The Agribusiness major (Bachelor of Science in Agriculture - BSA) prepares students for professional careers in agribusiness marketing, management and finance through combining in-depth business concepts with real-world application to the food and fiber industry. Agribusinesses process and market food and fiber products, supply inputs to agricultural production and manage agricultural production.
