What will I learn?

Agricultural Business introduces current issues, challenges and opportunities in the agricultural and related sectors to prepare you for a rewarding career. Courses cover business management, natural science and agriculture, so you can approach these industries with a well-rounded foundation of essential knowledge.

Study topics include micro and macroeconomics, accounting, strategic and human resource management, consumer behaviour and entrepreneurship. You'll discuss the pros and cons of franchises and genetically modified foods, as well as topics like consumer perceptions of food safety and alternative fuels for business energy needs.

In addition, you will learn to identify marketing opportunities and challenges and work on business development plans. Stories in the media influence class discussions and allow you to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world problems.

The agri-food industry is growing. Our Agricultural Business program gives you the expertise to grow with it.
