Agriculture plays an extensive and essential part in today's economy. Individuals seeking a career in agriculture and its related occupations will discover the need for a formal education is now greater than ever. The investment in a modern agricultural enterprise is too costly to permit poor planning and preparation. Sound principles of production, management, and marketing are vital to the successful undertaking of an agricultural business. A broad spectrum of agriculture-related careers extends beyond the farm. Employers look to two-year technical colleges for qualified employees, and entrepreneurs look to the associate degree as a means to prepare them for ownership of an agribusiness.

Agribusiness Management prepares students for positions related to the agriculture industry by developing their knowledge of agriculture, business and economics. This program will enable graduates to obtain positions with large corporations, small business or government agencies. Those who desire to be self-employed may choose to own or operate a farm business. Academics combined with real world experience will prepare students for a variety of employment opportunities.
