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:
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.
