Australia needs sustainable agricultural practices and communities for the future and Marcus Oldham understands that community based development is vital to economic prosperity. The Centre for the Study of Agribusiness is playing a key role in addressing the many issues that impact on agriculture and rural communities
One of the features of the Marcus Oldham Centre for the Study of Agribusiness, given its national focus, is to bring together, leading experts from around the world and around Australia to provide international ‘best practice’ approaches to addressing these challenges. This program includes symposiums, forums and ‘think tanks’, and provides a platform for opinions and advice on policies, strategies and practices necessary to effectively address topics that are crucial to the future of agriculture and farm management.
The Centre is the focus and interface for the College’s community engagement commitment. The concept of community engagement is not foreign to the College and programs in the area of leadership and corporate training are evidence of this continued commitment.
