Course Description

Designed to equip postgraduate learners with the aptitude and mentality to excel, the coursework-based MSc Food Science with Business Management adopts an interdisciplinary approach that addresses present – and future – problems in the multi-billion-dollar food industry. Addressing pertinent aspects of the all-important sector like food production, analyses, quality and safety; the programme also exposes learners to management, finance, marketing and entrepreneurship.

This dual-pronged approach equips learners with the best of both worlds – the theoretical and technical mastery required to navigate the industry's challenges, as wellas the business sense to tell the difference between a fleeting fad and a genuine innovation. With this in mind, graduates can look forward to play key roles from the research lab to the boardroom as they seek to manage – and improve – the domestic and international food supply chain.
