2014-03-13 08:10:20 - Food and Agribusiness Management Program from Cornell University and Sathguru is organized annually to keep pace with the dynamically changing agri business sector worldwide.
Since 2000, Cornell University and Sathguru, have been working together to deliver the flagship Food and Agri-Business Management Program (AMP) for senior managers and policy makers in the food and agri-business sector. The unique executive education program, a one of its kind annual event is designed to provide participants with a deep insight into current best practices in agriculture and food production with intensive exposure to new and successful enterprise models that effectively combine cutting edge technologies with traditional practices. While AMP was specifically customized to cater to local enterprises seeking new horizons for growth and development, it has been constantly updated over the years based on current socio-economic trends and technology advances. The program caters to corporate leaders, large
firms intending to expand and diversify, small and medium entrepreneurs and policy planners with a unique insight into current trends in a multi-faceted industry comprising input providers, farm solutions providers, value chain service providers and international commodity entities.
AMP 2014, the fifteenth since its inception at the dawn of the century, will be held at the Cornell University campus at Ithaca, NY from 22 July to 1 August, 2014. Guided by an internationally acclaimed faculty of academicians, industry leaders and policy heads, the participants will discuss the prospects of efficient technology utilization to protect farm level competitiveness and value chain challenges, identify strategic trends in consumer behavior and update themselves on regulatory challenges in a rapidly globalizing economic environment. The participants will also deliberate on the challenges in exploring opportunities in uncertain environments.
Since 2000, over 500 participants from 20 countries comprising managers from international corporations, domestic firms, emerging high growth entities and international development organizations and policy planners have benefited from AMP and have gone on to pioneer projects set to herald a new dawn of health, security and prosperity.
