Important Update Regarding Business Management Programs 2020/2021

We regret that due to the ongoing challenges presented by the global spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Rabobank has made the difficult decision to cancel the Business Management Programs this year.

This decision has been made in line with Australian Health Department guidelines and the bank’s internal policies, which place the health and safety of our clients, business partners and employees above all other considerations.

All Business Management Programs will be rescheduled to next year, please continue to register your interest by clicking on the ‘Expression Of Interest’ button below.

Develop skills to evolve your business

The two programs offer an invaluable opportunity to learn from business professionals and network with leading farmers from across Australia and New Zealand.

The two programs are Executive Development Program and Farm Managers Program.
