Agri-business

The Agribusiness Program in the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences at Florida A&M University is an applied program integrating the principles of economics, business and management to the agricultural sector.

Our Bachelor degree program combines the business disciplines of management, accounting and finance with economics, statistics and the physical sciences of agriculture. No other program at Florida A&M University offers this rich mix of social and physical sciences with business, statistics and computer technology.

The minor in Agribusiness is intended to give students additional skills aimed specifically at businesses that produce, process or market agricultural products and commodities.
