The Agribusiness Management program focuses on agribusiness and business development in nonmetropolitan regions. Businesses in these regions tend to be smaller and more self-sufficient, which creates special challenges and opportunities. The program offers training in the use of accounting, marketing, finance, management, agricultural law, economics and computer applications that allow students to successfully manage businesses for others or to manage their own businesses.
This program combines knowledge of business management and agricultural systems with an understanding of how the market economy works and the appropriate role of government regulation. Growth and production in the economy are examined in the context of natural resource conservation and agribusiness management.
There is high demand for graduates. Graduates may find employment with agricultural cooperatives, agricultural supply firms, banks, family farms, and other entrepreneurial ventures.
