Accelerate your knowledge and understanding
of today’s complex Agri-Business issues
Managing personnel, evaluating new market opportunities, negotiating mergers and acquisitions, adapting to regulatory and technology changes –
a commercial farming or ranching operation faces the same issues and
requires the same skills as any other big business. And although your consultants
can advise you on seed varieties or livestock vaccines, they can’t teach
you to predict global market shifts or take advantage of niche opportunities.
But that and more is exactly what you’ll learn at The Executive Program
for Agricultural Producers, sponsored by Farm Credit System, John Deere, and DTN and
administered by Texas A&M University. Now in its 23rd year, the Executive
Program teaches advanced agribusiness skills such as evaluating global economic development, niche market evaluation, analyzing and forecasting
financial position, as well as personnel management and negotiation.
Sharpen your management and leadership skills.
As a Program attendee, you’ll spend an intensive week in classroom sessions
with some of the most prominent ag economists and agribusiness
specialists, many of whom also own, manage or participate in large-scale
farming and ranching operations. After the daily class sessions, you’ll take
part in individual study and roundtable discussions with your classmates –
some of the leading producers in the country and from around the world.
The study will be intensive and the days will be long, but at the end of your
session, you’ll be better able to manage the issues facing complex farm
and ranch businesses. Come prepared to learn, and be ready to leave your
business responsibilities at home.
