Area of Interest in Agricultural Business
Agricultural Business is a new area of interest within the Business Administration degree, beginning in the 2022 Fall Semester. The new area of interest will require five courses: Introduction to Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Marketing, Agricultural Finance, and Farm and Ranch Management, as well as one advisor-approved, upper-level course. The new agricultural business courses are open to all majors.
“The new agricultural business courses and area of interest within the business administration major will make USI and the Romain College of Business an attractive option for a new set of potential students who wish to contribute to one of the many businesses which are responsible for bringing food to the table,” says Dr. Jill Oeding, Associate Professor of Business Law. “Some students may be attracted to agribusiness courses because they were raised on a farm and wish to pursue a familiar career related to agriculture. Other students may be intrigued by the agricultural sector of the economy and choose to enhance their marketability by learning more about agricultural applications within business.”
