UCD Management Development Programme 2014



UCD Management Development Programme

Exclusively for ASA Members
Final Session – Thursday 12 June 2014.

Great Start to Management Development Programme

The Management Development Programme, organised for ASA members and run by UCD, has got off to a great start. Held in the Castleknock Hotel, Dublin, the first workshop took place on 27 March.

The subject of the workshop was ‘Leadership in Agribusiness – the Case of Glanbia. We were most fortunate to have John Moloney as our special guest. John, who retired as chief executive of Glanbia plc in late 2013, participated in a detailed discussion on the Glanbia story as it emerged from the Avonmore/Glanbia merger to the global cheese and nutritional business it is today.

The programme involves three interactive and intensive half-day sessions aimed at providing both theoretical and practical insights into key issues in food and agribusiness. The sessions are facilitated by Alan Renwick, Professor of Agricultural and Food Economics in UCD.

The second workshop on ‘Managing the Export Challenge – the case of Dairymaster’ takes place in the Castleknock Hotel on 15 April. Our special guest is Dr Edmond Harty, chief executive of Dairymaster.
Professor Marcos Fava Neves, FEARP Business School, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, is the special guest at the final workshop on 12 June, also in the Castleknock Hotel. Focusing on an international business, it will examine key areas in food business strategy.
