Curtin is the only WA university to offer a Bachelor of Agribusiness, providing a unique opportunity to understand both science and business as applied to agriculture. To satisfy the growing demand for food worldwide, we need smarter ways of producing food and fibre using sustainable production methods, innovation and responsible entrepreneurship. In this course you will engage in research-led activities, problem-solving and self-directed experiments using our field trial site and glasshouse facilities. You will work both as an individual and as an integral part of a team to develop your agribusiness risk and farm management skills.

Curtin University provides a unique combination of agricultural science and agribusiness with options in spatial science, data analytics, supply chain management and business management.

Become a part of the solution to developing challenged in domestic and global goof and fibre production. Future productivity improvements rely on skilled graduates undertaking high-impact research and an ability to adopt new and innovative technologies. Develop networks across the agricultural sectors by participating in work experience and field tours.

Opportunity to link to world-class research programs including the GRDC- funded Centre for Crop Disease Management, post-harvest horticulture, aquaculture management and rehabilitation of degraded land. A strong demand for skilled professionals from paddock to plate, with job opportunities currently greater than available graduate numbers.
