The Agricultural and Food Business Management (AFBM) program is no ordinary business major. Through coursework in the Carlson School of Management and the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, this program prepares students to pursue business-related careers in food and agriculture. Our students are skilled at applying economic principles to business and management challenges and at making evidence-based decisions to address those problems. Students are prepared to become leaders in the business community with strong critical thinking and communication skills. Students in AFBM have exclusive access to specialized minors in the Carlson School, allowing deep dives into fields such as finance and supply chain management.
