The Agriculture Business program, offered by Greenville University, includes business and market plan development, entrepreneurial lab exercises, and participation in agricultural commodity market simulations. Funneling broadly grounded, faith-based backgrounds through an agribusiness focus is our competitive advantage over larger, more traditional agricultural programs.

The mission of a BS degree in agribusiness management is to prepare graduates to be the best qualified, most talented candidates for any position in an agriculture-related industry. The agribusiness management program is highly experiential and relies on financial and operational analytical tools to arm Briner agribusiness majors with the ability to provide compelling solutions in evolving real-time challenges. Built on a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ, students will also understand the meaning of being a “Roaring Lamb,” as described by the Briner School of Business namesake, Bob Briner.  Agribusiness management graduates will have the professional acumen to respectfully impress industry colleagues (as lambs) and the confidence to suggest innovative ideas to their employers (that roar).

Beyond the classroom, we encourage students to participate in practicums and internships. Juniors and seniors have the opportunity to serve in consulting roles for agribusiness companies through the Briner School of Business’ Experience Firstprogram.  Current agribusiness companies involved in Experience First are Rural King (Mattoon, IL), Eckert’s Orchard (Belleville, IL), and Rolling Lawn Farms(Greenville, IL).
