What will I learn?

Agribusiness encompasses the entire food production system from paddock to plate, linking producers with consumers. It addresses global concerns such as food security and challenges to farming systems under a changing climate, shifting markets and increasing consumer awareness.

This course is the only Bachelor of Agribusiness offered in Western Australia. It will introduce you to the scientific and business principles that can be applied to agriculture.

You will gain scientific knowledge to develop an understanding of production systems and to apply problem-solving techniques to management strategies. You’ll be introduced to technologies used in soil, crop and livestock management systems.

You’ll engage in research-led activities, problem-solving and self-directed experiments using our field-trial site and glasshouse facilities.

You’ll work individually and as an integral part of a team, to develop your agribusiness risk and farm management skills. You’ll also have opportunities to develop links with industry experts and undertake field trips to research centres, agronomic field sites and farms.

This course includes a work placement to ensure you graduate with the science, technology and business skills you need for a thriving career in agribusiness. The placement can be with agriculture research, production or business industries locally or globally.
