India has made tremendous progress in agriculture and allied sectors after its independence. Liberalisation of policies of the government, fostering public-private partnership in different areas and facilitating entry of national and multinational companies in the agriculture value chain are some of the factors contributing to the changes being witnessed. Inspite of numerous achievements, India is still a minor international contributor in terms of Agribusiness Sector. Indian agriculture can reach the next stage of development and become a major international player in agri business markets if it can ensure the availability of qualified agribusiness professionals in the sector. Agribusiness Management education, is therefore, attracting attention of the policymakers of the country in view of the vast opportunities of growth that exist in the core areas like production, processing, marketing, exports etc.
Since its inception in 2000, Institute of Agri Business Management has emerged as one of the major centre of higher education, training and research in Agri Business Management. IABM has made significant contribution by providing competent manpower with the desired technical and managerial skills through its MBA (AB) programme to the agribusiness industry in the last one decade. The students of the batch 2012-14 are well equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to seek opportunities for themselves. I am quite confident that they will be true assets to the agribusiness organisations and contribute the most in its development and growth.

With a literally carved out tagline of the institute Strengthening Agribusiness, a new batch of IABM is ready to contribute its unique self.

The fast changing globalised business world has not left agriculture untouched. Expansion and improvement in technology, infrastructure and facilities have been responsible for commercialisation of agriculture which has paved way for the development of various allied sectors. In view of the contributions to this development in agriculture, academicians have made several changes in course curriculum and teaching methodologies.
Institute of Agri Business Management, Bikaner is playing a very important role in developing and shaping committed and effective managers in the field of agribusiness. The institute, approved by AICTE and accredited by Indian Council of Agricultural Research, has created excellent infrastructure and academic environment in its journey of 14 years. IABM attracts brains from different parts of the country and grooms them to work with positive mindset in harsh conditions. Rigorous individual level training and practical exposure to small batch size is a distinct feature of the institute. Alumni of institute are working in different sectors successfully and are a valuable resource to the organisation. I am confident that students of current two batches will be able to raise the standards of performance.
All these efforts will go futile if students do not get good opportunity to start their career in a progressive organisation. I feel happy to invite you to give a chance to the students of IABM to bring life to their careers while contributing towards the growth of your esteemed organisation.

About IABMThe changing world economic environment and globalisation of economies has necessitated professionalism in important sectors of Indian economy such as agriculture and rural development. Growing emphasis on business orientation of agriculture has necessitated the demand for trained manpower in the areas such as specialised production, post-harvest management, promotion of value-added agri products, supply chain management etc. so as to position these competitively both in the domestic as well as in the international markets. Agri business management education has taken a very crucial place over the years in order to meet the requirement of skilled agribusiness managers in the country.
