Agribusiness Option
Associate of Applied Business


Students who select the Agribusiness option within MTC’s Associate of Applied Business (AAB) Business Management program will develop knowledge and skills that facilitate practical application as it applies to the business of farming.  Strong foundation in decision-making principles plus the option to customize agricultural focus through technical courses, strengthens the connection in preparing students for employment in commercial agriculture and businesses serving agriculture. MTC’s business management curriculum places a strong emphasis on developing graduates who are prepared to help organizations be successful in the face of everyday business challenges.

Our curriculum was built as a direct response to a community focus group made up of professionals in the agriculture field.  A rigorous focus on business management with a few specialized courses in Engineering, Science, and Information Technology makes this a great blend to get a start in the agribusiness field.
