AGRIMBA network was established in 1995 as a successful Tempus project at Warsaw Agricultural University (now Warsaw University of Life Sciences, WULS) and the Czech Agricultural University, Prague (now Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague, CULS). Since that time the network has developed into an efficient way of upgrading the management knowledge of young managers mainly in Central and East Europe. However, the MBA is not only a way of improving the business skills of the students but also an effective way of intensifying the participating teaching staff's (mainly academics) contacts with the globalised world of agribusiness and their colleagues of the participating institutions. This two way approach is the main incentive for taking part in the programme, both for students and teaching staff. In this way AGRIMBA works as a highly needed medium of communication in the field of agribusiness between theory and practice. It is thus an effective tool in lifelong learning.
The network is co-ordinated by the AGRIMBA Board which comprises academics and professionals from co-operating institutions. The Board is responsible for the development of the core curriculum and for validating the MBA degree programmes as delivered by several of the partners. The AGRIMBA is an open network to which anyone can join. AGRIMBA became a standing committee of ICA at the ICA General Assembly 2003 in Beauvais.
