Prospective Students


The Bachelor of Science degree program in Agricultural Business provides students with a comprehensive business background combined with a working knowledge of production agriculture.  In this program, you focus on management, marketing, finance, and economics while addressing questions and concerns involving the economics and sociology of agriculture, natural resources, and rural communities. 

Students may opt for one of the following areas of concentration: Agribusiness Finance, Food Industry Management, International Business, or Rural Development.  These areas of concentration are of interest for students who plan to work in these subfields of agricultural business upon graduation.  Students are not required to declare an area of concentration.  Opting to not declare an area of concentration gives students more flexibility to choose coursework that meets their unique objectives.

Some career sectors commonly entered by Agricultural Business graduates include the following:  commodity and wholesale marketing, banking and investment, management, consulting, production agriculture, general wholesale and retail, state or federal government, and graduate or professional school.
