Agriculture plays a vital role in India's economy. More than 55% of the households depend on agriculture as their principal means of livelihood. Agriculture, along with horticulture, poultry, ﬁsheries and forestry, is one of the largest contributors to the national GDP.
It is imperative therefore that the management of farm economies is done for achieving the multiple tasks the sector is expected to perform. I am delighted that you are considering Indian School of Agribusiness as a means to fulﬁll your role in the nation building process through its outstanding Agribusiness management program.

For students, selecting the right courses at the right college is very important. Our relentless eﬀorts will always continue to provide a good learning environment within and outside the institute and make students' life cheerful and memorable.
