Agribusiness Economics

With customizable programs and top-tier resources, our students explore the domestic and international economics of natural resource management. 


Our students don’t mind getting their hands dirty. Neither does our faculty. In fact, it’s kind of a requirement.

Research and Farms

From our 2000 acre working farm system to the Shawnee National Forest, our students and faculty actively engage in creative and cutting-edge research.
