Demand for agribusiness professionals is growing, and you can start your career as a graduate participating in today's diverse and globally integrated agribusiness sectors, from farm to multinational companies.

This course offers you the opportunity to complete a major in Agribusiness alongside a disciplinary major in Management & Marketing or Accounting. Providing you with a solid understanding of business, economic and financial concepts for agricultural and associated businesses you will be ready and able to address the real issues facing agriculture and business within a changing international environment.

A feature of the course is a series of three agribusiness subjects each delivered at different regional campuses, providing you with a unique insight into different agribusinesses in different regions of Victoria. The course has a work integrated learning subject which will provide you with the opportunity to complete an agribusiness industry based work placement, where you will apply and demonstrate the skills you have acquired through the course.

In effect the course takes you on a state wide tour of regional Victoria agribusinesses industries and communities, where you will meet, talk and work with local agribusiness and community leaders.

Graduates are in high demand by industry businesses and government agencies: in agribusiness management, sales and marketing, export, commodity trading, supply chain, manufacturing and other diverse roles.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.

Advanced Standing - Credit for prior study

Advanced Standing is the recognition of previous study or learning that can be counted towards a qualification. This can reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course. The amount of credit received depends on the level and relevance of your previous tertiary study and the number of subjects completed. The University will designate courses where there is only admission into Year 1 of the course. In these cases, there is limited advanced standing.

To check if this course is available for advanced standing, please visit the Advanced Standing webpage.
