Developing Teaching Materials and Quality Standard..
Developing Teaching Materials and Quality Standards for a Network of MBA Programmes in 'Agribusiness Management'
This project will support an established European network of international Agribusiness MBA programmes, which currently provide training for practising managers and graduates in business management for the Agribusiness sector. It is felt that existing MBA programmes need to improve and expand their learning base to reflect EU enlargement and the challenges and opportunities that this represents to the Agribusiness sector. Given this background the project aims to create new teaching and learning materials for existing MBA programmes offered by the project partners and to achieve a common approved standard for the content and delivery of this new material. Both traditional and web-based learning materials will be employed to deliver the new teaching/learning material. The MBA will comprise seven core courses covering public policy, economics, management, marketing, finance, operational methods and international Agribusiness. Specific project partners will have responsibility for overseeing the management of each course's development, with other partners assigned specific roles in the development of course content and mode of delivery. A range of handbooks will be written to accompany each course and will be supported by the collection and fine-tuning of international case study material to illustrate each module. The course handbooks and case study materials will be accessible to teachers and students via the project partners MBA websites. The project partnership will emphasise quality assurance in the development of the courses in order to deliver a standardised internationally recognised MBA programme. Courses will initially be prepared in EN with translation to other languages at a later stage. Dissemination of course material and information about the MBA will be undertaken via partner websites and will utilise partners’ existing extensive international networks.
