Study Programme

In the Animals, Society and Business programme, you learn not only everything there is to know about the animals themselves, but also about the world around it. If you love keeping animals and are interested in the entire operational management surrounding the sector, this programme is for you. You won't be disappointed by this challenging combination! During your studies, you will immerse yourself in subjects such as entrepreneurship, marketing, financial management, information and advice, innovation, research, management, animal behaviour, animal welfare and developments in society.

Your professional orientation

You will deal with different themes in set blocks, the exact content of which depends on your interests. Over the course of your studies, you can specialise fully in the track of your choice: you choose your own internships as well as a graduation placement. With a minor of your choice, you can further deepen or broaden your knowledge.
