The two-year Post-Graduate Programme in Food and Agri-Business Management (PGP-FABM), offered by the Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad, has been ranked Number One in the world for three consecutive years by Eduniversal, Paris, France, including for the year 2017-18.
A Post-Graduate Programme with Specialization Package in Agriculture (PGP-SPA) was started in 1974. In 2000, IIMA revamped it following the Institute's new approach to agri-business management education under changing economic environment.
More than 125,000 candidates apply for this programme each year and only about 46 are selected from across India.
The PGP-FABM is a full- time residential programme that evolved and expanded beyond agriculture to other allied areas such as food processing, commodities and rural development sector, and rural infrastructure, according to a press release here on Tuesday.
