The strategic importance of the sector and the highly competitive economic environment for agrifood businesses imply an interpretation that mirrors the specificity of production, distribution, trade, and consumption. The master program ECONOMICS AND ADMINISTRATION OF AGRIFOOD BUSINESSES addresses this challenge through an interdisciplinary curriculum, designed in a way that blends courses in business and marketing with specific food and agricultural knowledge.
Our approach to teaching is to give students a diverse environment with many learning alternatives. This includes learning through games, group work, and even activities like debates in addition to more traditional lectures. Students learn how to manage a business, analyse the agribusiness value chain from farm to fork, and acquire the essential knowledge of products, inside as well as outside of the classroom.
Although the curriculum arises from an agricultural base, its applications are broad enough to apply to non agricultural business as well.

Also, many of our recent graduates have chosen to continue the research through doctoral studies.
The exceptional values of the rural areas represent for Romania a great opportunity for generating cultural, social and economic benefits.
