- The Agribusiness Management major is designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in careers with agricultural input supply, agricultural production, commodity assembly and processing, and agricultural marketing organizations. The program, which focuses on the managerial functions performed by organizations throughout the agribusiness sector, provides a system–wide perspective of managerial problems confronting such organizations. Faculty members associated with the program maintain close relationships with agribusiness companies.
- The US Department of Agriculture estimates that many more agribusiness careers are available than there are qualified people to fill them. The shortage will be greatest for managers, financial specialists and marketing/sales representatives — the careers upon which our program focuses.
