Applications will close at the end of this month for the 2014 Rabobank Executive Development Program, Australasia’s reputed agricultural business management course for leading primary producers.

Now in its 15th year, the prestigious Rabobank Executive Development Program gives leading Australian and New Zealand farmers from a range of agricultural sectors the opportunity to develop and enhance their business management skills.

The program introduces participants to the latest practices in business management, leadership, strategy and planning, finance, human resources, value chain management and marketing, and how these can be directly applied to their farm businesses.

Rabobank group executive for Country Banking Australia Peter Knoblanche said the business of running an agricultural enterprise has become increasingly sophisticated, with farm owners and managers needing to draw equally on their farm knowledge and professional business skills in order to remain competitive and profitable.

Mr Knoblanche explains that the Rabobank Executive Development Program provides farmers with the opportunity to enhance their management and leadership skills within the context of primary production.

Participants in the program develop the ability to plan and implement best practice business strategies that suit their own unique business operation, giving them a competitive edge and ensuring a sustainable long-term future.

Applications for the Rabobank 2014 Executive Development Program are open until Friday 30 May 2014, with applicants accepted from across a range of commodities and geographical locations in Australia and New Zealand. Held in Sydney, the first module runs from 17 to 22 August 2014, with the second module taking place in July of next year.
