Course programme

What Will I Learn

Key business skills are developed through modules such as Planning, Budgeting and Control, which will allow you, towards the end of the course, to undertake a Business Case Study on a farm business, evaluating its performance and suggesting potential changes that could be made.

How Will I Learn

Classroom sessions are supplemented by visits to a range of agricultural businesses. Visits to farm businesses will concentrate particularly on examining the decision making process undertaken by the manager in determining their strategy. Opportunities are also given to use advanced software programmes for tasks such as livestock rationing.

Progression Opportunities
