Represent UNE in the Student Case Study Competition at the 2017 International Food and Agribusiness Management Association (IFAMA) Annual World Symposium and Forum in Florida, USA.

The Student Case Study Competition is held as part of IFAMA’s Annual World Symposium and Forum and consists of teams who simulate a fast turn-around analysis and presentation to a senior management team on an industry—hot topic.

In the first week of the study tour students will visit Wyoming and the Colorado Front Range, an urban corridor located along the eastern face of the Southern Rocky Mountains which is an emerging innovation cluster in the food and agricultural industries. In the second week of the tour students will attend the IFAMA annual conference in Florida and compete in the IFAMA Student Case Study Competition.
