Overview of the MBA in Agricultural Management and Agribusiness

The MBA in Agricultural Management & Agribusiness has been designed in
order to provide the necessary knowledge and expertise to professionals,
managers and leaders of the agricultural sector. The emphasis is on agricultural
management in an international and local setting and the program draws on an
an emerging body of knowledge and evidence to allow comparisons across different
countries.

The contemporary global agricultural environment envisages a restructured
farming system taking the lead in maintaining and improving agricultural
methods. This policy agenda emphasizes strongly the need for good leadership,
and within that requires the development of a vision and of practices in
agricultural management, appropriate for the organization of farming services for
the 21st century. The MBA is developed in order to assist the achievement of that
aim. It builds on the research and teaching strengths so as to ensure that
graduates will be able to administer agricultural services on the basis of a sound
understanding of theories and practices of management.

This course focuses on the provision of a multidisciplinary, critically analytical and
a practice-based approach to the main challenges and issues in agricultural
management, planning, and policy, which face the providers of farming and
farming-related services.

The program is suitable for all agricultural professionals, planners, senior and mid
– level managers working in or having responsibility for the management of
farming organizations and agricultural systems.
