The Agribusiness Certificate is a one-year certificate designed to be an additional certification to build on other non-agriculture degrees. Individuals that want a degree in another field but also want some additional education in the Agribusiness field can complete their Agribusiness Certificate in one year.
A certificate in Agribusiness from Vincennes University will help prepare you for an entry-level job in the fertilizer industry, in farm management, or even in the seed business.
VU's Agribusiness program offers you a broad spectrum of agricultural related studies. You will develop a working knowledge in farm finance, crop production, management techniques, and computer applications. Laboratory work will provide you with valuable hands-on experience in pesticide selection, fertilizer planning, calibration of spraying devices, and more.
This program combines new concepts and technology with agricultural basics, so you are better prepared for the challenges facing the agriculture industry. Should you decide to continue your education, the credits you earn will count toward an Associate Degree in Agribusiness.
