The challenges of the food related problems today are not solved by looking isolated on one sector or one aspect of the problem, such as more information or more regulation and legislation. Instead it is necessary to see the problem more holistically and in a systematic way be able to work on different levels of problem analysis and solving. Therefore this master is primarily targeted at the strategic or innovation and development oriented work in all parts of the food sector.
The occupational aim of the master is divided into four domains of the food sector described by the following job functions:
- The Food Industry, Industry Organizations and Retail: Innovative Design, Management and Strategic Planning and Technology Development
