Agribusiness

A Fast-paced & High Tech Industry

The Agribusiness concentration is designed for students who wish to pursue agricultural business and related careers with business and government. Over the last several decades, the combination of agriculture, business, and science and technology has given rise to the emergence of the Agribusiness Industry. Today’s agribusiness industry (agri-food system) is a global, fast-paced, high technology industry that is one of the most effective adapters of scientific innovation.

Professionals and managers in this industry must not only be well-grounded in the science and technical aspects of food and fiber production, but also in the environment and the principles of business management. The curriculum in our Agribusiness concentration expands the whole-person concept of education, including development of entrepreneurship, leadership, and interpersonal skills.

The concentration is holistic and incorporates those skills agribusiness employers desire from agribusiness graduates. Students can take classes that span the Agricultural Sciences, Business and Management, Economics, Communications, Computer Science, and Quantitative Methods.
