The nursery industry is funding three scholarships for a newly created Masterclass in Horticultural Business program, with upcoming leaders urged to register their interest now.
The course is designed for those with previous experience in horticulture, to help grow their management and leadership skills, and will run for ten months. The first intake of students is February 2017.
Best described as a mini-MBA, the program has been developed by international leaders in horticulture including the University of Tasmania, Horticulture Innovation Australia, the Netherland’s Wageningen Academy and New Zealand’s Lincoln University.
The program will enable students to gain valuable knowledge and business skills that can be immediately put into practice and, on top of that, develop excellent networks with peers across the globe.
Students will learn from global leaders in horticulture that will help to further develop their business and, more broadly, contribute to the wider industry.
The course includes eight modules, each delivered online over five weeks, with some face-to-face learning.
- Horticultural Management
- People and Culture
- Supply Chain Management and Logistics
- Financial Management and Law
- Horticultural Marketing and Communication
- Global Trends and International Business
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Business Development and Strategy
For three applicants from the nursery industry, there’s an opportunity for the course fees to be fully covered by the nursery levy – make a note of your interest in the scholarships when you register for more information.
