This program prepares students for careers in agribusiness or for transfer into agricultural business, agricultural economics and farm and ranch management programs. The field involves the application of business and economic principles to farming and ranching enterprises and related industries. Employment possibilities are available in businesses which process and market agricultural products, and those which sell products and services to producers. Additional opportunities exist in the operation of farms and ranches or in lending institutions. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
