Agricultural Business Minor

Do You Want to Improve the Sustainability and Economics of our Industry?

The Agricultural Business minor is open to all students who desire to complete an integrated set of courses where they learn how to apply economic principles and business management tools to a broad range of agricultural and small business management applications. Areas of study in the minor include agricultural production management, financial management, marketing management, international development and trade.

The minor is highly complementary to the major fields of study that focus on the agricultural sciences and those that focus on other technical fields where applied business management skills are relevant.
