Course leader Dr Dagmar Ridder was interviewed recently for Agrarzeitung, a German-based newspaper reporting on the latest news in the agrarian sector. Dagmar spoke about the new MSc International Agribusiness programme which will be taught at GISMA’s Hannover campus. She explained who the programme is for, what is unique about studying at GISMA and how the institution’s international focus will benefit students.
The masters in agribusiness programme will have its first intake of students in April 2020. Dagmar encouraged those with ‘ambitious personalities’ to apply, particularly those interested in taking on ‘challenges in management’. She was incredibly optimistic about the future of the agribusiness sector stating that the following ‘occupational fields’ will be opening up: agricultural trade, marketing, purchasing and sales.
In addition, the interview gave Dagmar the opportunity to promote the course stating: ‘our graduates should start as well-trained generalists who are familiar with all areas along the value-added chain’. The MSc programme aims to support individuals in becoming experts in the international food and agribusiness sector.
When asked what differentiated GISMA from other business schools, Dagmar replied ‘we explicitly focus on internationality and interculturalism’, which is important particularly in the agribusiness sector. She explained: ‘the agri-food industry operates internationally. Even small and medium-sized companies operate on the world market’. Dagmar explored some of the benefits of studying with GISMA and showcased the MSc in order to encourage students to join the programme.
