While food and fibre production is a large component of the Australian agribusiness sector, getting that produce into the hands of consumers requires an extensive supply chain, including packaging, distribution, and related sectors such as finance, insurance and risk management, as well as governmental policy.

Agribusiness studies emphasises the business, process, and entrepreneurial side of the global agriculture enterprise. 

Your studies combine agriculture production with marketing, economics, management and distribution, providing multidisciplinary skills that will equip you to work in a variety of careers, from the family farm to multinational companies.

Our campuses have unparalleled access to Tasmania’s natural environment and thriving agricultural sector, enabling you to explore key questions about sustainable resource management and productive landscapes. 

Beyond our location, you will be learning from our dynamic team of researchers at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture, many of whom are internationally renowned and exporting best practices in sustainable agriculture from Tasmania to the world.


The University of Tasmania collaborates closely with industry and organisations – both locally and internationally – to give you exciting, challenging opportunities to further your career and to contribute to the local and global community.

We have been closely entwined with the Tasmanian state government for many years through the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA), helping ensure best practice and cutting edge technology and production in all aspects of agribusiness.
