Agribusiness is the study of the business and economics of agribusiness firms. Aspects unique to agribusiness are the risks and uncertainties of agricultural production, the heavy reliance on natural resources, the uniqueness of the institutions that govern food and agriculture, the competitive structures within the agribusiness sector, the technology of commercial agriculture and food processing, and the global dimensions of food and agriculture. The agribusiness curriculum emphasizes agribusiness courses in agricultural economics and foundation courses in business administration. Students must complete the university general education requirements specified by the College of Agriculture.
