This minor or certificate aims to prepare students for careers in the food and agriculture sectors: marketing management, human resources management, operations management, product management, customer service, food service management, sales management, farm ownership, farm and ranch management, agribusiness development managers, sales directors, agricultural supply management, district grocery store management, food manufacturing sales representative, and employee relations managers. Students are also prepared for community nonprofit organizations and government, state, or local agencies, in the food and agriculture sectors.
America’s food and agriculture sectors are responsible for almost one-fifth of the nation’s economic activity (more than 13% of US employment)
The Applied Agribusiness Technology minor or certificate aims to help students learn about the key role that technology and data skills play in the operation of agribusinesses, at the regional, state, and/or national levels. Students have the opportunity to gain a strong foundation of programming and data management skills in food production, growing, processing, packaging, transportation, and/or sales/marketing. This program helps students understand how agribusiness tech and data analytics can make the food and agricultural industries more efficient, sustainable, transparent, and able to respond quickly to the rapidly shifting consumer behavior/demand. The coursework provides students with a solid foundation in data acquisition, data management, data visualization, data usage, including GIS - geographic information systems, and data-based decision making, all of which contribute to better, more efficient, and sustainable food and agricultural decisions. This will prepare students for a wide range of agribusiness technology careers; specifically, the program is designed to offer three career tracks, depending on students’ interest - i.e., farm/growing data track, agribusiness operations data track, and marketing/sales intelligence track. Students will use their Python, big data visualization, SQL, GIS, business analytics, and/or econometric/forecasting modeling skills to help the farming, processing, packaging, transportation, and/or marketing/sales side of agribusiness.
