The International Agribusiness program at North Dakota State University includes course work in applied economics, quantitative methods, and international agribusiness strategy, management, finance, and marketing.
Students are required to have an international experience that may be satisfied by meeting one of three options:
- The student may participate in an international internship. Both paid and unpaid opportunities exist with international agribusiness companies, with government agencies, or with nonprofit organizations. The semester-long or summer internship can be arranged by the student or in cooperation with NDSU’s Office of International Student and Study Abroad Services. Internship programs will be defined by the student and his or her major adviser, and approved by the Graduate Program Committee (GPC) and the student's supervisory committee.
- Students may participate in graduate courses in business or agribusiness at an international university during a semester-long or summer study abroad program. Study abroad programs will be defined by the student and his or her major adviser, and approved by the GPC and the student's supervisory committee.
- Students may select at least six additional credits of coursework offered at NDSU related to international business or agribusiness. Courses must be approved by the student's supervisory committee as part of the student’s program of study prior to enrollment in the courses.
Students complete the program by writing and defending their comprehensive study papers under the supervision of their graduate committee.
