  As one of the few animal scientists in a crop-focused organization, I realized I would need to broaden my skills to grow within the company. This program allowed me to specialize in agricultural economics, while also earning the highly coveted MBA degree. The focus on both agriculture and general business broadened my knowledge of the agriculture industry while being exposed to new ideas and real-world experiences from my MBA classmates. Earning two degrees at once is a powerful combination, and these two complementary degrees can be used in virtually any industry. This program combines degrees from top-quality universities with online flexibility. Investing the time and money into your education is a huge commitment, so I wanted to earn respected degrees, not just pieces of paper. There are many online MBA programs, but none offers the same combination of academic rigor and convenience as the Purdue-Kelley MS-MBA.
