    Programme Description

    Sooner or later - such as when you find yourself in Holland, buying a batch of Kenyan roses that has to be at a New York flower market tomorrow, you realise that the world is your workplace! A fast and dynamic world, where expertise, entrepreneurial spirit and communication skills are essential.

    The Netherlands is a leading player in international agricultural trade - not just in foodstuffs, but also in timber and ornamental plants. There are excellent job opportunities with the larger traders, and also as an independent. The only prerequisites are a thorough knowledge of the entire chain from producer to consumer: knowledge of import and export, production and innovation, trade and logistics, marketing and quality management, transport and storage.

    For the expertise and skills that bring success in this exciting world, look no further than Van Hall Larenstein. We provide placements where you´ll gain practical experience in industry or a trading house, at a processor or transporters. Support subjects will add depth, ensuring you develop the social and communication skills that round off your performance as a professional.

    The Bachelor´s programme in Agribusiness and Business Administration was developed to meet the demand for graduates who can back up product knowledge with marketing skills - for traders with green fingers! Does the description fit you? Then you could make the grade as a purchaser for an international firm, or managing retail marketing for a cheese producer or fruit and vegetable supplier. Or how would you fancy life as import manager in the flower trade, travelling the world to find new markets and consolidate your customer base?

    • International Agribusiness and Trade (4 years Bachelor, 2 years Final Phase Bachelor)

    You will be following objective specific courses, doing practical periods and preparing an exciting graduation assignment. In the third or fourth year you will make a choice out of many available minors. A minor is actually a short course of your own choice. It can be specialistic or broad, in which case it can add to your interests and talents.

    The programme is competency based: each theoretical subject supports workgroup situations in which students tackle practical problems and explore workable solutions. This means that you will be active from day one, learning to work independently as you collaborate with others. The programme culminates in practical placements and a thesis project conducted in an international setting.
