Agricultural Economics - University of Edinburgh

There are fewer bigger global challenges than feeding the growing human population well, while protecting the natural systems on which we depend. With the world population expected to reach 11 billion by the end of this century and demands on systems already at an all-time high, it is essential that we find new ways to feed the growing population without destroying the planet. This programme applies economic principles to critical topics for developing international agri-food systems. You will develop analytical skills in production and consumption economics, the evaluation of trade and government intervention, advanced modelling and econometrics, and apply them to a range of issues relevant to the production and consumption of food. The focus on quantitative training and on both developed and developing countries provides a perfect grounding for individuals wishing to work for international and national agencies, including the FAO and OECD. It also provides opportunities for working within agri-food and related industries or can provide a platform for further study at postgraduate level.
