W. P. Carey School of Business - Morrison School of Agribusiness

There is a growing demand for professional management in an industry that is becoming increasingly competitive, sophisticated and global. As a food industry management student, you'll learn mission-critical skills in applied finance, strategy, marketing, human resources and supply chain management necessary for success in any food-related enterprise. You'll be able to identify problems and opportunities arising in the chain and articulate your recommendations to appropriate stakeholders.

As a food insdustry management student, you'll take a number of courses covering topics specific to the food industry, including food advertising and promotion, microeconomic analysis of food markets, food supply networks, food retailing and food product innovation and development. Every course addresses theoretical approaches, analytical methods and industry practices unique to the food industry. Such applied skills and understanding cannot be obtained in a traditional business degree.

The BA in business with a concentration in food industry management has been developed in close coordination with partners in the food industry to deliver the knowledge and skills needed to become an immediate leader in the field.
