Lagos Business School (LBS), under the platform of the Association of African Business Schools (AABS) Agribusiness Consortium, will in 2013 offer agribusiness management programmes as part of its executive education programmes.
The Agribusiness Consortium was established by AABS to develop and deliver agribusiness management training programmes backed by contextual research.
Speaking about the new programme, Dean of LBS and Chairperson of AABS, Dr. Enase Okonedo, said “the agricultural sector is so critical to Africa’s growth, but has received scant attention”.
The agribusiness management programme aims to impact small-holder farmers who form the bulk of agricultural activity in Africa by training and supporting the managers who work with these small-holders through their organisations and projects. The programme will also impart business, management and leadership skills to stakeholders in the agribusiness sector.
