Agribusiness Minor

The agribusiness minor is designed to provide students in disciplines other than environmental and resource economics training in the economics and management of agricultural and other natural resource business firms. This program prepares students to work for private companies, governmental agencies, or nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations. Students who are interested in operating their own businesses will also find this minor very useful. The courses in the agribusiness minor emphasize the applications of economic and business management principles.
