  The diverse agricultural background of each student in the MS-MBA in Food and Agribusiness program greatly adds to the learning experience. Since my life focuses around grapes and wine, it was interesting to learn about other segments of the industry through the real-life experiences that other students shared. This brought on a significantly different level of learning—it’s one thing to listen to a professor’s lecture or to read a chapter from a textbook, but learning from other students’ industry experience truly intensifies the lessons at hand, making them more meaningful.

This program changed my life on both a professional and a personal level. My class cohort became quite close over the two years that we spent in the program. Because all of the students in the program are employed in the food and agricultural sector, everyone is busy with work. Students are taking courses while managing things like harvest, holiday rushes, planting season, and tax season. During harvest, I relied on my teammates to get me through the program and the efforts were returned when my schedule slowed down.

The support that you receive from your fellow classmates in nothing like you will ever experience. When you join the MS-MBA program, your classmates become like another family. They are there to support you no matter what, and they understand what you are going through—even when your actual family doesn’t. It’s a bond that happens because each person is experiencing the same stress and pressure—your “school family” will support you through it all!

If you are ready for a life changing experience, this is it! The MS-MBA in Food and Agribusiness is hard work, but it will pay off!
