Lincoln (Neb.) - July 27, 1998 - The University of Nebraska- Lincoln will offer a master of business administration degree with a specialization in agribusiness in a joint project of the College of Business Administration and the department of agricultural economics in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
"There are very few colleges and universities that offer this type of joint degree to their students," said Dennis Conley, professor of agricultural economics and joint agribusiness committee chairperson. "The program of study blends a traditional MBA curriculum with specialized courses in agricultural economics that help prepare graduates to enter middle management positions in the agribusiness industry."
Students will have the benefit of a tradition in agribusiness education that dates to 1983, coupled with an MBA program recently recognized as one of the 13 most efficient programs in the country. Chancellor James Moeser has designated the agribusiness program as one of the university's areas of excellence.
The MBA in agribusiness is for both traditional students and non-traditional students who want master's- level education in business with a specific focus on the food and agricultural sectors of the economy. It is a professional degree designed to serve people working in private industry, government or nonprofit organizations.
