U.S. Executives' Views on International Agribusiness Education in the United States: An IAMA Membership Survey

Industry members of the International Agribusiness Management Association were surveyed regarding agribusiness education. Respondents agreed that an ability to communicate and work with others are the most important skills for new graduates to possess. Skills and experiences related to international business were considered less important. Most respondents indicated that they do or are willing to assist the academic community with curricular design or implementation. Viewpoints of firms more actively involved in the academic curriculum concerning student qualifications and design of an international study program differed from those of other firms that also employ new graduates, but were not so engaged.
