Program Description

MSc in Rural Development and Agrobusiness

Szent István University

Objectives of the study program:

The program - based on agricultural, economic, management and rural sociology studies – focuses primarily on the understanding of the current problems of sustainable development and rural regions, the cooperation in the possible directions of development, the preparation of actual development projects, as well as the management and monitoring of project implementation. The training also covers the questions of loss minimization after harvests, development and management of local markets, as well as logistics management and warehousing. The most special feature of the Rural Development Engineer course is the organization of frequent study trips. “Learning by Seeing” is stressed through the visits to different scales of farms, municipalities and rural development agencies and projects. The students can also experience the European identity during study tours to the European Union institutions in Brussels and to our partner universities in neighboring Slovakia and Romania. The wide range of management and rural development skills enable the graduates to pursue different careers and adapt their knowledge to different conditions in their home countries.
