Digital Mini-MBA Program readiness (Fresh graduates and early professionals) 

A significant number of students struggle to complete the higher/executive education programs they enroll for. Several others struggle to realise the outcomes they expected out of the education programs. In both instances the learner/student loses significant time and monetary resources. Primary reasons we have identified for poor outcomes with further education enrollments for graduates are:

  1. Lack of support to understand the sector and the opportunities the sector presents
  2. Lack of support to ask the right questions around assessing the value of the program for their specific situation/context
  3. Lack of real learning experience of the model prior to the enrollment

Digital School of Food & Agriculture “Education Readiness Posts” are designed to help students and professionals/entrepreneurs assess the relevance of a specific program type for their context. If you are a graduate in any food & agribusiness program and considering the Mini-MBA in Food & Agribusiness Leadership you should be able to answer these questions positively to be able to feel ready for this program: I have a basic understanding of the agribusiness value chain very well

  1. I have a basic understanding of the opportunity landscape within the food & agribusiness sector
  2. I have a basic understanding of the business and policy challenges within the value chains i wish to develop my career/business 
  3. I have a good understanding of what i need to learn to be able to get to the right career/business outcome
  4. I am very confident that the digital learning model will work for me
