Based in the heart of the Australian food, wine and agriculture industry, the Master of Agribusiness program from University of Adelaide is the first in Australia to provide the elite level of education required to create future food and agribusiness leaders through its unique mix of business fundamentals, practical experience and global connections.


With growing global populations and climate challenges impacting our ability to feed the world sustainably, our master degree prepares you to meet these challenges, and equips you for leadership and problem-solving in an ever-expanding and increasingly complex global marketplace.

What will you do?

Our Centre for Global Food and Resources has conducted extensive research with some of Australia’s leading agribusiness firms to develop a program that effectively integrates academic knowledge with industry application.
