About Agripreneurship Development and Management Skills Course for Youth (ARM 227)

It is quite worrisome to note that in spite of the abundant opportunities in agribusiness majority of Nigerian youth are in the threshold of unemployment and poverty. There is no gainsaying in the fact that agripreneurship development and management skills are inextricably tied to employment generation and poverty reduction. However most youths do not possess adequate agripreneurship skills. It is therefore imperative to enhance the skills and relevant stakeholders in agripreneurship development and management. Objectives: This course is designed to equip participants with requisite knowledge and skills for agricultural business development and management. At the end of the course, participants should be able to: formulate, design and develop agricultural business plan; identify appropriate sources for agribusiness funding; optimize agricultural business funds; and explain strategies for managing agricultural business effectively and efficiently.
