What will I learn?
Students will gain knowledge, understanding and skills in the principles and practices of agricultural production and how they contribute to practice change. There is an emphasis on understanding the value chain and business environment that is fundamental to the economic performance of agricultural industries and enterprises.
The course includes theory and practical activities around agricultural production, economics, finance and communication. Together these are used to understand the real-life and complex problems facing agricultural production, practice change and agribusiness.
Several of the advanced level units provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate self-directed learning, such as small group projects and industry placement. Students are encouraged to undertake practical work experience during vacations, providing valuable experience on agricultural properties and in agribusiness.
The BAppSc(AgrBus) consists of two compulsory majors - Agriculture and Agribusiness and a minor in enabling science.
This course provides a solid foundation for career opportunities in agribusiness consulting and management in the public or private sector. Aside from direct employment in the agriculture sector there are a board range of supporting industries which also require graduates skilled in both agriculture and business.
