The agribusiness industry is a hub of innovation, creating new and exciting value-added food and fibre products. It also oversees the management of critical inputs such as agricultural chemicals, machinery, human resources, and financial and advisory services for businesses in the supply chain.

The industry promotes environmental, social and economic sustainability, while driving the commercialisation of agricultural innovations and technologies.

As an undergraduate, you’ll study a broad range of topics in an agricultural context to discover the commercial world behind agriculture, its pursuit of sustainability and the value chain that links producers and consumers.

As a postgraduate, you’ll explore all aspects of the supply chain to confidently work with small- and large-scale producers, processors, transporters, financial institutions, and domestic and international retailers to deliver sustainable, high-quality agri-food products.
