Career Opportunities

One of every six jobs in the American economy are related to agricultural and food businesses. The curriculum in Agricultural Business is designed to provide students with technical and business skills necessary to be successful in our nation's largest industry. Career opportunities in agribusiness range from managing a dairy/equine farm or to working in the banking or publishing industries. Ample opportunities are available in the management of farm supply stores or cooperatives, agricultural input sales, working in the insurance or real estate areas, and a number of agricultural processing and manufacturing industries. Students may also pursue a four-year degree in Agricultural Business Development.
