The MFRE is a unique one-year professional masters program combining economics, policy and business seen from an agriculture, food, natural resources and environmental perspective. The program has three terms: the first two comprise rigorous courses in multiple specialization areas; in the third one, you will enhance and consolidate your MFRE experience through a summer graduating project. This project can take the form of research, a consultancy project or an internship.
