Postgraduate coursework in Agribusiness

Agribusiness is the study of consumers, retailers, marketers, and primary producers - and the business of keeping the chain working profitably.

The postgraduate coursework programs in Agribusiness meets the needs of three groups of professionals:

  • those working in agribusiness who wish to upgrade their management skills;
  • those wishing to redirect their careers into agribusiness;
  • new graduates in either business or agricultural/rural science wishing to add to their employment prospects.

Students have opportunities to enhance their knowledge, skills and practice; to develop their careers; and to deliver better and more profitable outcomes for Australian agribusiness. Students learn to locate, interpret, synthesize and apply information from a variety of sources. Graduates demonstrate a high level of specialised knowledge of agribusiness management, and business and communication skills associated with selected areas of study.
