The Mission

UnitedAg developed the Agribusiness Emerging Leaders (AEL) Academy to cultivate the next generation of agribusiness leaders. Through professional development of these emerging leaders, we hope to ensure a thriving agricultural industry for generations to come.

The Academy

The AEL Academy is a one-year leadership program focusing on the personal and professional development of a select group of five agribusiness students. Designed for individuals pursuing careers in agribusiness, the program consists of ag-related courses, networking and relationship-building activities, and guidance from leading industry executives through an intimate speaker series exclusive to the academy.
