Economic Issues in the Global Animal Health Industry (AGEC 780)
Economic Issues in the Global Animal Health Industry (AGEC 780) explores the different health and policy issues in the animal health and companion animal industry to provide practitioners with the tools to develop the appropriate responses to these issues to ensure sustainable superior performance.
These conversations are important because of the increasing trade in animal and livestock products and the sanitary and health risks they present, the changing regulatory environments as incomes increase around the world, and the increasing number of companies operating in multiple countries under multiple regulatory regimes.
