Introduction of Bsc Agribusiness Management Course
Agribusiness is the business of food, agricultural commodity and fiber production and the technology necessary to change a raw material (a commodity) or an idea into a new product or business for the world's consumers. Producing, financing, marketing, and providing food, agricultural commodities and fiber for the world amounts to more than one-half of the global economy. Following world population increases, forecasters have predicted that more than nine billion food and fiber consumers will be part of the global agribusiness system by the year 2050. They have also estimated that, at that time, more than 20,000 agribusiness jobs will go unfilled due to a lack of skilled professionals. A degree in Agribusiness Management focuses on agribusiness and business development in nonmetropolitan regions. Agribusinesses in these regions tend to be smaller and more self-sufficient, which poses special challenges and opportunities. The program is also of interest to students seeking a career in rural enterprise development. The program offers training in the use of business, marketing, financial management, economics, and computer applications to address agribusiness management and small enterprise development in agriculture. This degree program combines knowledge of business
management and agricultural systems with an understanding of how the market economy works and the appropriate role of government regulation.
