Master of Science-Master of Business Administration / Food & Agribusiness Management
Purdue University

Program Details

Food is big business.  From crop production to distribution logistics to sales, it takes a mastery of business skills and a solid foundation of agricultural practices to successfully keep grocery aisles stocked and consumers’ pantries full.  A dual MS/MBA in Food and Agribusiness Management from Purdue University can give you the depth of knowledge across both of these disciplines.  In this online graduate program, you can earn an MS in Agribusiness from Purdue, while earning your MBA from the Kelley School of Business of Indiana University.  Combining both of these areas can give you a competitive advantage, whether you work for a large food conglomerate or manage your family farm.  Apart from a core business curriculum, subjects that you will likely cover include:

  • Agricultural finance
  • Benefit-cost analysis
  • Organization of agricultural food markets
  • Agricultural trade theory
  • International agribusiness market opportunities


This program requires five, one-week residency sessions, which includes an international experience.
