Message from the Chair

Mark Manfredo

Welcome to the Morrison School of Agribusiness at Arizona State University. I often like to say that “agribusiness is everyone’s business”. That is, the world is truly dependent on the organizations that produce, finance, and market the food, fiber, and energy products that sustain mankind. 

Today more than ever, cutting-edge business skills are  needed to navigate through the complex business and policy environment that defines the global food and agribusiness system. 

As the only agribusiness program in world that is a part of a top 30 business school, our curriculum builds on core business skills with specialized courses focusing on the unique aspects of food and agribusiness industry. Undergraduate students also have the opportunity to engage with industry professionals through a number of experiential learning opportunities, including student competitions and internships. We also boast the only 100% online bachelor’s degree in Food Industry Management, expanding our global reach.

Our award winning faculty conduct use inspired academic research that examines some of the most fundamental problems, and opportunities, facing the global food and agribusiness system today.  I invite you to meet our faculty, and learn more about their cutting-edge research. Our faculty are dedicated to scholarship, and enjoy both creating and sharing  knowledge in the classroom and beyond.
