Course Overview

This Master’s in AgInnovation course, a one-year distance education/blended learning entrepreneurship development
programme, aims to fill the gap in terms of entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship skills for the agri-ecosystem in Ireland. Key stakeholders include micro, small, medium and large agri-companies as well as farmers. The aim of this course is to teach people how to identify areas for innovation specifically within the agri-domain, to create innovation-driven enterprises or to create new business units within an existing company. Particular consideration is given to helping students address:

  • Challenges around commercialising innovations (ideas and technologies);
  • Business constraints and guidelines (margins, CAGR, lifetime value, COCA, etc.);
  • Other difficulties related to getting new agri-products to sizeable markets (“crossing the chasm”).

Course Outline

The course will include customer-focused problem identification, problem validation, market analysis, technology viability assessment, competitive positioning, team building, product lifecycle planning, marketing strategy, and sales channel analysis. Robust and comprehensive agri-focused business plans will be developed that begin with an executive summary and follow through to the presentation of a comprehensive marketing plan.

Career Opportunities

This course will help to better guide students and increase their skills, to share best practices in entrepreneurship in the agri-domain and to accelerate innovation maturation and transfer into business. It will ideally place students to fill the agri-startup and innovation pipeline into the west of Ireland as well as nationally.
