Expressing his thoughts on the collaboration, Prof. Harry Ankoné, Dean, Delta Areas & Resources, VHL University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands, said, “I am glad that we are commencing and exploring the area of Agri Business and Agricultural education. Students will be exposed to a combination of national and international programs in agriculture/rural management and can choose specialisations from production chain management in AgriBusiness, supply and value chain development and management of development.  These programs could be short term and long term.  Other areas under the collaboration will include research and student exchange programs.”


Dr. Salunkhe, Group Director, WeSchool, said, “A typical work role in agriculture requires theoretical knowledge and practical experience in planning produce, managing finance, supply chain and thorough understanding of crop production. With the right business management skills, farming practice can become resilient even without monsoon and apply technology more effectively to overcome challenges. This tie up will ascertain significance of management skills in agriculture education. Our students will be offered opportunities to gain scientific know-how through field-work and research in India and Netherlands.”
