The Master of Global Food and Agricultural Business connects you with a network of world-class academics, policy experts and agribusiness leaders, setting you on the path for a rewarding career in the agricultural industry.
As the global population heads towards 9 billion by 2050, the demand for food and water grows while basic resources fall under threat; we need to ensure that our economic, public, and environmental health can cope with these rising demands.
Why not be part of the solution and build a skillset that will allow you to contribute to solving the critical issues affecting the security of our food and resources.
The Master of Global Food and Agricultural Business bases you in Australia’s agricultural hub, amongst world-class researchers, primary producers, and agribusiness leaders, to develop the skills needed to make an impact on global resource sustainability.

Where will this take you?
