Introduction

Grow your business skills for a career in the increasingly complex agriculture industry.

The two-year Business - Agriculture Ontario College Diploma program combines agriculture with business and management training, providing you with the skills necessary to successfully operate a farming operation or to provide services to agricultural businesses. Agriculture is an increasingly complex industry, with sophisticated agribusiness managers required to make decisions about crop/herd selection and improvement, pest and soil management, equipment maintenance, farm safety, and agricultural production. At the same time, there is a growing need for skills and knowledge to apply management concepts related to agricultural financial administration, human resources, operational efficiency, government regulations, technology, sales, and marketing.

Through this program, you examine agricultural techniques through a business lens. With a focus on developing fundamental research, financial, and operations skills to evaluate farm production methodologies, technologies, and systems in order to inform business decisions. You have opportunities to apply your knowledge and skills through activities, simulations, case studies, and interactions with professionals in active farm operations.
