BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONS) AGRIBUSINESS

 

ABOUT

 

Bachelor of Science (Hons) Agribusiness is designed to provide you with an understanding of how to apply business principles to real-world issues and opportunities in the agricultural and life sciences industries. This interdisciplinary approach allows you to focus on business basics, such as marketing and finance, with specialties related to the multibillion-dollar primary production industry.

 

A rapidly growing global population and the constraints of finite resources require a more savvy approach to the business of food production and food marketing. Likewise, the increasing sophistication and purchasing power of consumers throughout the world means an increasing demand for a diverse range of high quality products. Students will gain a contextual understanding of the global agribusiness and food marketing sectors to meet this demand.

 

The course also offers field trips and practical placements to ensure you graduate with the science, technology and business skills you need to thrive in agribusiness. This course provides a unique opportunity to understand both science and business as applied to agriculture.

 

Agribusiness can lead to many opportunities. Graduates can serve in many industries and organisations including running their own business and have a strong fundamental agribusiness training, critical thinking skills and problem solving abilities.
