The Agricultural Business Curriculum provides a base of knowledge and training which supports career opportunities that require a fundamental knowledge of both business and agriculture. Two concentrations are offered to give the student maximum flexibility in pursuing educational and career goals: Business, and Plant Science.
The Business Concentration focuses on applied agricultural production, processing, financing, and marketing functions, as well as corporate business principles. The concentration features a built-in minor in Business Administration from the College of Business plus 14 hours of directed electives that allow the student to specialize in areas of agriculture, business, or other disciplines that are consistent with career goals.
The Plant Science Concentration includes a built-in minor in Plant Science and is designed for students who are interested in careers in such fields as Golf Course or Public Garden Maintenance, Landscape Contracting, Nursery and Greenhouse Operations, Ornamental Plant Production, Sports Turf Management, Irrigation Technology, Agricultural Extension, or Research Technology. Practical applications, combined with up-to-date course materials, provide students with excellent preparation for either professional or graduate school opportunities.
