Course Description

OR HoD approval.

This course develops ideas such as environment protection agri-innovation (future proofing), agri-management and finance (operational and strategic decision making) and agri-marketing (adding value to global products) making use of primary sector examples, visits and visiting speakers. It represents an exciting opportunity for students to understand the future of primary industries in New Zealand and its role in wealth creation for the country.
