Through collaborative research with Henley Business School UK’s Department of Real Estate and Planning, and the University of Reading’s Department of Agriculture, Henley Business School Africa has identified Agriculture and Land Reform as vital areas for training and growth in South Africa.

Two new programmes have been developed to address these needs.
