About

The Agribusiness Economics degree at Southern Illinois University requires a core in agricultural business, statistics, economics or business and other courses as determined by the student's interest and faculty advisor.

Overview

Key Features

Through selected coursework and research, students may specialize in resource and environmental economics, economic and rural development, agribusiness management and finance, agricultural marketing and prices, farm production management, and international trade and agricultural policy.

A Agribusiness Economics degree at Southern Illinois University is awarded upon completion of required coursework with a minimum graduate grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale) in either of two options; a thesis or a non-thesis (research paper) option.
