Our strong alumni base is comprised of more than 30 countries involved in major agriculture related organisations in private and public sector, working towards the betterment of the global community. The success of our alumni is a testament to the hard work, dedication and their commitment to succeed in the field they have chosen. We are always excited to hear about the achievements of our alumni and cherish their success.
