Course Description

International Ag Marketing

The globalization of markets for food and agricultural products makes it essential to understand how international food and agricultural markets function and how they influence the options and choices of food and agribusiness firms.

The course will also examine the impact of our changing social demographics on domestic product sales. Students will be required to prepare and present an analysis of barriers to international trade and opportunities for emerging national and international markets, as well as develop an international marketing plan for a product of their choice. Prerequisites: AGBS 100 3 credits (3 lecture hours), spring semester
