Kurze Studiengangsbeschreibung

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.

Kurze Hochschulbeschreibung

Tradition und Modernität - das sind in Bonn keine Gegensätze. Hier forscht und lernt es sich schon seit zwei Jahrhunderten besonders gut: Weltweit anerkannte Spitzenforschung und ein historisches Ambiente prägen das Bild der Bonner Universität, die 1818 von König Friedrich-Wilhelm III. von Preußen gegründet wurde. Mit fast 32.000 Studierenden, 550 Professoren und 5.500 Beschäftigten ist sie heute eine moderne Forschungsuniversität mit internationaler Strahlkraft.

Bestmögliche Bedingungen für exzellente Forschung zu schaffen, ist ein erklärtes Ziel der Bonner Uni, und das trägt Früchte: Bonn ist derzeit die einzige deutsche Uni, die in den vergangenen 25 Jahren gleich zwei Nobelpreisträger hervorgebracht hat:Wolfgang Paul, Physik 1989, und Reinhard Selten, Ökonomie 1994.

The University of Bonn was founded almost 200 years ago and is considered to be one of Germany's and indeed Europe's most important institutes of higher education. As home of learning to over 34,000 students, we enjoy an outstanding reputation both at home and abroad.

The University of Bonn is one of the world's leading research based Universities and therefore it is no surprise that we operate on an international level. We particularly specialize in the fields of research and teaching and this has led to our evolving into the position of a truly prominent international institution.
