CABI and the University of Neuchâtel launched the MAS in ICM course in 2015 to help address today’s critical agricultural and environmental challenges by offering a unique higher education programme. The course gives students the opportunity to learn about sound crop management principles and to explore solutions that can be incorporated into practice and policy back home.
The MAS in ICM is aimed at professionals and specialists in crop or environmental management who hold a Master’s degree or Bachelor’s degree plus the equivalent practical experience. Students come from the fields of agriculture, biology, extension, policy, research and teaching.
General topics covered by the course include: soil management, seed selection, crop nutrition, cropping strategies, pest and landscape management, water management, statistics, national and regional agricultural policies, and rural economics.
