WHY HIRE A FOOD AND RESOURCE ECON GRAD?
Food and Resource Economics graduates are equipped to solve real-world business problems using economic reasoning and analyze complex situations such as the allocation of resources to meet the needs of people in their local community, state, nation, and the world. With a curriculum focused in management, marketing, sales, and finance graduates often are recruited for a wide variety of careers in a diverse range of industry fields. You are hiring a student who has not only received education in fields of topics related to economics, business, finance, and marketing, but one who has had hands on knowledge of these subjects in an natural resource agricultural focus.
