Agriculture Business
Area of Study

Agriculture Business

Why Agriculture Business instead of a general business degree? Business is a broad category, but employees who understand business as it relates to agriculture are in high demand.

Agriculture programs at Northeastern pave the way for rewarding careers, whether it's with an Associate's degree, a Bachelor's degree, or for those already actively working in the industry.

Agriculture Business Transfer Degree

For students who want to earn credits required toward a Bachelor's degree or higher, the Agriculture Business Transfer program positions them for moving on to a four-year program. Students acquire a combination of fundamental agriculture and business knowledge derived from hands-on activities and disciplines involved with modern practices of food production.

An Agriculture Business degree enables students to understand and apply the economics, management, marketing and finances of business. Graduates leave with practical knowledge of the technical processes involved with profitably getting agricultural products to market.

Agri-Business Degree

This degree is for students who want to earn an Associates of Applied Sciences Degree and and plan directly enter the workforce upon graduation. The program includes 60 credit hours of agriculture-related business courses and an eight-credit internship.

It is a comprehensive two-year retail agricultural and input/supply business management program with highly technical coursework based on industry standards. Agriculture leaders in the community serve as advisory committee members to help guide the program.

The U.S. bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers will experience little to no change from 2016 to 2026. Efficiencies of large-scale crop production in recent decades have led to consolidation of arable acreage among fewer, but larger, farms. As farms become larger, they are able to invest more in productivity-enhancing technologies, which, in turn, reinforces this effect.

Despite steady demand for agricultural products, many small farms operate with slim profit margins that make them vulnerable to dire consequences of poor market conditions. The Bureau projects the number of smaller farms will consequently continue to shrink over the next decade.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the median annual wage for farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers was $67,950 in May 2018.

I love studying agriculture business because of the versatility. In my classes I learn a wide array of topics from all fields including non-agriculture industries.
