Specialisation and interdisciplinarity
The already highly competitive field of animal breeding will profit from these young professionals who will be thoroughly trained in the many specialised fields that are open for breeders. Thanks to the structure of EMABG, the focus and contents of its specialised education offer clear profiles to both students and possible employers. This kind of profile is new in European breeding higher education. Also, the interdisciplinary methodological contributions will produce alumni of an as yet highly uncommon combination of knowledge and skills in graduates, which will contribute to their employability, and in the future will help raise synergies between animal and plant breeding. The training of master’s students, who are highly specialised in animal breeding and genetics, meets an existing demand for such experts in the breeding industry.
