INTERNATIONAL FOOD AND AGRIBUSINESS MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION
IFAMA YOUNG PROFESSIONALS
TAKE AN IMPORTANT CAREER STEP FORWARD
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.
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:
The IFAMA conference provides a wide range of opportunities to learn from some of the top 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.
Meet the IFAMA Young Board
The IFAMA Young Board was born to help drive the overall objective of IFAMA: to bring together the world's leading scholars and students, industry and NGO professionals, and policymakers to improve the strategic focus, transparency, sustainability and responsiveness of the food and agribusiness system.
The achievement of IFAMA objectives is both rewarding and challenging, and it is for this reason that we are reaching out to students, as well as young agribusiness professionals in academia, industry, NGOs and policy. We understand that the contribution and commitment of young professionals are crucial to fulfilling our goals. We therefore solicit your support in helping us take IFAMA and the conversations surrounding the agri-food sector to the next level. Specifically, here are ways you can contribute:
I want to join the Young Professionals Network!
“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. ”
The NextGen Ag Impact Network, the new, global, inclusive and intergenerational network of networks for, with, and by young people in agriculture and related fields, creates a community, programs, and opportunities to contribute to an impactful transformation of agricultural ecosystems towards sustainability, in line with the UN SDGs.
