What is Agricultural Business?

According to the University of Arkansas's Agricultural Business program, "The agricultural business major provides education suited to career opportunities in farm management, agricultural business management, and agricultural marketing in both the domestic and international areas.

Managers of farms and agricultural businesses are continually required to make organizational and operational decisions. The basic skills and knowledge needed for making sound decisions are provided by the agricultural business curriculum. Students may elect to specialize in areas compatible with their personal objectives, depending upon the extent of accounting and business orientation desired.

Students educated in agricultural business are in demand for positions in agricultural industries, farm operation, marketing agencies, agricultural service organizations, state and federal agencies, and numerous other positions. For those who go on to graduate school, teaching and research positions are available with land grant colleges as well as with other institutions."
