All the ingredients for a worthwhile collaboration
The UCD Masters in Food Business Strategy prepares students for the uniquely challenging environment within which Irish agrifood businesses operate. Offered jointly by the School of Agriculture and Food Science, UCD and the Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, UCD, students receive training in business concepts and practice as well as in industry-specific areas such as food policy and agri-economics.
The course had its first intake in 2014 as the world began to recover from the global financial crash, according to programme director Dr James Breen. “We are now heading into our ninth year,” he says. “The programme is built on the strengths of both schools.
