Course summary

Business Economics will provide students with a solid understanding of the fundamental tools of economic analysis that are employed to conduct rigorous study of economic issues and economic policies. This programme is a much applied field covering many topics beyond those stereotypically thought of as pertaining to economics. These may include finance and risk management, environmental and natural resource economics, game theory, or public policy analysis.

Governments and multi-national companies look to the analytical skills of trained economists to help provide solutions to complex problems. This course blends the distinctive characteristics of practice-driven education in an international context. It is innovative in its provision by incorporating elements of the existing subject areas of agricultural economics, finance, accounting, econometrics, supply chain management and agribusiness management.

The course will provide participants with an advanced understanding of the global challenges and opportunities as well as principles of Applied Economics, Business Economics and practices of modern international agri-business management. It will promote innovation in the application of science and technological advances within the global agri-food chain and the wider rural sector. Finally, it will develop professionals in industries in the agri-food sector. These include agricultural supply industries, agricultural trade industries, agricultural cooperatives, agricultural consultancy companies, marketing, general management, finance, policy and consultancy in private, commodities markets, education, the financial sector, government, natural resource and environmental management, real estate, public relations, public and non-government organisations nationally and internationally.

By focusing on a variety of management and decision issues relevant to the agri-food sector in an ever changing international environment, students will develop and broaden their expertise, build critical skills and enhance their career prospects in the agri-business sector.

Both academic studies and the nature of the course in preparing students for a profession in the agri-food sector are enhanced by the close links of Harper Adams University and the land, farm and agribusiness management course team with industry.
