Agriculture Business (Transfer)

Merge business and agriculture-related fields
Study the financial ecosystem between getting food from the farm to the table.
The process of how food gets from the field to our tables begins on the farm, however, there’s an entire financial ecosystem that exists in between those two points. There are also numerous career opportunities for individuals with an interest in business and agriculture-related fields, beyond the traditional roles of farmer and rancher. Supply chain analysts, agricultural statisticians, farm machinery sales representatives, and commodity brokers are just a few of the professionals who work at the intersection of agriculture and commerce. They support an industry that helps feed and clothe people all over the world. In an associate program in Agricultural Business, you will study agriculture finance, learn about the many factors that affect the buying and selling of food, and examine business management aspects of food production.
