AFMI has moved ahead on the path of success since its inception, and its Agri Food Business Management Programme is the first of its kind, based on integrated approach and AICTE recognized. Well on its way to become a truly industry oriented and highly responsive agri-food business school, AFMI has established linkages with leading business schools and industries across the country.
The students of AFMI are handpicked from the pool of very talented candidates through multi stage selection process. Strict criteria and a stringent admission process ensure that only the best enter the hallowed portals of this venerable institute. This pool of raw talent is meticulously groomed and rigorously trained in all aspects of management- be it academics, extra-curricular activities, team dynamics or leadership skills. AFMI students come from diverse backgrounds, which in itself help them to examine managerial issues from multiple perspectives. In addition, an environment conducive to new ideas and sharing of knowledge helps in the development of a spirit of co-operation among students.
However, effective management in the present scenario demands more than just the requisite know-how to excel. What is needed additionally is exposure and experience. In line with this thought, AFMI provides its students with an opportunity to explore beyond the borders and enrich their thought process through a rigorous academic process combining an exhaustive curriculum and cutting edge pedagogy. A plethora of live projects, guest lectures and mentorship programs give the managers-in-making at AFMI a taste of application of theory in practice.
Hence, AFMI differentiates itself on four fronts – an industry-focused curriculum, practical exposure, student driven activities and an expansive corporate interface ensuring management education in the true sense of the words. Two years at AFMI equip our students with the skills, knowledge and analytical mind-set required to identify and solve problems, effective communication skills to communicate these solutions, and sufficient practical exposure to create action plans and implement these solutions.
AFMI built its reputation by the practical approach to teaching theory grounded in real-world application.
AFMI ‘s flexibility to change curriculum as per industry requirement, inviting industry to have academic participation, sending students for long time industrial training and providing in-house customized training to the students ( as desired by a company after selection of students) have led many companies to be academic partner of AFMI.
