Mini-MBA in Agribusiness

Agribusiness is the business sector encompassing farming and farming-related commercial activities. It involves all the steps required to send an agricultural good to market, namely production, processing, and distribution. This industry is an important component of the economy in countries with arable land since agricultural products can be exported. Agribusiness treats the different aspects of raising agricultural products as an integrated system. Farmers raise animals and harvest fruits and vegetables with the help of sophisticated harvesting techniques, including the use of GPS to direct operations. Manufacturers develop increasingly efficient machines that can drive themselves. Processing plants determine the best way to clean and package livestock for shipping. While each subset of the industry is unlikely to interact directly with the consumer, each is focused on operating efficiently in order to keep prices reasonable.

Agribusiness is the complete value chain in agriculture, from the raw materials and resources necessary to create biological products to distributors and retailers that get products to end consumers. It can be separated into four links: input providers, producers, processors, and other service providers (such as marketers, distributors, etc.). Each link adds value to the output of the previous link until the biological material is consumed or used by the end consumer. According to the United Nations, global agriculture value-add is worth over $3.5 trillion annually, 4% of the world’s GDP, and 27% of the total workforce.
