Agribusiness combines agricultural science with business. You'll learn to help farmers improve their food production sustainably, and get the skills to develop, finance, market and manage agricultural businesses.

The commerce component is designed to develop responsible, engaged, innovative and work-ready graduates through providing students with opportunities to talk with business and work with business. The Bachelor of Commerce comprises an eight-subject common core and an eight-subject primary major, chosen from five key business disciplines of accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing.

In the agricultural sciences core you'll learn about the relationship between plants, animals, soil and climate. You'll also take on subjects such as plant science, land and soil management, animal physiology, pest control, and groundwater sustainability and contamination. By combining science with business skills, you'll be equipped to help farmers improve their food production and reduce the impact on declining resources.

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