Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Business - Agriculture Business

The Agriculture 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 Agriculture Business integrates the discipline of agriculture, business, accounting, economics and finance. Emphasis is placed on management directed towards the farm business and Agriculture 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.
