Agricultural Entrepreneurship Degree

Agriculture Entrepreneurship

In The College of Business

Stimulating Agricultural Innovation through Business,
Science and Leadership

“An Agriculture Entrepreneur is a person who organizes, manages and assumes the risk of an agricultural enterprise or agribusiness.”

The new Agriculture Entrepreneurship (AE) degree program is about developing and harnessing the Entrepreneurial Spirit! This spirit encompasses creativity, critical thinking, innovative problem-solving and the ability to change perceptions and enhance your future livelihood.

Agriculture needs innovative ideas and solutions to address the current and future issues of rural communities and livelihoods, food security, production and resource efficiencies, and changing climate patterns.  The future of agriculture needs you! 

The Agriculture Entrepreneurship program is designed to help you develop and refine the skills and knowledge required to take an active and leading position in many different aspects of agriculture.  While providing business and science fundamentals, the AE degree will allow you flexibility in refining your future agriculture interests and incorporate those interests into real-world, team-based experiential learning programs.  It’s all about understanding, collaborating, enacting, and refining the innovative process!  We want to make you an indispensable team member of any agricultural enterprise or agribusiness – either on your own or with a quality company!
