Overview

The Master of Agribusiness (MAB) graduate degree program focuses on food, animal health and agribusiness management. Not an MBA in agribusiness, and not an M.S. in Agricultural Economics, this professional degree focuses on mid-level agribusiness managers who need to make informed decisions based on a thorough understanding of current agribusiness issues.

MAB courses are presented so that students integrate key analytical concepts while immediately applying what they have learned. Students complete company-related projects in many courses, solving issues for their firms. The applied focus of the degree is enhanced by the interaction of students employed in all segments of the food, animal health and agribusiness sector.

Course delivery: Online, DVD, online recitations, onsite (4 one-week on-campus sessions during the 2 and 1/2 year program)

Student Success

"The personal experience of my professors and instructors made it so much easier to understand their message and the content of the program. They talk from a business world perspective, not just from the academic view. I found that very helpful since I've been working professionally for a while." — Hamid Rutaro '15
