The NEBRASKA difference

We are the first Agribusiness Program nation-wide between two colleges, combining Business Administration and Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. We are also rank as one of the top three programs in terms of undergraduate curriculum and student activities. An International Study minor builds a strong understanding of agriculture and natural resources on a global scale for the students, and the Annual Industry Tour provides networking contacts with professional leaders in the agribusiness industry.

There are readily available internship experiences for students which provide valuable real-world learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom setting, and students greatly benefit from a one-on-one working relationship with faculty advisers and mentors—through advising, research projects, and campus jobs.

We are also home to the UNL National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) and were named outstanding chapter nation-wide in 2007, 2006 and 2005!

Agricultural Economics/Agribusiness Club (AEAC) provides networking opportunities with agribusiness professionals, faculty and other students nation-wide. The Nebraska AEAC Quiz Bowl Team has placed in the top five teams three of the last four years, and UNL has had the top undergraduate student two of the past four years.
