The aim of the Master 2 Management of territories and local development - Pathway "Agricultural management and territories" is to train students for works in agricultural production systems management, taking account of the specific characteristics of territories with a both technical and economic approach. To this end, the training offers both a learning of the theoretical and practical tools and the acquisition of professional experience (individual and collective internships), thus enabling students to be in contact with the local actors and the realities on the ground so as to be operational by the end of the training.

The training enables to acquire:

  • Knowledge: Analysis of the technical and economic functioning of a farm and of an farming region,
  • Know-how: Implementation of decision-making methods, preliminary analysis and strategic steering in a consultancy process at an individual or collective level. Elaboration of optimization models for the technical and production choices made in the farm and at the regional level. Linking of bio-physical and economical models for decision-making in the field of natural resources management and diffuse pollution management in agriculture,
  • Personal skills: Work in multidisciplinary teams, conciliation of technical and socio-economic aspects.

The first part is devoted to the theoretical and practical learning of the various methods and tools. It allows students to be placed regularly in real life/ real work situations: case studies, collective field works, and applications.

The second part is dedicated to an individual work including a practical internship of at least 3 months leading to the writing and the defence of a Master’s thesis or a research paper.

The training provides students with skills to work as research analysts in agricultural development organizations and among the actors of the agricultural production in the territories. This training also aims to teach economists, geographers and engineers how to work together by providing them the common language needed.
