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 resource, 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 an FIM student, you'll take 18 credit hours of upper-division courses 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 a different issue in where theoretical approaches, analytical methods, and industry practice are unique to the food industry. Such industry-specific skills and understanding cannot be obtained in a traditional business degree.
The BA in business with a focus on food industry management program has been developed in close coordination with partners in the food industry to help ensure you'll have the knowledge and skills needed to become an immediate leader in the field.
