How can natural resources be preserved by a competitive and sustainable agri-food sector? The field of agricultural economics focuses on answering this question among others, with issues such as a growing global population, increasing land use conflicts, changing consumer behavior and progressing climate change demanding answers from experts in this field.

The Master of Science degree program in Agricultural and Food Economics (AFECO) at the University of Bonn equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to analyze and further develop economic activities. This includes examining associated politics from the forklift to the final food product, i.e. along the entire food value chain from farming to processing, sale and consumption. The curriculum stipulates active learning through participation in research projects. This international program using state-of-the-art teaching methods qualifies graduates for diverse managing roles in private businesses, public administration and research institutions.

Consultancies and insurers, private businesses, associations, non-profit organizations, agricultural and food authorities, environmental protection, development cooperation
