At EXPO, specifically in the Coffee Cluster pavilion, the Class of 2015 gave presentations of each module of the didactic program that composes the Master, covering the entire coffee chain from a scientific as well as from an economic point of view.

“Why did I decide to do this master? Working on a coffee plantation, I always thought I needed to know more about the economics part of the coffee sector. I needed to leave the plantation to fully understand the sector in order to understand also how the system works in the consuming countries”.

- Bruno Gonçalves Ribeiro

“I would definitely recommend this Master to all those people who work in the economic side of the sector. It is so important to know also the scientific part that is behind the world of coffee. This knowledge makes our work easier by understanding what is happening both in the coffee plantations as well as in the industrial sector. There is a lot more science involved than you can imagine”.

- Iliana Delgado Chegwin
