Agribusiness

Agribusiness is the world’s oldest, largest and most important industry. It is the business of agriculture production, a business that drives public policy, economic development and trade. Agribusiness professionals will be instrumental in developing new techniques and technologies, responsible for sustaining the world’s growing population and exhausted food resources. A degree in agribusiness doesn’t just prepare you to work on a farm, it prepares you for a wide range of agriculture and natural resource based careers. In our program, you’ll study the economic, social and political forces and trends that impact U.S. and global agribusinesses.
