Offerings: Major

Agriculture- Agriculture Business

The Ag-Business program provides a balanced educational program with relatively broad interdisciplinary training as opposed to narrow specialization, thus preparing the student for success in their chosen field. The program in Ag-Business integrates the discipline of agriculture, business, accounting, economics and finance. Emphasis is placed on management directed towards the farm business and Ag-Business firms. Trends in careers related to agriculture are shifting from production to ag-business services such as management, processing, distribution and marketing. This creates a need for recruits with a broad background in these areas of training. Our systems concept is geared to integration of disciplines to better prepare graduates for present day needs.
