Food and Agribusiness

MAJOR

Overview

Agribusiness is a thriving discipline that refers to the collective business activities in food, fibre and agricultural supply chains. With the world’s population expected to reach 9.8 billion in 2050, the food and agribusiness sector has never been more important. Undertaking the Food and Agribusiness major will provide you opportunity to be part of this growing sector, and your agribusiness skills will be highly sought after given the world-wide shift towards more complex, technology-intensive agricultural systems and management and challenges to produce healthier and more socially and environmentally-responsible food. This major will give you a solid understanding of the interlinkages between food and agricultural market structure, international and domestic policies, and innovations and sustainability issues. With its strong practical focus, the major will equip you to be work-ready through real-world economic, financial, marketing, accounting and management learning, as well as engagement with industry, governments and other stakeholders.
