As a serious agribusiness major, you won't ever be fenced in. The dedicated faculty at Sul Ross prepare you for working across many types of careers in a global industry. Everything involved in agriculture, from the production of food, the trade and distribution of livestock and agriculture products to the financial well-being of agricultural producers and markets falls under agricultural business. Our program gives students the fundamentals of agricultural science, and builds on it to prepare them for the unique challenges of this growing field. Graduates can pursue careers in consulting, agricultural finance, international trade, and in many other areas, OR they can also develop entrepreneurial skills to start their own businesses in the agricultural sector. Whether students want to get back to the family farm with new, enhanced management skills or work in the stock market managing agribusiness futures contracts, they will develop their learning in a specialized, hands-on learning environment. Here, you get the attention you need to thrive in agricultural business. Dr. Ryan O'Shaughnessy is the advisor for Agricultural Business Program.
