Born from the collective will of researchers who are experts in the nutrition of athletic horses, recognised professionals and the Hippolia competitiveness cluster, the MS® - Equine Sciences and Management - MESB - has been cultivating a specific model based on a strong identity and values since its creation in 2007: ambition to contribute to the development of the sector, passion for horses, and an openness to the international market.

The MS® MESB is a reference programme in the field and its mission is to train managers in the equine sector. Offered by l'Institut Agro Dijon, the French national institute of higher education for agronomic, food and environmental sciences, EM Normandy and the University of Kentucky, the Specialized Masters® in equine sciences and management benefits from the experience of each partner and a nationally and internationally recognised research activity.
