Throughout the course, a continuous focus is placed on the issue of sustainability – a central concern in Agribusiness as changing dietary habits and demand for quality products and production processes increasingly clash with resource scarcity caused, in part, by a rising global demand for agrarian goods. As a result, this course not only prepares you for current Agribusiness market issues, but for future ones as well.
Agribusiness is a global discipline, which is why this study course is taught entirely in English. This not only improves the general proficiency of students dramatically (particularly non-native speakers), but also familiarises them with professional Agribusiness terminology used extensively throughout the field. Combined with the interpersonal team management skills this study course also imparts to students, you’ll leave our university with a profound expertise of Agribusiness and a professional profile which qualifies you for a career both in Germany as well as globally.Career PathsAs a ‘green’ industry, Agribusiness is one of the most important economical sectors in many countries, including Germany. In North Rhine-Westphalia and the Lower Rhine region in particular, Agribusiness exhibits very promising prospects for the future. Our close contacts to national and international enterprises and institutions in the field of Agribusiness not only increases the practical relevance of the course, but also creates a network for students to connect to to potential future employers.
The Agribusiness programme qualifies graduates to pursue a number of career paths across a wide spectrum of fields and industries, thanks largely to the programme’s broad technical training, which includes classical and modern elements of Agribusiness and adjacent discplines. You also have the ability to select elective modules around a specific theme or discipline, thus adding additional expertise to your professional profile and improving your employment prospects in specific fields or sectors.

The Agribusiness course is strongly characterised 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 realised. Apart from the teaching of technical content and the creation and development of methodical abilities, social competences of each individual are strengthened.
Self-organized learning is a key competence for the 21st Century, and an integral component of a higher education, and is encouraged from the beginning of the course. The imparting of professionally qualified skills and abilities and the promotion of personal competences occurs here to a largely in an integrated and specialized way.
Thereby different forms of learning are implemented, such as lectures, seminars, practical courses, exercises and project work, in order to obtain both classical instructional content (e.g. management economics, marketing, logistics, agricultural and horticultural production) and modern topics of the Agribusiness (e.g. power production, quality management, analysis of value chains) and to integrate the various subjects taught. Due to the global aspect and relevance of Agribusiness, the course is held completely in English.
