Programme profile

Every year thousands of new products will enter the market and end up in stores all over the world. The industry needs well organised companies who are international orientated, innovative, concerned with international marketing and logistics and have a strong and secure quality approach. It is these skills that you will acquire on this programme.

CAH Vilentum University of Applied Sciences (CAH DUAS) is partnering with Dalhousie University in Canada to offer this double degree programme. Year one and two are offered on the CAH campus, with year three offered in Canada, and year four again on the CAH campus. This programme requires a minimum of one year of international study and two work terms - one in north America and one in Europe.

Uniquely, the programme begins with a ten day orientation in Iceland, a neutral place between Canada and the Netherlands.

After successfully completing this programme, graduates will receive a degree in Agribusiness and Business Administration (from CAH Vilentum) and a Bachelor in Agribusiness (from Dalhousie University).

Note: 1st May deadline is the 'preferred' deadline for this programme. Some later applications may be accepted.
