Agricultural Economics Groups
The Agribusiness Club brings together undergraduate students and local and national agricultural business leaders to promote the understanding of the business of agriculture and to give students an opportunity to learn many of the facets of agriculture that show up in almost all areas of our lives. By regularly meeting with these agribusiness leaders, students have a better understanding of the diversity of career opportunities in agriculture and what qualities and skills will be needed to succeed.
