The number of bachelor’s degrees awarded in food and agribusiness management continues to climb, while the size of faculty that has traditionally taught in these programs declines. As a result, there is an opportunity for the International Food and Agribusiness Management Association (IFAMA) to cultivate good teaching among its academic members. This paper documents the trends and suggests six actions that IFAMA could take to create value for its academic members actively engaged in teaching: (1) facilitate surveys of professors and industry on agribusiness curriculums, (2) collaborate with like-minded organizations, (3) develop and maintain a database of industry speakers, (4) assist in the development of webinars related to teaching, (5) organize a formal teaching mentoring program, and (6) honor members for teaching achievements.
