Agribusiness

Agribusiness is defined as agriculture conducted on commercial principles, or the various industries trading in agricultural produce and services. The management, organization, scoping, marketing, profitability and trade of agricultural products are some of the key topics that Agribusiness courses will cover. Quite often, Agribusiness courses focus on specific areas of the Agribusiness sector, like food processing, environment, management, international food policy, farming, seed supply, agrichemicals, farm machinery, sale and distribution.

Depending on the university or institution, Agribusiness courses may be more or less specific to the certain policies and conventions of a particular geographic region. In recognition of the rapidly globalizing world economy, other Agribusiness courses will teach students about international Agribusiness policy with common principles and regulators. Agribusiness courses can vary greatly in the amount of time it takes to complete them, and also in the class schedule and structure. Some Agribusiness courses will list prerequisites depending on the key subject matter to be covered.
