Students in the Agribusiness curriculum receive a strong background in agriculture and agribusiness, a combination that is in demand for today's agriculture. Graduates in Agribusiness can anticipate careers in an expanding and changing agriculture or in businesses serving agriculture. Agriculture continues to grow and change. More tractors, fertilizer, feed and other production supplies are needed. As more food is produced in increasingly varied forms there is a requirement for more processing, distribution, and other marketing functions and facilities. Entrepreneurs in agriculture require more advisory, informational and educational services. Thus, agribusiness and government agencies are hiring increasing numbers of young men and women who have both agricultural and agribusiness training.
