The agricultural business minor gives students a broad understanding of marketing techniques, livestock and grain commodities, financing, and economics of agriculture. This undergraduate minor complements many of the agriculture-based majors, as well as business, such that students learn valuable information regardless of whether they work in lending, consulting, or sales, or run their own business.
