Comparative Food and Agricultural Systems – Collaboration between the Masters of Agribusiness Program at Kansas State University and Asian Agribusiness
This project is to enhance effectiveness in food and agricultural systems in Asian agribusinesses utilizing resources from the Masters of Agribusiness (MAB) Program at Kansas State University in the US. This project aims to form a link between Asian agribusinesses and an award-winning fully accredited distance education professional program that focuses on food and agribusiness management. The contribution of this project is to help Asian agribusinesses to learn innovative knowledge of agribusiness management that has been fully studied in an academic institution but may not be available to practitioners.
This project is important in a way to fulfill the need of the MAB Program at Kansas State University to include Asian agribusinesses in its widely covered research resources. For regional economic development, the communication channel developed in this project for Asian agribusinesses can be important in a way to provide innovative knowledge in agribusiness management. Since Asian agribusiness has its uniqueness in the international agricultural market, enhanced efficiency in agribusiness management forms a strong foundation for safe and steady food supply from Greater China, which contributes to the global economic development.
