They'll be part of a business administration degree

The University of Southern Indiana will soon offer a business degree program including a focus on agriculture. WNIN’s Sarah Kuper has more on the new program:

Beginning this fall, USI’s Romain College of Business will add five courses to its business administration degree, all having to do with agriculture.

They include agricultural economics, marketing, finance and farm and ranch management plus other approved courses.

According to the university, the classes will appeal to a new set of potential students – those interested in the business side of an industry bringing food and goods to the table.

Officials say it will be a chance for students already pursuing business degrees to make themselves more marketable to potential employers by adding expertise in the agricultural sector, especially in the state of Indiana – the 10th largest farming state in the US.
