Post Graduate Programme In Food and Agri-Business Management (PGP-FABM)
IIM-Ahmedabad's commitment to the Agri-Business sector dates back to its inception, when the Institute accepted managerial issues related to agriculture, food, and other socially significant sectors as part of its thrust areas. In pursuit of this goal, a Special Program in Agriculture was started in 1974. Today the SPA has evolved into the two year Post Graduate Program in Food and Agri-Business Management (PGP-FABM), established to transform dynamic and determined men and women into tomorrow's leaders and decision makers in the food, rural, developmental, and allied sectors. The PGP-FABM program is a sector-specific program firmly rooted in IIM-A's management culture and philosophy.
The objective of the Post Graduate Programme in Food and Agri-Business Management is to transform young men and women into competent professional managers for the agriculture, food, agri-business, rural and allied sectors. The programme caters to the needs of enterprises serving these sectors, both domestic and international. The programme will build sensitivity to domestic and international market needs and span the entire agricultural value chain. The programme specifically attempts to:
i. Equip the participants with the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes for managerial decision making and implementation in the unique context of agribusiness
ii. Encourage entrepreneurial capabilities in participants to make them effective change agents in agri-business
iii. Develop participants' capabilities to become leaders and nurture in them a commitment for integrity, ethics and social purpose
PGP-FABM has been consistently ranked Number 1 in the World in Agribusiness and Food Industry Management programs by Eduniversal, Paris, France for the years 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2015-16.
