Sustainable Food Supply Chains
Online Mini-MBA Programme
A certificated programme brought to you in partnership:
“Companies are increasingly taking actions that result in better social, economic and environmental impacts because society expects this and because there are business benefits to doing so.”
– United Nations report on Supply Chain Sustainability
Businesses across the entire food chain are seeking professional talent that is equipped to design and deliver on their supply chain sustainability mandate; increasingly that they understand that this is a business and environmental necessity.
Do your staff have the skills and knowledge to contribute to this mandate?
If not, this Mini-MBA is the perfect development for your business.
Agribusiness Academy and Business School Netherlands come together to offer this unique certificate 6-month Mini-MBA for professionals with more than 2 years of work experience within the food and agribusiness supply chains.
Business School Netherlands and Agribusiness Academy have had more than 2 years of collaboration in delivering well-received action learning programmes on food security management for students from diverse parts of the world.
We are able to start your staff members on this program at any time throughout the year.
The cost of the Mini-MBA programme is £1500 / $2000 / €1700 per staff member (excluding taxes). We are currently working with cohorts of 15+ learners, creating a closed, collaborative learning environment for your staff to learn, interact and develop their skills and your business, together.
The Mini-MBA contain six modules, each delivered over one month. Click into a module to explore the learning objectives.
During the first month, learners are set a practical project by your business (decided upon with the guidance of Agribusiness Academy); this would be a personalized assignment based on the staff member’s job role and ambition. Each subsequent month, they will apply the tools, frameworks and learning from each module to the practical project. They will be supported in this with 1-to-1 mentoring sessions each month.
In addition, each module will contain the following elements:
The program will require 10-15 hours of learning per month which could be a contracted hours, home study or a mix of both.
Throughout the program, your staff will work out innovative solutions to the pressing supply chain and sustainability challenges of your business. Discussion forums will be open and active every day during the six month period – these are exclusive to your staff only, unless a wider context is sought. Agribusiness Academy mentors and learning managers are always there to support.
