In­ter­na­tio­nal Food Busi­ness and Con­su­mer Stu­dies (Master)

Studierende auf dem Campus Witzenhausen

The politics of food in society, involving manufacturers, retailers, consumers and health professionals, are complex and continually evolving. This programme enables its students to take on responsible tasks in national and international enterprises in the food business, as well as in food certification organisations.

In particular, they are qualified to manage complex processes in enterprises in food industries and food trade as well as farms to develop and market food products and related services according to the needs of different consumer groups. The graduates, with their flexibility of thinking and wide range of knowledge and skills, are proving increasingly attractive to employers. Graduates are qualified for further postgraduate studies, esp. PhD programmes. The MSc International Food Business and Consumer Studies is a joint venture of two German Universities: The University of Kassel in Witzenhausen (Organic Agricultural Sciences) and the University of Applied Sciences Fulda (Nutritional, Food and Consumer Sciences).
