Course description This specialisation has been designed to help professionals develop the knowledge and skills needed to remain in the horticulture sector, adapt to changes and help stakeholders optimise their processes.Designed to increase professionals' ability to anticipate and exploit these developments, this programme examines each stakeholder in the chain (suppliers, farmers, processors, traders, retailers and consumers), particularly in the stages from input to processing. It also approaches the overall chain from the perspective of logistics, economics, quality control, marketing channels and information flows. This gives graduates a complete helicopter view of the horticulture sector. The Master of Agricultural Production Chain Management is intended for professionals working in organisations dealing with agricultural production, processing, marketing, quality control and logistics. If you are a mid-career professional with an interest in managing an agri-related business, this programme will prepare you for the wear and tear of one of the world's most important and powerful industries.
Study subjects The study year is divided into a nine-month taught programme and a three-month thesis research project. During the initial teaching period, students will conduct value chain analyses, in which they will learn how to describe the organisational concepts underlying the production and supply chains and the limitation of supply-chain management in developing countries. Furthermore, students will study horticulture chains with four specialist modules and focus on their professional development. Gradu
