Summary

Prepare yourself for a successful business career in the rapidly changing agricultural industry.

The Bachelor of Agribusiness will teach you about the commercial side of agriculture, both in Australia and internationally. You'll cover all aspects of the growing, processing, trading and financing of food and fibres, and gain valuable transferable business skills.

Learn to market, finance and manage people and technology along the agrifood value chain linking producers with consumers. You'll acquire knowledge of agricultural value chains and all the business disciplines that apply in agribusinesses, including domestic and international marketing, commodity trading, human resource management, finance, supply chain management, sustainability and the e-technologies increasingly being used to drive efficiency in agriculture.

Experience city and rural living while you study at two campuses in your first year, in business courses at UQ St Lucia in the award-winning UQ Business School, and agriculture courses at UQ's specialist rural Gatton campus.

The Agribusiness program has been developed in close and ongoing collaboration with the Australian and overseas agricultural sectors. You'll learn from internationally respected business experts and graduate with the confidence that you'll find almost immediate employment within the food and fibre industries in managerial, administrative or research roles.
