How can we preserve natural resources through a competitive and sustainable agricultural and food sector? Agricultural economics holds the key. With a growing world population, increasing land use conflicts, changing consumer behavior, and advancing climate change, expertise in this field is crucial.

This education prepares them to make informed decisions that benefit both the economy and the environment. By studying at the University of Bonn, students gain the tools to contribute to a sustainable future.
