Strategic Thinking in Agrifood Management Programme

The Strategic Thinking for Agriculture Management Programme (STAMP) is a transformative initiative designed to enhance strategic skills and industry awareness within the agri-food sector through Harvard Business School style case study analysis.

By leveraging the proven effectiveness of the Case Study method, STAMP empowers future leaders in agriculture to grasp local and global challenges and craft effective strategies to tackle them. Through workshops, site visits, and discussions with industry experts, participants gain valuable insights and networking opportunities to drive innovation and leadership in New Zealand’s agri-food sector.

STAMP is a valuable platform for emerging young leaders to connect, learn, and shape the future of agriculture management.

Case Study Competitions

Each year, a sub-set of the participants in the programme also get an opportunity to join the International Food and Agribusiness Management (IFAMA) International Conference and case study competition.

Joining the IFAMA competition allows participants to become exposed to international trends and markets in food and agri-business management. This is a chance to expand knowledge and global networks, while deepening analytical and strategic skills.

STAMP is organized by FoodHQ, with academic support from Massey University’s Professor Nicola Shadbolt and Senior Lecturer Elena Garnevska.
