Climate change and the management of natural resources, in particular water, particularly affect the agricultural sector, posing a challenge for its sustainable management. With globalisation, companies must make a major effort in terms of efficiency, differentiation and innovation in order to be competitive. This means adapting their structures, improving their position in the value chain and adopting modern management, distribution and marketing techniques. Internationally, foreign trade and foreign direct investment offer opportunities for growth. For developing countries, it is necessary to consider the role of cooperation and agricultural and food safety policies.

The analysis and research techniques of economics and social sciences provide tools to make it easier for the agrifood sector and the environment to fulfil their private and social functions.


The Master has a duration of one course (60ECTS) divided into two semesters. From September to January (A), and from February to May (B). In addition, there are professional internship (approximately 6 weeks, part-time) and the master's thesis (TFM).

In the first semester, the student will receive all the necessary knowledge so that in semester B they can apply it and develop, under teaching supervision, professional projects related to the two main areas on which the master's degree focuses: Agri-Food Business Management and Agri-Food Economics and Policy and enviroment.
