How can natural resources be preserved through a competitive and sustainable agri-food sector? Agricultural economics provides answers to these and other questions - a growing world population, increasing land use conflicts, changing consumer behavior and advancing climate change will require this type of expertise in the future.

The Master’s degree in Agricultural and Food Economics (AFECO) at the University of Bonn provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to analyze and develop economic activities. The associated policies from forklifts to food are also considered, ie along the value chain from production on the farm through processing and trading to the consumption of food. Active learning through participation in research projects is part of the curriculum. The international program with state-of-the-art teaching qualifies graduates for a wide range of management tasks in business, administration and research institutions.
