Agribusiness is a sub-field of business studies, and like the name suggests, it deals with the business side of agriculture and corporate farming. Agribusiness focuses on studying the production, processing, and inventory of agricultural goods. Its focus is the management of agronomic equipment and technologies, raw materials, suppliers, work force and other resources involved in agriculture. Connected disciplines include: animal management, forestry and nature management, management of the living environment, agricultural economics, and rural enterprise.
Students get an insight into the processes of production and supply chain, from raw production to reaching the consumer, and all the stages in between: trade, management and consultancy, activities of businesses involved in horticulture and food chains. Agribusiness typically covers topics such as agricultural economics, farm product marketing, quality management, the sustainability of agricultural chains, agribusiness international marketplaces and others.
Agribusiness specialisations include international agribusiness and trade, food and agribusiness, international horticulture and marketing, agricultural entrepreneurship, agribusiness management, sustainable agribusiness and innovation, food marketing and retail.
