Food and Agribusiness
Food and Agribusiness explores how the next wave of innovation in the industry represents the biggest transformation since the industrial revolution. Through case analyses and practical agribusiness scenarios, learners examine global challenges faced within the food and agriculture industries and develop a sound understanding of what it takes to manage an agricultural business.
You’ll investigate how insurance and financing, supply chain management, global food trade, and innovative technologies such as machine learning, sensing, and customer behavioural understanding can improve the efficiencies and cost-effectiveness of food and agribusiness industries (FAEs), and broaden your knowledge and understanding of the global challenges being faced within the food and agriculture industries.
