Characteristics Of Master'S Programs In Agribusiness Management
This study describes and compares agribusiness masterÂ’s programs in North America. These programs include the master of business administration (MBA) and master in (or Â“ofÂ”) agribusiness (MAB) degrees. Accredited MBA programs with an agribusiness emphasis are required to have a clear required core of courses in finance, management, marketing management, and human behavior. Additional required courses in policy, agricultural marketing, production or managerial economics, and quantitative methods are also frequently required. MAB programs have more diversity regarding the four core subjects with a greater percentage of the courses taught within departments of agricultural economics. Evaluation of agribusiness masterÂ’s programs in agricultural economics departments is difficult without any formal evaluation criteria.
