Take an important step forward in your career.

IFAMA is unique among professional associations. We are a forward looking and multi-disciplinary organization that encompasses all food and agribusiness related industries and functions.

Students are a vital component of our organization. It takes a global community of committed individuals to solve the foreseen challenges ahead in agriculture. We know that by reaching across continents and working through cultural differences we can develop innovative strategies to create a sustainable future.

There are several reasons why companies doing business in agriculture look to IFAMA as an important source for recruiting and finding new talent to fill jobs in the global food system:

  1. IFAMA candidates are globally savvy and better prepared for the issues facing the global marketplace.

  2. We have a reputation for delivering strong students who are passionate about our industry.

  3. IFAMA provides students ongoing opportunities to develop their critical thinking skills and understanding the global food system.

  4. We have the next generation of thinkers—who will help drive innovation and discovery to reshape agribusiness, biosecurity, the environment, agriculture, and succession in the food system.

The IFAMA conference provides a wide range of opportunities to learn from some of the tops minds in agriculture, and network with others who possess similar experiences and interests. Whether it’s the Student Case Competition, attending a research presentation, or an agribusiness case study break-out session, you have an opportunity to take a step forward with your career.  There are unlimited ways to put your unique skill set to work. Learn more by attending an IFAMA conference.

“Building a talented workforce is critical to meeting the growing global demands. We are always looking for bright new talent to join DuPont Pioneer. My colleagues that accompanied me at the IFAMA conference were impressed with the caliber of participants that attended. We made some great connections with university staff, governmental officials, and of course the students!”

“The conference has definitely impacted what I believe my career could look like. I am now very interested in working in Africa, as it is an interesting and rapidly growing business environment. I would also like to do something in my career which impacts food security and really benefits people. ”
