About the Program

Increasing opportunities exist for agricultural graduates to enter managerial positions in business. These businesses may be large or small and may be organized as proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, or cooperatives. They include meat, dairy, and poultry processing industries, grain handling, feed manufacturing, and seed and fertilizer firms; transportation and storage concerns; and wholesale and retail food businesses. Although this Department of Agricultural Economics curriculum gives special emphasis to agriculturally related businesses, its requirements are broad enough to allow adequate preparation for nonagricultural businesses. This option also has enough flexibility to permit you to prepare for an international career in agricultural business and can serve as a foundation for graduate school.

Concentrations include:

  • Agribusiness Management
  • Agrifinance
  • Agrimarketing
  • Commodity Marketing
  • Food Marketing
