Ghana: Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Programme

Hon. Clement Kofi Humado
Minister for Food and Agriculture
of Ghana cited a PPP like the
Sorghum Value Chain Development
Project which was being sponsored
by the European Cooperative for
Rural Development with Guinness
Ghana Breweries Ltd (GGBL) as the
Private Sector and TechnoServe as
the implementing partner. He said
the overall goal was to develop a
stable and high-quality sorghum
supply chain that would increase
incomes of farmers and enable
GGBL to substitute imported grains
with locally produced sorghum.
15 April 2003. Accra, Ghana. Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Programme To Strengthen Skills And Competencies Of Ghanaian Agribusiness Professionals. The Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) are partnering together to launch a four-week Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Programme, from April 15-May 10, 2013.
Dr Joseph Taabazuing, 
Course Co-ordinator

The four-week long programme will use conventional learning techniques for principles of good business practice and case studies as problem-solving tool. The curriculum comprises 11 modules covering all aspects of modern management techniques and practices.

It includes five case studies of local agribusiness firms in Ghana to bring location-specific content into the course curriculum, and includes field trips and class projects to enable participants gain practical experience in managing agribusiness.

The University of Ghana, The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore helped with curriculum development and programme delivery. The program is residential, with participants staying at the Executive Conference Center at the campus of GIMPA.

The sponsors of the program believe that good practice in agribusiness is vital for an efficient commercial agriculture and an efficient functioning of the food and fibre sector. It is the hope of the sponsors that the program will contribute to successful implementation of the Food and Agriculture Sector Development Policy and the Medium-Term Agriculture Sector Investment Plan of the Government of Ghana.
