research Manager - Distribution and Logistics Manager - Corporate Sales Manager - Financial Officer - International Sales Consultant - Product Developer - International Marketing Manager Entrance Requirements Admission requires high school (secondary school) graduation at the level of higher general secondary education or pre-university education (Dutch equivalent HAVO-VWO). We advise you to contact us for personal advice and further details. Applicants must submit a motivation letter and resume outlining their commitment to the programme and must be available for a personal interview and an English language test. The decision on your enrolment will be based on all the requirements mentioned above. This Bachelor programme is offered by CAH Vilentum and Dalhousie University, Faculty of Agriculture. You will have the unique opportunity to follow a study in an international class on two continents (dual degree). You will study for one year in Canada. During the first year you will study in the Netherlands together with the European students. In the second year, the Canadian students will join you. In the third year, the entire group will study in Canada. In the fourth year, you will complete your studies in the Netherlands with the option to do your thesis research at an internationally located company. The study language is English throughout the entire course. English language skills are one of the requirements in the application procedure, however the first two years English language classes are part of the programme to further support non-native speakers developing their language skills.

Bachelor in Food Science and Technology A bachelor's degree in Food Science and Technology provides the necessary foundation to pursue any of the many possible food and beverage related career paths. The program integrates principles and concepts in the physical, biological and engineering sciences (including courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physics, math and statistics, biochemistry, microbiology, and food engineering) and applies them to the scientific and technical aspects of food and beverage processing. Students who achieve at least a 2.00 GPA in the required foundation courses in chemistry additionally earn a Chemistry minor. In addition to completing the Food Science and Technology Core, students select from among three options (areas of concentration): Enology and Viticulture Fermentation Science Food Science All curricula are approved by the Higher Education Committee of the Institute of Food Technologists, making students eligible for national and Oregon IFT scholarships, as well as providing universal degree recognition within the food industry. Beyond choosing an option, students are able to further customize their studies through a menu of elective credits, facilitating the development of additional expertise in food related areas such as microbiology, toxicology, nutrition, horticulture, and animal sciences, and crediting formalized career and professional development experiences. Among minors that complement the Food Science and Technology major are Business and Entrepreneurship, Microbiology, and Nutrition. Grade Requirements All courses required for completion of the Food Science and Technology major must be passed, graded on the A–F scale. Included are both "core" and "option" courses in FST, as well as supporting courses in math, sciences, and written and oral communication.
