What kinds of career options would be open to me?

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The key word here is variety. Food and Agricultural Business graduates work throughout the agri-food system, from the input supply sector (e.g., as a manager of a local farmers cooperative store or a marketing representative with an agricultural machinery manufacturer) to the food retail sector (e.g., as a manager of a food supermarket). In between the two ends of the agri-food system are many other career opportunities (e.g., as a loan specialist, an insurance agent, a manager of a food processing plant, or a marketing representative with a food distributor). Graduates also work for agricultural commodity organizations and public agencies at the local, state and federal level. And many graduates pursue careers with companies or organizations outside the agri-food system. For more information check Careers.
