Today we have passed several notable milestones and consistently improved on many fronts that have a bearing on achieving academic excellence. The inner spirit of India is calling us to establish a great centre on this land, where all intellectual forces will gather for the purpose to create the wealth of knowledge. We have so many Post Graduate Degree programme apart from excellent research and extension wings. We have endeavoured to create a highly inspiring atmosphere and learning environment in a beautiful campus. Apart from quality education, Utkal University shoulders the responsibility of research of par excellence meeting the escalating demands of growing educational dimensions.
Food processing, agro processing, production of agricultural inputs (planting materials, fertilizers, farm equipment and machinery), domestic and global trade in agri-products, management of agricultural credit institutions, management of warehouses and cold chain, agriculture policy formulation, futures market in agri-commodities, organized retailing, management of market intelligence and information services, agro services, etc. are some matured and emerging sectors of agri-business.
Having sensed the potential of the agri-business sector to generate number of lucarative managerial portfolios, several leading public and private educational institutions are on the bee-line to start management education programmes specializing in agri-business. The MBA in agri-business management offered by the Utkal University is uniquely positioned in this back drop.
I heartily express all my good wishes for the excellent progress of the Centre For Agri-Management and bright future for the students.
