You Won't Be Disappointed

Purdue University's reputation of excellence in agriculture coupled with a world-renowned faculty make the Center for Food and Agricultural Business the best place for you to advance your career.

Founded in 1869 as part of the Morrill Land Grant Act, Purdue is located in West Lafayette, Ind. It is one of the nation’s leading research institutions. The Purdue College of Agriculture is known as a leader in agricultural education and was ranked No. 6 in the world by Quacquarelli Symonds, a British company that specializes in information about higher education and careers.

Purdue established its Department of Agricultural Economics in 1920. Its faculty members are world renowned for their research in all areas of economics. In 2009, the department was ranked No. 9 by IDEAS (Internet Documents in Economics Access Service), the world’s largest bibliographic database dedicated to economics.

Since 1986, Purdue’s Center for Food and Agricultural Business has developed and delivered non-degree management education programs to more than 11,000 food and agribusiness managers from around the world. The center’s industry contacts expressed a need for a graduate degree program in management that focused on the food and agriculture industry, in addition to offering a global perspective that would develop effective leaders in an increasingly complex food and agricultural marketplace. As a result, the center created the MS-MBA in Food and Agribusiness Management.

However, through my experience in the program it was one of the best features as you could utilize the material over and over again. In fact, I continue to go back and listen to lectures to refresh my skills on subjects that are pertinent to my current position. The delivery of material which consisted of the online coursework and residency sessions provided the best learning experience that I have encountered academically.
