The minor in Agricultural Business 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. Students will develop skills in agricultural production management, financial management, marketing, and international development and trade. These skills will be valuable to students seeking careers at agricultural companies, or as owner-operators in their own businesses.
The minor is highly complementary to the major fields of study that focus on the agricultural sciences (e.g., most majors within the College of Agricultural Sciences) and those that focus on other technical fields where applied business management skills are relevant. Applicable courses that contribute to the minor include core cores in agricultural economics, financial management, product and commodity marketing, law and policy, and agribusiness management.
