Nataliya Hordiychuk, program leader AgriFood MBA in the “Latifundist” interview:
“The program is called AgriFood MBA precisely because in the modern world the industry does not exist on its own, because the companies work in close cooperation with other market participants. Similarly, agricultural production can not exist without its continuation — the food industry. Both Agri and Food penetrate information technology, so IT is also a tangible industry, like marketing and PR, such as finance, logistics, science, media. That is why in the new program we have taken the ecosystem of business as a key principle”.

- Wholistic approach to a strategic management
