Why Study Agricultural Business?

Located in the nation’s most productive agricultural state, California’s San Joaquin Valley is the single richest agricultural region in the world. The Agricultural Business degree from CSU Bakersfield is a home grown opportunity to become a leader in the agricultural industry.

The Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business is a '2+2' program that combines core upper division undergraduate courses in agricultural business at CSUB, with lower division agricultural science and agricultural business foundation courses completed at a community college. This degree enables students to enhance their foundation agricultural courses, completed at a community college, with upper division knowledge and skills so as to better prepare them for entry-level management positions in the agriculture and food sector.

Students learn the fundamentals of planning, organizing, marketing, financial management, and trade policy with an emphasis on California’s agriculture and natural resources.
