Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness
The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Agribusiness prepares students for a career in the growing agribusiness sector of the economy. Expanding export opportunities also are increasing the need for graduates to fill positions in agribusiness. The degree program is administered by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Students enrolled in the program receive academic advising from the Department of Agricultural Economics.
An agreement between the College of Agriculture and Life Science and Mays Business School limits the total number of undergraduates enrolled in Agribusiness to 400. Students in the BS Agribusiness degree program will take selected coursework in the Mays Business School.
The Agribusiness program combines selected Core Business Knowledge classes from a degree in business with coursework emphasizing the understanding of unique institutional and managerial challenges facing agribusiness firms. By integrating business management principles with applied technical knowledge, students develop practical decision-making skills to address challenges facing agribusiness firms in the production, processing and distribution of food and fiber in Texas, the nation and the world.
The freshman admission, on-campus change-of major, off-campus transfer admission and readmission processes for the Agribusiness major are coordinated by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Department of Agricultural Economics and Texas A&M University’s Office of Admissions.
