Program description - January 2024

As the demand grows for food and cultivated products for consumer use, the need for individuals who can manage each step of the operation from farm to fork and everything in between grows with it. This program is for anyone who is looking for a strong understanding of the business of agriculture, from finance to agri-business concepts to human resources.

This Ontario College Graduate Certificate program will provide you with opportunities to develop the skills needed for managing the technologies, raw materials, suppliers, work force and other resources involved in agriculture to maximize profit while sustainably satisfying the needs of consumers for products. Through the examination of case studies for agri-business enterprises, guest lectures, and site visits, you will learn to identify effective ways to support agricultural products using current technologies and industry best practices.

Upon graduation, you will be prepared to enter the field of agricultural management, management in food processing, or quality assurance in food processing. Career opportunities include agriculture, agronomy, sales and service, finance, livestock, marketing, management, research, administration and advancements in Agri-technology.
