Resonating the words of Gunner Myrdal, Nobel Laureate in Economics that it is in the agribusiness sector that the battle for long-term economic development will be won or lost, Strathmore Business School (SBS) has partnered with the African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE) to pilot the Masters in Agribusiness Management.

This partnership will seek to effect the admission of the pioneering class in September 2015.

“Our objective is to flood the African market with qualified graduates in the agribusiness sector whose strong ethical impetus will seek to transform this sector for the benefit of the people “said Dr. Njenga during the signing ceremony.

The partnership will seek to support the graduates undertaking the course by providing funding for their research in addition to exchange programs that will seek to expose them to world-class agricultural practices.

ANAFE has been officially mandated to drive curriculum reforms in agricultural education in Africa and SBS will be the first institution in Kenya to pilot the Masters in Agribusiness program.

“We are excited to be part of such a reputable institution whose high quality level of education is transforming Africa” said Dr. Assietou Yaye, the Executive Secretary of ANAFE.

The Centre for Agribusiness Management will be launching the Masters in Agribusiness Management next year in January in preparation for the first graduate class in September 2015.
