Panoramica

The Master’s Degree Course in Agri-food sustainability provides a solid preparation in agricultural sciences and technologies, through a multidisciplinary vision, aimed at achieving an high production, attentive to the health of environment, agricultural producers and consumers, focusing on sustainability (one health).

The course includes experimental and demonstrative activities held in the agricultural lands owned by the University and through various projects of the Lombardy Region with partner agricultural companies, both conventional and organic.

The graduate will therefore be able to plan and manage agricultural production (in particular the quality of supply chains), acquiring a broad agro-ecological knowledge that includes food market, developing and managing innovation of companies and agricultural supply chains; as well as taking into account post-production and the agri-food products’ impact on human health.

The formal approval of this program by the Italian Ministry of Education is expected by June 2022.
