Course Details

The Department of Food Business and Development offers a full-time MSc in Food Business which is ideally suited to graduates interested in pursuing a career in strategic management or marketing in the food sector. The needs of the food sector in the future involve the development of an efficient and responsive food chain (from farm to processor to consumer) in which market changes are reconciled with strategic and production decisions along all stages of the food business chain.

On successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

- evaluate current food consumer and food industry trends, policy issues and drivers and strategies impacting on the evolving food supply chain
- design and implement innovative marketing strategies for competitive markets
- evaluate the role of market orientation and strategic marketing in new product success
- identify the ethical, regulatory and environmental responsibilities of modern food enterprises
- evaluate your personal and employment skills development as a result of working in some facet of the food supply chain
- apply new research techniques to new marketing situations
- analyse the research process and its key components and design a piece of research to answer a specific research question

Format

The course is divided into two parts. You will complete modules to a total of 60 credits in Part I (year 1). You must undertake a food industry-centred research project after the end of Part I university examinations. In Part II (year 2) of the course you will submit a report on your food industry-centred research project and a dissertation on a research project.

Assessment

Various methods of assessment are used, depending on the chosen modules.
