Collaboration between the University of Adelaide and some of Australia’s largest agribusinesses has resulted in a new, business-focused Master of Agribusiness program, which is designed to cultivate the industry’s next generation of leaders. Valued at more than $430 billion annually, agribusiness is one of Australia’s most important industry sectors.
“ This is a key industry for our nation, employing an estimated 1.4 million Australians. Agribusinesses are currently seeking thousands of graduates to fill demand for agricultural roles – for every graduate there’s an estimated six positions available. ” Professor Wendy Umberger, Director of the Centre for Global Food and Resources at the University of Adelaide.
The new Master of Agribusiness will enable students to develop the skills necessary for agribusiness leadership, management decision making, policy analysis and problem solving, all within an increasingly complex, ever-changing global marketplace.
An article about the new Master of Agribusiness program was also published in the Advertiser today, which can be accessed here.
