Agribusiness focuses on integrating technical knowledge with economic theory for decision making about the use of scarce productive resources to produce food and fiber and distribute them to society.

Career-focused curriculum

The agribusiness concentration will provide you with a deep understanding of production economics, agricultural finance, agricultural marketing, natural resource economics and farm management.

Hands-on learning

  • examining the management characteristics and marketability of agricultural production systems such as miniature and lowline cattle breeds
  • participating in community outreach events through the Todd Agricultural Research Center and SFA Gardens
  • and completing exciting internships with organizations such as the United States Department of Agriculture - Rural Development Office.
