10 - 12 November 2014. Johannesburg, South Africa. The AABS Agribusiness Consortium – AAC and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) Master Class in Agribusiness Management, Southern Africa Edition was held at the Gordon Institute of Business Science, South Africa.

The Master Class in Agribusiness Management provided leaders from across the industry with a unique platform for understanding the core issues and management decisions necessary to develop and execute models of success for Agribusiness.

This unique three day course took participants through a practical exploration of the innovations, trends, and business fundamentals that define the industry now and in the future. Grounded in the AAC’s practical hands-on approach to agribusiness management training and structured in themes of Strategic Thinking, Value Creation and Disciplined Execution, the Agribusiness Master Class delved into the fundamentals of Agribusiness Management and positions participants at the forefront of this fast emerging economic opportunity.

 Included was a field trip where participants toured Greenway Farms (Pty) Ltd, South Africa owned by Mr. Vito Rugani and Mr. Vincent. As part of the welcome to the carrot farm and industry, Mr. Vito Rugani spoke intensely on efficiency as a key to a successful #Agribusiness in Africa. He further challenged participants not to be “professional dreamers”.
