India’s agrarian economy has been a subject of study for quite some time. But India’s agriculture is still growing. Learning from its peers, Indian agribusiness domain seems to picking up pace. Recently the Indian government signed a memorandum of understanding with the New Zealand authorities to collaborate in the domain of agribusiness. The government of India is keen to provide a fertile ground for India’s agribusiness sector to grow. The collaboration with New Zealand involves knowledge sharing, technology sharing and seeking expert opinion as and when applicable. These moves are indicative of the gradual growth that the agribusiness sector is witnessing.
Poised to unveil an all new self, the agribusiness domain offers a plethora of opportunities. But there is a severe talent crunch that the agriculture industry faces. However, the state of the art programs like MBA in Agribusiness provided by SIIB is addressing this dearth of talent to quite an extent. With students being given practical exposure and theoretical training, their grooming to become successful agribusiness managers is a holistic training process. Given the exponential pace at which the agribusiness sector in India is progressing, it is not long before the MBA’s start to reap great benefits.
