AABS Agribusiness Consortium

 

 

The AABS Agribusiness Consortium (AAC) is an initiative of the Association of African Business Schools (AABS), with the purpose of championing the cause of Agribusiness Management Education in Africa. Its goal is to provide high quality business, management and leadership education to a range of stakeholders in the Agricultural Development sector. The establishment of the AAC is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Core Activities

The goal of the project is to provide high quality business, management and leadership education to a range of stakeholders in the Agricultural Development Sector including Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grantee organizations, other development organizations, farmer organizations, agribusiness entities, private sector, entrepreneurs and government agencies.

·  The AAC will develop Agribusiness management training programs backed by appropriate contextual research, input from practitioners and renowned experts in the sector and benchmarked to global standards.

·  The AAC will deliver pilot programs in select locations across Africa, starting with Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania.

·  The AAC will forge a network that serves as a platform for scaling training programs and nurturing collaboration, partnerships and change projects with relevant stakeholders in the sector.

Strategic Vision

The AAC aims to strengthen the capacity of African Business Schools to offer Agribusiness management training programs and develop the business, management and leadership skills of actors in the sector.  We believe that now is the time to unlock the potential of African Agriculture; to transform the sector from just a focus on Agriculture to the value added approach of Agribusiness and enhance the competitiveness of the sector.  Skilled human capital will drive this transformation.
