Bachelor of Agribusiness

Prepare yourself for a successful business career in the rapidly changing agricultural industry.

The Bachelor of Agribusiness will teach you about the commercial side of agriculture, both in Australia and internationally. You'll cover all aspects of the growing, processing, trading and financing of food and fibres, and gain valuable transferable business skills.

Learn to market, finance and manage people and technology along the agrifood value chain linking producers with consumers. You'll acquire knowledge of agricultural value chains and all the business disciplines that apply in agribusinesses, including domestic and international marketing, commodity trading, human resource management, finance, supply chain management, sustainability and the e-technologies increasingly being used to drive efficiency in agriculture.

Experience city and rural living while you study at two campuses in your first year, in business courses at UQ St Lucia in the award-winning UQ Business School, and agriculture courses at UQ's specialist rural Gatton campus.

The Agribusiness program has been developed in close and ongoing collaboration with the Australian and overseas agricultural sectors. You'll learn from internationally respected business experts and graduate with the confidence that you'll find almost immediate employment within the food and fibre industries in managerial, administrative or research roles.

Program highlights

  • Join one of Australia's leading agribusiness programs and learn from internationally respected business experts.
  • Enhance your studies with practical experiences including case studies, research projects and agribusiness site visits.
  • Benefit from a program developed in close collaboration with the agricultural sector, both here and internationally.

Campus Information

St Lucia

Situated on 114 hectares of Brisbane River-bound land, UQ’s main campus is a vibrant mix of majestic sandstone buildings and contemporary architecture, landscaped gardens and lakes. Fanning out from the heritage-listed Great Court, you’ll find modern teaching and research facilities, including laboratories, lecture theatres, and Queensland’s largest research library. The expansive grounds are also home to a variety of sporting facilities, museums, cafes, and those famous Jacaranda trees. The St Lucia campus is only seven kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, making it an appealing place to study, work or visit.

Gatton

Gatton, UQ’s rural campus, is located in the Lockyer Valley, 87 kilometres west of Brisbane’s city centre, and halfway between Ipswich and Toowoomba. On this sprawling campus, which dates back to 1897, you’ll find world-class teaching and research facilities in agriculture, animals, veterinary science and the environment. It’s also a working farm, with more than 1000 hectares of dairy, pig, crop and grazing units, as well as post-harvest facilities and greenhouses. Gatton’s agricultural learning facilities sit against a backdrop of historical homesteads, sporting amenities, and community fruit and vegetable gardens.
