Master of Global Food and Agricultural Business

As the demand for food and water grows as the global population heads towards 9 billion by 2050, the basic resources needed to produce it fall under threat. We need to ensure that our economic, public and environmental health can cope with these rising demands.

Why not be part of the solution and something bigger? The Master of Global Food and Agricultural Business will allow you to contribute to solving these critical issues affecting the security of our food and resource systems.

Base yourself in Australia’s agricultural hub, alongside world-class researchers, primary producers, and agribusiness leaders, and discover the economic, policy, environmental and social issues affecting agribusinesses and global food systems.
