The Marketing Management major aims at meeting the current and future needs of companies, public authorities and research laboratories by training future managers and scientists benefiting from French and European expertise in the fields of :
⦁    economic and financial themes in agriculture
⦁    business development, innovation and entrepreneurship
⦁    communication and marketing

The objective of the course is to have a general overview of the topic, from consumer behavior and market research to digital communication and crisis management.

Although this general approach is of course taught through its technical and scientific aspects, it is crucial to include economic, sociological and ethical aspects to comprehend the notion of management and communication.

The other general objectives of the course are to give students:
⦁    an international view of the issue of agricultural trade and finance, highlighting certain national and/or regional particularities;
⦁    the necessary tools to manage business development and communication;
⦁    the necessary tools to manage agricultural trade, from purchase and procurement to industrial marketing and consumer behavior;
