Sales and Marketing
Not only does sales and marketing emphasize sales, marketing, and management, it allows students to develop an area of specialization to prepare them for entry into an agriculture-related industry of their choice. A wide spectrum of farm supply industries, service firms, agricultural marketing organizations, and food manufacturing companies are marketing-oriented and depend extensively on agricultural graduates who are well-trained in marketing tools and concepts. This program provides the basis for entry into agri-marketing, leading to a professional career in agri-sales or marketing management.
