Agribusiness Scholarships

The college major of agribusiness is also referred to as agricultural business. In this major you study the art and science of farm food production. In the paragraphs that follow, we will begin to explore this major as preparation for your research into the world of agribusiness scholarships.

In this field of study you learn all about the best practices involved with the production and marketing of food and other agricultural products. What surprises many agribusiness majors is the large amount of math they need to master as part of the degree program. You'll study statistics along with managerial accounting, agricultural finance and micro and macroeconomics. Other courses you may encounter include environmental law, international trade, farming technologies and information systems.

Some agricultural colleges offer concentrations within the major. Examples of these can include agricultural marketing, animal production or international agriculture. It is also common for agribusiness programs to offer internships. You should take advantage of whatever internship opportunities present themselves. This will give you a chance to gain valuable work experience and establish professional contacts all while receiving course credit. 

The employment prospects for agribusiness majors are relatively strong despite the continued consolidation of farming as an industry. Agricultural or farm managers are still in demand. Also, there is continual need for those with specialized training. These include graduates with experience in accounting, credit analysis, marketing and international trade.
