What Can You Do with an Agricultural Business Degree?

What jobs can you get with an agricultural business degree? Really, what can I do with an agricultural business degree?

These days, farming is big business, so big farms need people who are trained in both farming and business. (Small farms need these people too!) People who major in agricultural business usually go on to manage and/or own farms and ranches.

Some agribusiness degree holders manage only the finances of a farm—others are involved in the entire process. Some people who earn this degree go into sales and marketing. Some go into the food industry. Some go to work for the government, and some go on to graduate school.

Agribusiness graduates could end up working for themselves, for the USDA, for John Deere, or for Land O’Lakes. This major will lead to many opportunities, especially for those willing to relocate.
