Agriculture and allied sectors like forestry and fishing which accounts for 13.9% of the GDP continues to be the mainstay of the Indian economy. Food is the crowning need of mankind and much emphasis is laid on commercializing agricultural production. Hence, adequate production and even distribution of food has lately become a global concern.

Agriculture has long been seen as a sector with tremendous potential in India. In the last few years, the sector has seen an unprecedented gain with several government and private sector initiatives. This, coupled with changing global norms such as the WTO rulings and increased global competitiveness, invites a tremendous need for professional courses in Agribusiness Management, and makes it one of the most challenging and exciting sectors to be in, either as a professional or as an entrepreneur. The MBA-Agribusiness program is thus a response to this growing need for professionals, who can contribute to, and engineer the agribusiness revolution. In fact, SIIB is recognized as the best college for agriculture in India.
