Undergraduate & Graduate Courses

NDSU offers undergraduate and graduate courses that specifically focus on cooperatives.

NDSU undergraduate and graduate cooperatives courses are offered through Agribusiness & Applied Economics (AGEC) and Business Administration (BUSN) departments. They are intended to introduce students to cooperatives as a form of business enterprise. Cooperatives are important in many segments of the economy, both in the United States and elsewhere. Students will learn the role of cooperatives in market-oriented economies like the U.S. and will become familiar with cooperative principles, the economic theory of cooperatives, and the fundamentals of co-op operations including accounting principles, financing, decision making, and taxation. The focus will be primarily upon traditional agricultural cooperatives. However, other types of cooperatives will be examined in some detail during the second half of the course. The course is 3 credit hours during Spring Semester in a Lecture format.
