INTRODUCTION
Agribusiness constitutes the knowledge and principles of agriculture, science, economics and business for the production, processing and marketing of agricultural commodities. It exists on the foundation of the entire agricultural value chain extending from farm inputs, through on-farm businesses, to processing, transportation, credit and marketing. Within the agriculture industry, “agribusiness” is used simply as a blend of agriculture and business, referring to the range of activities and disciplines encompassed by modern food production. The Bachelor of Science Agribusiness Management offers a combination of Agricultural, business and Social Sciences required for the management of agribusiness and related institutions. The program offers better prospects for employment in the smaller and upcoming agro-industries that may not have the resources to employ specialists in Human Resource Management, Accounting, Production and Marketing. This program, among other objectives, aims to create a paradigm shift from government-driven production programme to market-centered business; from agricultural graduates looking for employment after college to agri-business innovators and job creators; from basic research to applied research among other transformations in the agriculture industry
