A degree in Agribusiness Management and Enterprise Development focuses on agribusiness and business development in nonmetropolitan regions. Agribusinesses in these regions tend to be smaller and more self-sufficient, which poses special challenges and opportunities. The program is also of interest to students seeking a career in rural enterprise development. The program offers training in the use of business, marketing, financial management, economics, and computer applications to address agribusiness management and small enterprise development in agriculture. This degree program combines knowledge of business management and agricultural systems with an understanding of how the market economy works and the appropriate role of government regulation.
