Agribusiness

Why major in Agribusiness?

Agribusiness is involved in 1 out of every 4 jobs in Nebraska and 1 out of every 5 nationally. Hastings College helps you step into the exciting world of agriculture — food production — through a partnership with Central Community College. This great partnership equips you with the decision-making framework of business administration and the technical aspects of today’s agriculture. 

Also, the liberal arts aspect of Hastings College provides a broad view, helping you understand current issues facing farmers, ranchers and other food producers; certainly this is an advantage when it comes to employment opportunities.

Because the Hastings-area’s economy is rooted in agriculture, we can provide leads to numerous internships and career opportunities, whether your interests are in farm management, crop and livestock production, marketing and sales, management, accounting, natural resource management or international trade.

At Hastings, you’ll build expertise and experience while preparing to leverage our network of alumni into a career in the dynamic and expanding Agribusiness industry. Apply today!
