The Food and Resource Economics Department (FRED) focuses on teaching, research, and extension related to the food and agricultural systems in Florida. Graduates from our undergraduate programs go on to careers in sales, finance, management, economics and more, working with companies in the food sector, as well as with environmental and statistical organizations and businesses. Our Master of Agribusiness prepares students from other disciplines in agriculture and beyond for careers in business and industry. MS students choose between an agribusiness track that leads to business careers, or a thesis-track for those more interested in research careers or pursuing a PhD degree. And our PhD graduates take positions in Universities around the world, private industry, and government.
