EL PROGRAMA DE LICENCIATURA EN AGRONEGOCIOS INTERNACIONALES EN LA UNIVERSIDAD VERACRUZANA, MEXICO

This paper reviews the origin of the International Agribusiness bachelor degree program (LAI) offered by the University of Veracruz (UV). Background information that led to the proposal is revisited; similar programs currently offered in Mexico are analyzed, and highlighted the features offered by the LAI-UV program. The goal of this program is to position the University of Veracruz as a leader in human resource training for agribusiness in southeastern Mexico. We identified 13universitiesoffering a similar agribusiness degree program, although operating under nine different names; they share several features in their curricula. All programs aim to develop common competencies such as, agricultural marketing, business administration, design and evaluation of productive projects, and organization of producer groups. It is concluded that the program of LAI-UV can fill a niche in education in a region where the primary sector activities are particularly important.
