Abstract

The European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics (EMABG) is an international master program operating on a global scale, with the aim to train experts and future leaders for research and industry. The training and education takes place at six European universities, within four study tracks with carefully designed curricula. One of the central parts of the MSc programme is the integration of teamwork activities and training of transversal skills to increase the employability of the graduates. To achieve this goal several major events are incorporated into the study programme during the entire duration of the two years. Also, strong emphasis is placed on integration of experts from the industry in the form of talks during joint events, internships, and direct work during special courses, as well as the final thesis.
