Be a leader of agribusiness

Based in the heart of the Australian food, wine and agriculture industry, our Master of Agribusiness program 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. This degree will help you refine the practical research, advisory, and business skills necessary for a successful career in food and agricultural related industries.

You will

  • complete a capstone research project that lets you showcase the skills you have learned across the program

Where could it take you?

The agribusiness value chain is one of Australia’s largest and most important industry sectors. Recognised by the Australian Industry Skills Councils as a priority skill, agribusiness is forecast to continue providing positive labour outlooks for years to come.
