Study Planner Information

What will I study?

The Bachelor of Agribusiness has been redeveloped for 2015 to ensure students have access to the best courses and facilities at UQ. Students will now complete courses at both the St Lucia (Brisbane) and Gatton campuses. Courses at St Lucia will be taught by the UQ Business School and courses at Gatton will be taught by the School of Agriculture and Food Science. Both of these Schools are ranked number one in Australia.

The BAgribus program will prepare you for a business career in the growing number of food and fibre industries. It is ideal preparation for business management positions in industries which demand graduates who are consumer focused, commercially aware, innovative, internationally orientated and technically competent.

You will learn about marketing, finance and managing people and technology along the agrifood value chain that links producers with consumers, as well as studying business courses in accounting, economics, and market research in an agribusiness context.

First year of the program is based at Gatton and St Lucia campuses. Students will complete 3 courses at St Lucia and 1 course at Gatton each semester in first year. The subsequent years are based at Gatton campus.
