What will I learn?

In the Bachelor of Agribusiness (International Agribusiness) you’ll learn about the global agri-food system. This includes everything from on-farm procurement in New Zealand to export and distribution of food and other agricultural products to consumers around the world.

You’ll learn about production sciences, agri-food value chains, manufacturing, distribution and logistics, international finance and the trade and marketing skills required to take New Zealand’s agri-food industry to the global marketplace.

Your learning will focus on real-world case studies and will include field trips to provide the experience sought by employers.

Practical experience while you study

During your degree you will gain a huge amount of practical experience. This experience will include at least 26 weeks of paid employment undertaken in agriculture and related sectors. That will give you an advantage with potential employers.
