Program description

The Associate Degree in Agribusiness is an industry-focused course aimed for people who want to learn everything there is to know about running a successful farm-based business from paddock to plate. It is an ideal stepping stone for those currently working in agriculture who wish to move into leadership and management roles, or a great foundation for those wishing to enter the industry.

The program combines business studies in management, finance, marketing and planning with technical studies in agriculture through a unique blend of online learning, face-to-face classes, practical workshops and industry placements. The course content has been developed in consultation with industry experts and they are actively involved in its delivery.

While the first year serves as a foundation year in agribusiness, the second year allows students to choose an employment-based pathway, specialisation pathway, or a pathway into a higher level of study.


In the second year of study, students can undertake a bachelor pathway, or choose to undertake a specialisation pathway in:

  • Dairy
  • Horticulture
  • Agriskills
  • Value chain management
Further study pathway

In the course of your foundation year, you may decide that you’d like to continue your education beyond the Associate Degree level. The further study pathway prepares you to undertake a bachelor degree after completing your Associate Degree. You’ll be eligible for two years of full credit into the University of Tasmania’s Bachelor of Applied Science (Agriculture and Business) or partial credit into another University of Tasmania bachelor program, subject to the Faculty's discretion.

The program is available for full-time and part-time study across all campuses in Tasmania.

Completing our Associate Degree in Agribusiness will give you:

  • a pathway to a great career in agriculture
  • strong commercial awareness of agribusiness industries
  • practical skills to take straight into the workplace
  • opportunities to advance in your chosen field
  • the skills to help you meet personal career development goals
  • credit towards a Bachelor Degree at the University of Tasmania.
