BA in Agribusiness
In the economic course of Agribusiness, the competence for economic evaluation and control of value chains in agricultural and horticultural products will be taught. Both economical know-how and management competence will be taught and sociological aspects of the Agribusiness will be assessed. Beyond that, further subjects and modules impart a fundamental understanding of the processes in agricultural and horticultural as part of the supply chain of agrarian goods. Changing dietary habits and demands on products and process quality, also due to the globally rising demand for agrarian goods, with a simultaneous shortage of resources, is central to the subject of Agribusiness. Traceability of the goods and risk management along the value chain are also important topics for the future.
The Agribusiness course is strongly characterized by the combination of economics and sociological subjects, combined with technical-scientific content from the agriculture and horticulture. With numerous contacts to enterprises and institutions in the agricultural sector, both nationally and abroad, an application-oriented course with a high measure of practical input is realized. Apart from the teaching of technical content and the creation and development of methodical abilities, social competences of each individual are strengthened.
