Organic Food Chain Management - The New M. Sc. Programme at the University of Hohenheim, Germany, starting in October 2001.06.2005 - (idw) Universität Hohenheim
Sustainability meets Quality
Consumers are increasingly interested in the quality of their food and the manner in which it is produced. For this reason, more and more food is produced and processed according to the standards of organic farming.
As the market for organic products is a growing sector on a world wide scale, there is an increasing need for experts to provide knowledge of organic food chain management, including primary food production, food technology, certification and quality control. To meet this demand, the University of Hohenheim now offers the M. Sc. Programme "Organic Food Chain Management". This programme will prepare people of all nationalities for these challenging tasks and offer them a competitive, state-of-the-art training.
The two-year M. Sc. programme "Organic Food Chain Management" comprises four semesters, during which fifteen thematic modules and the Master Thesis are to be completed. The language of instruction is English. The possibility to combine the compulsory modules with different elective ones offers each student the opportunity to tailor an individual profile according to his or her own personal career aspirations. A personal mentor from the teaching staff is assigned to advise on appropriate profiles and to ensure smooth and goal-oriented study progress.
Each year, 40 students are admitted to the course. The application deadline for the winter semester 2005/2006 is July 15th.
Currently, Hohenheim is the first university in Europe offering a master programme with an emphasis on food chain management in the organic sector.
