Why Agribusiness?

A recent USDA/Purdue study found that 57,900 jobs per year will be open to people with a bachelor's degree and expertise in food, agriculture, renewable natural resources, or the environment. Half of those jobs will be in management and business. The study projects there won't be enough graduates to fill that demand. That's where you come in!

Why Nebraska?

In the Department of Agricultural Economics, you get the best of both worlds. You'll attend a world-class, Big Ten university and have access to all the academic resources and activities that come with it. At our East Campus location, you get a small-school atmosphere with one-on-one personal advising and a community that cares about you. At Nebraska, we believe in the power of every person. And we don't rest on our strengths — we stretch them.
