A degree in International Agribusiness is important because ag-related industries, from farming and livestock to food production and human nutrition, encompass a significant portion of careers worldwide. International agribusiness involves large-scale international business operations, such as production, processing, and distribution of agricultural products and manufacturing of farm machinery, equipment, and supplies internationally.
The program combines training in business, language skills, and economics courses that emphasize the role of trade and development issues that are critical to operating in the internationalized agribusiness sector. International agribusiness provides a foundation for employment with businesses and institutions serving agriculture and rural regions, such as banks and financial institutions, marketing and buying cooperatives, value-added food producers, real estate, land management, agricultural chemical production and sales, farms, and ranches.
