Our MSc Food Economics and Marketing programme provides training in applied economics, policy, marketing and research methods in the context of food.
Focusing on how economic and marketing forces influence decisions of producers, processors, retailers, consumers and policy makers along food supply chains at a domestic and international level, this programme provides critical training in:
- applied economics,
- quantitative and qualitative research techniques.
This includes consumers’ food choice and behavioural changes, marketing decisions in food retailing and manufacturing, and policy issues as they relate to international trade, competition, diets and health, food safety, sustainability and quality of food products.This course is also available as PG Diploma and PG Certificate, and can be taken full-time over six months via modular delivery or part-time over two periods of six months.
