An Agribusiness degree instills decision-making and analytical skills but offers students interested in food and agriculture the opportunity to strengthen their understanding of business – management, marketing or finance – by completing a business or accounting minor. The program addresses emerging issues such as food safety, food protection and defense; and value-added food processing.
Agribusiness students can focus on:
|Students are exposed to a range of concepts and methods useful in agribusiness decision-making in each of four areas of specialization: finance, management, marketing and policy/trade. Agribusiness graduates also learn problem-solving and effective communication skills.|
Agribusiness students are required to participate in an internship during their studies. Employers continue to place high importance on work-related experience when they evaluate potential employees.
Collaboration with the College of Business Administration leads to concurrent satisfaction of a minor in one of the business fields. Minors in either accounting or business administration are encouraged.
