Horticulture Business Management B. Tech.

Student helping at plant sale

Put that green thumb to work.

As a student in our Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) degree program in horticulture business management, you’ll start with a hands-on education in horticulture and grow into an entrepreneur-based approach to owning or operating a horticulture-related business.

You’ll work with faculty who have been recognized for their skills in the classroom and who have experience in numerous horticulture or business careers. You’ll benefit from horticulture facilities that are among the most advanced in the country, and an entrepreneurial program that is unique in its scope and practical approach to business innovation.

The curriculum features a complete education in all aspects of horticulture, as well as courses in business management and law and marketing. You'll also learn by doing through our Four Seasons Farm, a certified organic farm operated and maintained by the college's horticulture department that provides hands-on educational experience through year-round crop production. Your educational experience will culminate in a semester-long internship in horticultural business.

When it comes time to learn from industry and go after your first job, you’ll benefit from Morrisville’s affiliations with the Society of American Florists, the National Association of Landscape Professionals, and the New York State Landscape and Nursery Association.

As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared to start your own business or to work in and manage a wide range of businesses related to horticultural production, ornamental horticulture, and wholesale and retail marketing in nursery and greenhouse settings, garden centers, landscape businesses, food crops, and other related careers.
