Career perspectives for alumni

Agricultural sciences and rural development are the central components of international development cooperation and world trade. In both fields, there is a growing need for qualified employees, including especially organic agriculture.

Career opportunities include:

  • European and international agricultural administration and consultancy
  • Organic agriculture
  • Economic sectors related to agriculture
  • International organisations
  • Science and research

The scientific and project-oriented study programme teaches methodical, cooperative and interdisciplinary competences, which are more and more important in the professional world. Basic knowledge taught in the obligatory modules is combined with specialised, up-to-date knowledge and analytical/ methodical skills taught in a wide range of mandatory and elective modules. This ensures the relevance of the knowledge gained through the programme for the mentioned professional fields.
