The MSc Food Economics and Marketing is a programme which provides critical training in applied economics, marketing, and quantitative and qualitative research techniques.
You will develop an understanding of economic and marketing aspects of food, including consumers’ decisions, globalisation in food retailing and manufacturing, and policy issues, and acquire the professional skills to work for world organisations such as the EU and Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), NGOs, international food companies and consulting companies.
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.
You are normally required to have a good first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). An intermediate knowledge of microeconomics and quantitative methods is required, but strong applicants with little or no prior training in economics may be admitted provided they attend a pre-sessional course.
