GROW A CAREER IN AGRIBUSINESS
Agribusiness involves one in every four jobs in Nebraska and one in every five jobs in the U.S. Our joint program between the College of Business and the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) is designed to give you the educational background you’ll need to have a successful career in the dynamic and rapidly changing world of agribusiness. The first of its kind in the U.S., the program blends the technical competence of modern agricultural and food systems with the decision-making framework of business. You should enroll in the program through the College of Business if your interest lies primarily in the business side of this industry.
