Applications are currently open for the 2020 Masterclass in Horticultural Business, run by the University of Tasmania. To ensure maximum accessibility, and for the first time since its introduction, this year’s course is also available as an online option.
Now in its fourth year, the industry-tailored program provides practical business and leadership skills for horticulture managers by turning business ideas into actionable business plans.
In developing the business plan, participants study the following areas:
- Horticulture Management
- People and Culture
- Supply Chain Management and Logistics
- Financial Management and Law
- Horticulture Marketing and Communication
- Global Trends and International Business
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Business Development and Strategy
- Portfolio and Practice
The course can be completed full-time within ten months (but now accepts part-time enrolments) and is designed for flexible study, so you can work while completing the program. It is delivered predominantly online, with several face-to-face weekend workshops and on-farm experiences.
No previous education qualifications are required for acceptance into the course, and participants from all professional levels are welcome to apply.
The next course intakes are 13 July 2020 and 8 Feb 2021. Find out more and apply here.
