Required courses for agribusiness degrees at forty-three schools were divided into six categories. The ranges in the percentage of required credits by category were quite large. Industry leaders, alumni, and employers have suggested increasing the course work on communications and business skills to improve the curricula.

Departments should consider customer needs and competing programs as they review their curricula and attempt to add more value to their educational products.
