The Agricultural Mechanization and Business major provides a program for students who desire training in areas relevant to dynamic agricultural enterprises. The program is organized with strength in both business management and technical support of agriculture and agribusiness. To produce well rounded individuals with good communication skills, the curriculum includes courses in the humanities, social sciences, English composition, and public speaking.
Graduates in Agricultural Mechanization and Business find meaningful and remunerative employment in a variety of situations directly and indirectly related to agricultural production, processing, marketing, and the many services connected therewith. Farming and technical sales in the agricultural, industrial, and heavy equipment industries are frequently chosen careers.
By completing this curriculum, graduates will have fulfilled the requirements for an Agricultural Business Management minor or other selected minor. Contact the Enrolled Student Services Office to have the minor recorded.
