Dairy processing is a growing industry worldwide with increasingly complex global supply chains. Scientific and technological advances offer new approaches to dairy processing and product formulation. In this dynamic context, technology management plays a key role in enhancing the quality, efficiency, food safety, traceability and sustainability of dairy products across the globe. The Master of Dairy Technology Management prepares you for a career in this dynamic field through its focus on applications of scientific, economic and business management knowledge to technology management decisions in the dairy processing industry globally.

The MDTM deepens your scientific knowledge of dairy processing and develops skills for operations management and technology assessment in the global dairy sector. Full-time students complete the program in one year/three terms. The first term emphasizes the science foundations of dairy products and processing; the second term expands on dairy processing operations and technology assessment. The program concludes with a project in the third term. Part-time admission is also available.
