The MMA program is designed to equip agribusiness professionals with the right management skills, knowledge, values and attitudes necessary to transform the agricultural sector in Kenya and beyond.
Since the course is the first of its kind in the region; top market leaders and various stakeholders from the sector shall grace the inaugural ceremony. The Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Hon. Willy Bett will be the Chief Guest for the Inaugural lecture whose theme is: ‘Striving Towards Food Security: The role of Innovation and Leadership.’
Agriculture is one of the leading economic boosters in Kenya. Being a core sector in the market, it is crucial that existing and potential farmers invest in skills that will take their business to the next level and therefore compete effectively in the international market. Today, more than ever it has become crucial to deliberate on matters of food security and innovation in the Agricultural sector. Agribusiness ventures and companies should be managed sustainably, policies that favor innovation, trade and production should be implemented. Solutions to climate change should be developed, and all this is to create an environment conducive for Africa to feed the world.
