It’s an exciting time to be an agricultural business student. In fact, one out of every six jobs in the American economy is related to agriculture and food businesses. So we’ve designed our agricultural business curriculum to provide you with the technical and business skills necessary to be successful in this dynamic field. Career opportunities in agribusiness range from managing a farm to working in the timber, banking, or publishing industries.
Alfred State agricultural business graduates may enter directly into either the agribusiness management BTech, interdisciplinary studies BTech, or the technology management BBA degree program.
Students have the opportunity to participate in the Collegiate Agricultural Leaders (CAL) Club, Collegiate FFA, Equestrian Club, Dairy Judging Team, Agricultural Skills Day, Spring Fling Consignment Sale, Community-Supported Agriculture projects, local foods projects, showmanship contests, and Sustainability Club.
Many schools, including Cornell University, grant full credit to students wishing to transfer to four-year programs.
A formal articulation agreement exists between Alfred State and Cornell University for transfer options.
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 75 percent are employed; 25 percent continued their education.
