For dynamic all-rounders

In the Netherlands alone, more than 400,000 people ride horses and over 70,000 companies are involved with them, resulting in a business turnover of 1.3 billion Euros. Another important sector of the Dutch animal industry is the livestock sector, which counts over 1.5 million dairy cows, 12 million pigs and 95 million chickens. Both the livestock and equine sector deliver excellent quality products and services. None of this would be possible if the fullest attention were not paid to the care, health and welfare of animals.
Together with business management, marketing and innovation, these lie at the heart of this degree programme.

You will acquire an excellent understanding of animal and business management, of the various business types involved in the equine and... [-]
