Agricultural finance is concerned with the financing of agricultural-related activities, from production to market.
First year students planning a major in agricultural finance will complete two junior prerequisite units of study (12 credit points) in accounting and either econometrics or economics. In second year students complete intermediate study in corporate finance. Third year students will further their study in finance by selecting from senior units of study available. Fourth year specialised study is undertaken at a senior level in agricultural economics.
A major in agricultural finance will suit students with interests in both finance and agriculture. The career opportunities in agricultural finance span from assisting with loans to working in sales. Graduates will have a solid understanding of the requirements and challenges faced by farmers, in order to thrive in professional agricultural finance roles.
