    All throughout my studies and professional careers I have always dealt with sustainable economic development as my core principles. This also reflected when my interests revolved around studies related to agriculture. Further, when I received fellowship to continue with same subject from one of the reputed institutions in Germany, I couldn't say no.

    Course Curriculum :

    Master's program deals with economic and agricultural policy relationships between the agricultural and food economy, the environment, and rural areas. Economic growth, sustainability, and social justice are central topics, especially in an international and development-related context.

    Ranked # 1 Agricultural University in Germany, beautiful campus outside the city centre but close and fast connections to the city with part time student opportunities are available, dormitory close to the campus, relevancy to my profile and career goals

    Course Curriculum :

    Good and organized however as it is an agricultural university therefore most of the focus would be on agricultural applications of all the software and programming languages learned. Courses are good, quality of education is high and sufficient sources are provided to students relevant to the module including the excursions to different sites and lab work.

    I was always passionate about Crop sciences. And unfortunately, I could not pursue it at the bachelor's level so I opted for it for the master's degree. Then I came across the University of Hohenheim. I applied to the university with the help of an online application.

    Course Curriculum :

    How the Crop scientists develop cultivation systems that have high yields and are also ecological and sustainable is being taught to me. The program is therefore designed to train us to take on scientific tasks in research institutions and the private sector. I am offered a well-founded methodological and biotechnological education through this curriculum.
