MFRE Speaker Series

The MFRE program offers two speaker series. Both are open to the public.

The MFRE Food & Agribusiness Speaker Series series provides students with the opportunity to interact with key industry experts from the food and agribusiness sector and hear them speak about their company, food & agribusiness expertise, industry opportunities & trends and the challenges running an Agri-Food entrepreneurial business. The speaker series is part of the professional development program in the Master in Food and Resource Economics Program.

MFRE Resource & Environment Speaker Series is a part of the professional development program in the Master in Food and Resource Economics (MFRE) Program. It provides an opportunity to interact with a range of people either influencing environmental policy, or shaping the natural environment through their activities. A typical list includes: government officials, industry leaders, pioneers in resource management, non-governmental organizations, and even academics. The series is designed to be a glimpse into the complexities of ‘real’ world environmental economics and policy.
