The AgriFood Executive Global Program offers a holistic, farm-to-fork learning experience that merges insights on global leadership with the latest
technological innovations paving the future of the industry. It offers a stimulating learning and networking forum that broadens participants’ perspectives and opens their eyes to new sources of corporate growth and competitive advantage.
Take the next step
Responsible for feeding humanity, the agrifood industry faces colossal challenges. In the wake of pressures on natural resources, rising inequality and fallout from climate change, the world risks the possibility of food shortages by 2050 unless productivity significantly increases. Against this backdrop, traditional leadership and business models no longer suffice. The AgriFood Executive Global Program (AEGP) offers insights aimed at helping participants better navigate in this highly
complex context. Over three modules, the learning experience combines IESE Business School’s broad knowledge in global leadership with Wageningen University & Research’s expertise in the agrifood sector and its game-changing technologies. Delivered on three continents − Europe, South America and Africa − the AEGP follows the evolution of the Green Revolution and its underlying drivers in distinct geographies. Agrifood
executives emerge with a stronger grasp of the sector’s dovetailing dynamics and leadership essentials to magnify their business performance.
