Agricultural business prepares you for a career as a decision maker who will apply business management concepts to agricultural businesses. The Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (B.S.A.) with a major in Agricultural Business (AGBS) offers students three concentration options. This allows students to better position themselves for opportunities in agribusiness management, agricultural marketing in both the domestic and international arenas, pre-law, public policy, and entry into graduate school.
