Candidates for registration to this course must first hold at least a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the following areas:

  • Animal science,
  • Agriculture
  • Biotechnology




Master’s degree in the field of animal production management provides graduates with in-depth knowledge in animal breeding and modern animal production technologies, including organization of production processes and farm management. The program focuses on sustainability of animal production connected with animal health and welfare maintenance in relation to their environment, as well as limiting environmental pollution related with animal farming. Studies are geared to enhance practical skills and professional competence required on the international labour market.

Course overview

The course was developed through international cooperation with other European universities of high renown in the area of agricultural sciences, as well as national economic partners, e.g. companies operating in the sector of animal breeding and feed production. The course is based on the module system of classes and lectures improving intensity and efficiency of the teaching/learning process. It is focused on providing students with skills required on the labour market through interaction with highly qualified faculty and professionals during practical classes (student projects, laboratory and field classes) as well as traineeships. By gaining practical experience, students learn to connect scientific principles with the end product. We invite students who are eager to gain knowledge about biostatistics, elements of genetic engineering, genetics of quantitative traits, genomic selection, regulation of alimentary tract functions, technology of feed mix production, reproduction biotechnologies, animal disease prevention, principles of organic animal management and protection of gene resources. Our students will also receive training in management of animal farms and farm work organization, animal production extension services and farm bioassurance.

Career options

Graduates are prepared to undertake jobs in international agricultural enterprises. Positions may include farm managers, animal husbandry assistants, ecological animal breeding advisors, advisors for breeding of wild animals and pets, animal nutrition advisors, etc.
