Abstract

The required courses for agribusiness degrees at forty-three school were divided into six categories. Large ranges in the percentage of required credits by category were found. Comparisons with other curricula surveys showed that some changes occurred during the last ten to twelve years. Emphasis on business skills has increased while course work in technical agriculture has decreased. By considering customer needs and competitor innovations, departments can attempt to add more value to their educational products.
