    Course Summary

    Agribusiness, Food Business and Agricultural Management is a huge field, and one in which skilled graduates are always in high demand. As global populations continue to rise and demands on agricultural production grow more and more intense, the need for highly trained agricultural business managers can only increase as well. 

    The University of Alberta’s BSc degree program in Agricultural Business Management is a merger of both food science and business & management content. You’ll learn how to manage plant, animal and soil resources in a business context, with an eye towards sustainability.

    This program is highly multidisciplinary. It is offered in partnership between the Alberta School of business and the university’s Faculty of Agricultural, Life and environmental Sciences. This ensures that your education is as cutting edge in the business context as it is in the scientific. In addition, it opens up the possibility of joining the School of Business’ Co-op program.

By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
