The Royal Dutch Grain and Feed Trade Association have developed in cooperation with Wageningen Academy the Master Course Agri & Food. The Master Course prepares professionals in the Agri & Food industry, like yourself, to face and overcome the challenges in this sector.

As an upcoming senior manager, you are required to perform in competitive, innovative business models and will need to develop successful strategies in everchanging market conditions. To help you meet this challenge, this Master Course offers the scientific knowledge, business insights and practical skills that are currently on the industry’s agenda.

The Master Course Agri & Food

The Master Course consists of 11 modules. Renowned academic teachers and industry experts will provide you with the latest knowledge about different aspects of the Agri & Food industry. Each module is built around a central theme. You will have the opportunity to develop a vision and apply the scientific insights within business cases, as well as within your own business situation. In addition to increasing your knowledge, you will also have the chance to improve your professional skills.

In between the modules, you will work on an ongoing assignment, formulated by yourself. This should ideally focus on an actual challenge or development within your company. After each module, you add to your assignment, which will assimilate a final, complete paper at the end of the Master Course. In the last module, you will present the paper to a panel of experts, who will critically review the work.
