Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Students in the Food Production Management programme offered by Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore  learn the innovative principles and techniques of agriculture, from the fields to the table, to produce safe, sustainable and high quality food. Focus will be on the supply chains of dairy, cured meats, viticulture, cereals and horticultural produce. In particular, high quality “Made in Italy” products value chains are used as study cases. 

The competences acquired on the degree can be applied to:

  • the production, quality and sanitation in ‘made in Italy” husbandry;
  • the transformation and conservation techniques of plant and animal products;
  • food safety and legislation;
  • the impact on environmental sustainability;
  • aspects relating to the economic valorisation of agri-food products, with particular emphasis on those of Italian tradition and to the management of the enterprises.

It is the first degree programme of this kind in Italy entirely focused on agri-food sustainability and its economic and environmental components.

Career Opportunities

The programme provides knowledge and skills for students aiming at managing the different levels of the agri-food chains (input supplying companies, farms, food processors, traders and retailers, support organizations) particularly in those situations where interactions along the value chains represent a success factor for improving and maintaining products’ quality, sustainability and, above all, market performance. This programme gives access to graduate programmes: for example our Master of Science in Agricultural and Food Economics, or a Master in Viticulture and Enology.
