As a student studying Agricultural and Food Business Management (AFBM), you will learn how to use economic concepts and management tools to effectively identify, analyze, and solve management problems for both small and large companies.

This major is jointly coordinated by CFANS and the Carlson School of Management, so you’ll benefit from access to professors, research, and resources from both colleges within the University of Minnesota. Students in this major have priority registration for classes at the Carlson School and can opt to pursue minors offered by the either college that align with their areas of specialization.
