Business Management Modules
It is widely recognized in Uzbekistan that improving the efficiency and effectiveness of agri-food supply chains is key to unlocking the potential of the sector to generate sustainable economic growth. Professionals who can manage products and services from production to delivery, on time and on budget, are thus central to the success of the agri-food business sector. This means that students completing this pathway will be in high demand for roles in the public, private and third sectors with competitive salaries and excellent prospects for career progression.
This innovative degree programme with pathway options prepares students to make a difference in the food and agri-supply chain sector by studying the economics, logistics, food safety, management and technology that underpin modern business management, performance improvement, safety and quality control.
The programmes aim to develop an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to ideas and issues, enabling successful graduates to contribute proactively across the sector. This could be in the world of private business, in government, or ‘third’ sector organisations, or in the main business-related professions such as banking and finance. Opportunities will also exist for those who seek consultancy or wish to contribute to the wider society within which businesses operate.
Throughout the programme, there will be engagement with the ways in which the agri-food sector can support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and UN Global Compact, as well as how businesses can promote equality, diversity and inclusion.
The business has a critical role in achieving these goals and outcomes, and as future leaders of the agri-food economy, we believe that our students should have the opportunity to understand the benefits to businesses that they provide.
These goals and outcomes are mapped to our modules to ensure that at each stage of the programme we are identifying how they can be developed as part of business strategy.
