Agriculture. Innovation. Business. Three words that the ISAM Business School (International School of Agri Management) is committed to spreading throughout the world. Three concepts are destined to coexist and lead. The agricultural sector is a pillar of the world. Without food, there is no life and no progress. And for basic food, we need the soil. Soil that has been neglected in recent years and which institutions and private companies are now trying to recover.
In this context, the agricultural model of Almeria serves as an example for conferences, congresses, fairs and classrooms in countries from different continents. From the Dominican Republic to New Zealand via South Africa.
This is exactly the route that ISAM’s spokespersons are going to follow to present its training programmes, accessible to interested parties from all over the world thanks to its online mode and to explain the reason for having chosen Almeria as the headquarters of its Business School specialising in the agricultural sector.
Leopoldo Pérez, ISAM’s Business Development Director, will participate in the Agroalimentaria 2023 Congress, which will be held from 31 May to 3 June in Santo Domingo. More than 150 buyers from 35 countries and more than 200 exporting companies from the Dominican Republic are expected to participate in the event. His speech, ‘New business opportunities in international markets for food exports’, will be on 2 June at 9:10 am, in the Churchill Room of the Dominican Fiesta Hotel. The leap to South Africa will be made by Germán Fernández, president and founder of ISAM, who will be one of the speakers at the World Seed Congress. Organised by the International Seed Federation (ISF), it will be held this year in Cape Town next week, from 5 to 7 June. It is the most important international meeting for seed professionals, where some concrete examples of seed companies working with external partners, academic institutions, universities and NGOs on specific issues, such as soil health or farmers’ expertise, will be on the table, increasing the knowledge and skills of all stakeholders. The aim is to have a positive impact on business and our planet.
ISAM’s president will speak about the best way forward regarding educational/training programmes at local and international levels to build the path to sustainable success for future generations of agricultural stakeholders. It will take place on 7 June, at 10:00 in Hall 2-3 at Chanel World.
In New Zealand, on 17 and 18 June, the focus will be on the students of the Master’s Degree in International Agribusiness Management (MIAM) The International Food and Agribusiness Management Association (IFAMA) is holding its annual conference there and invites agribusiness students to the international case study competition.
Business schools have adapted to internationalisation. Otherwise, they would not make sense in a globalised world. Their approach is not limited to the MBA but offers continuing education through social media, forums, apps, corporate services, mentoring and access to conferences such as this one in June.
