Corso di Economics and Management of Sustainable Food Environment - Università degli Studi di Parma
The Second-cycle Degree Course (LM) in Economics and Management of Sustainable Food Systems (Food Quality-FQ), promoted by the Department of Economics and Management in collaboration with the Department of Food and Drug of the University of Parma, is a multidisciplinary project that was set up as a collaborative platform to promote dialogue between economic-managerial culture and the disciplines related to the social sciences of gastronomy.
The Course aims to train professionals with interdisciplinary skills that combine theoretical and empirical knowledge of a cultural, as well as economic-managerial nature of the agri-food system, with technological and gastronomic skills related to the enhancement of food in a strict logic of environmental sustainability. This is a continuation of the cultural pathway already started in the First-cycle degree L-18 (Food System: Sustainability, Management and Technology) and L-26 (Gastronomic Sciences) at the University of Parma.
The training pathway focuses on subjects from different subject areas that include: the disciplines of an economic-business, sociological and commodity nature, in order to understand and be able to apply economic theories and forms of management of agri-food enterprises in the procurement, production, processing, marketing and promotion phases of food production and environmental systems.
