The Doctoral Certificate Program in Agricultural Economics offers permanent, structured training of doctoral researchers in the field of agricultural and food economics.

An extensive range of modules provides the theoretical and methodological competencies to efficiently advance your research in agricultural and nutritional sciences topics. The current program provides an overview of upcoming events.
