Prospects: Agriculture is very much in focus in India. All across India the economy requires skilled manpower, and the Bachelor in Vocational Education in Agriculture does not only qualify the applicant in basic agricultural skills but the sector opens up to a large variety of sub-industries such as Horticulture, Floriculture, Poultry, Organic Farming etc.
Each industry has a large number of job opportunities in the agricultural sector. At Mitraniketan the students will be offered job training courses at the different agricultural workshops. This practical approach will help the students for better employability.
