Description of Agribusiness
Agribusinesses process and market food and fiber products, supply inputs to agricultural production, and manage agricultural
production. Agribusiness majors learn economic principles and strategies for agribusiness marketing and management. Students take
courses in agribusiness management, marketing, accounting, economic theory, communications, mathematics, computers, and
agriculture. Students learn decision-making skills for agribusiness management, finance, marketing, sales, processing, manufacturing,
transportation, and international trade. The agribusiness degree provides career flexibility for students planning to work in private
industry, government, or their own businesses. Agribusiness accounts for 15 percent of the nation's total economic activity. The
University of Georgia's agribusiness program is expected to play a major role in meeting the agribusiness education needs of the state,
region, and nation.
