Graduate Courses in Agribusiness Management

We found 19 masters and doctoral courses in agribusiness management being taught within the 66 agricultural economics programs that have graduate programs. Four of the courses have not been taught since 2001, three are cross-listed with an undergraduate course by the same name, and 10 of the courses are taught annually. The most common textbook used was Besanko et al.’s Economics of Strategy, which was used in eight courses. There was a variety of subjects taught in the courses but industry analysis, firm analysis, and financial concepts appeared to be the most common. The emphasis on written and oral communication skills is greater in these courses than most other courses taught at the graduate level. University of Missouri and Purdue University have separate courses for masters and doctoral students. Michigan State University offers a graduate certificate in agribusiness management for graduate students in other disciplines while University of Missouri has a unique curriculum built around organizational economics.
