International Farm Management
The BSc in International Farm Management is a course developed for students who are interested in the development and growth of plants, flowers and animals.
It is a unique study programme, where students learn about food and agri-business, with focus on the development of craftsmanship (in animals, plants, flowers, on the job and in commercial companies), and entrepreneurship in an international context.
A study week is a combination of “learning on the job” at partner companies and “learning the theory” at HAS University of Applied Sciences. That means students learn in class as well as on the job and will have the opportunity to network with successful entrepreneurs who will share their wealth of experiences.
The combination of the differentiating type of education and the interesting content of the course, makes studying International Farm Management challenging, exciting, and fun.
The International Farm Management develops student's knowledge and skills in Business and Management, with special attention to:
- Plants, animals and flowers
- International business and export
Students will also have a chance to apply their knowledge in practice.
In the first year, students focus on primary production. In the second year, the focus is on business and management. In the third year students have the opportunity to apply the theory and practical experience gained in the first two years in an internship in the Netherlands and also abroad. In the final fourth year, students specialise in a subject of their choice.
There is plenty of work in Holland and abroad. A graduate of IFM will be an internationally-orientated ‘green’ business professional. After graduation students will have careers in fields that fit their talents and ambition. They will make a significant contribution to society and agri-business worldwide. For example to having a role in turning society into a bio-based society, and facing the challenge of feeding 9 billion people.
