Why Morrisville?

I chose Morrisville because it was exactly what I was looking for. Right when I stepped on campus it felt right to me. The horticulture program and facilities really got my attention and I enjoy the small town feel of Morrisville. The students have a real relationship with their professors and I really feel at home here.

Horticulture Business Management is an innovative bachelor’s degree program that is designed to bridge the gap between a horticultural and business education. It provides students with both solid, hands-on horticulture and entrepreneurial-based education. This degree is the first of its kind in the Northeast.

The green industry, nationwide, generates approximately $147.8 billion in annual sales. Horticulture enterprises include a wide range of florists, growers, garden centers, landscapers, lawn care professionals... Opportunities are continuing to expand. The purpose of this program is to provide students entering the horticulture industry with the necessary knowledge, skills, and training to own, manage and/or be employed in a commercial horticulture business. The Ornamental Horticulture Program at Morrisville State College has had an on-going commitment to using entrepreneurial activities. Our outstanding faculty enable our students to participate in a wide range of horticulture business activities.

Although many graduates of this program will be interested in establishing their own business, this degree would also provide qualified students with the opportunity to secure entry level management positions in horticultural businesses in production, wholesale/retail marketing, and ornamental horticulture service areas such as, retail and wholesale nursery/greenhouse firms, retail garden centers, landscape businesses, food crop production, horticultural product development and marketing firms.

This new program marks the beginning of an exciting time for horticulture education at Morrisville State College and gives horticulture students a new, dynamic bachelor’s degree!
