University rank #356 (QS) Christchurch, New Zealand
The Commerce (Agricultural) programme at Lincoln University Canterbury is a specialised, industry-based research degree creating future leaders and managers in both the primary production and agribusiness sectors. 

About

Agriculture and related industries currently earn more than 50% of New Zealand's total export income. 

The sector consistently competes against, and beats, competitors in challenging, and protected, world markets. To do this the sector relies on a ‘practical professional' approach by those working within it - and Lincoln applies this to our teaching.

Education 

This way, students in the Commerce (Agricultural) programme at Lincoln University Canterbury learn not only how to successfully operate a farm business, but also about national and international issues that confront the agribusiness manager as a professional in one of New Zealand's most important sectors.
