MSc Study Program on

Agricultural and Food Economics (AFECO)

Our Strengths Our Mission Our Students

Will we be able to feed the world in 2050?
How do farmers handle the economic challenges and opportunities of globalized world markets in times of climate change?
How do producers and processors react to permanently increasing requirements of consumers regarding food safety and sustainability?
How can natural resources be preserved by a competition oriented and sustainable agrifood sector?

Agricultural economics provide answers to these and other questions – a growing global population, increasing land use conflicts, changing consumer behaviour and ongoing climate change will demand this type of expertise in the future.

The Master study program „Agricultural and Food Economics“ (AFECO) of the University of Bonn provides you with the necessary knowledge and skills for analysis and development of economic activities and related policies from fork to food, i.e. along the value chain from production on farms, via processing and trading, up to the consumption of food. Active learning by participating in research projects is part of our curriculum. We offer an international program with state-of-the-art teaching which qualifies you for manifold leadership activities in business, public administrations and research institutes. Holders of an AFECO degree find their employment opportunities in service companies like insurances and consulting firms, in business companies, in associations, non-profit organisations and public authorities of the agricultural and food sector, of environmental protection and of development cooperation.
