About Agricultural Business and Management at University of Reading

This course will enable you to become a successful manager or consultant within the agricultural sector.

The University of Reading is the highest ranking UK university and number 19 globally in the QS World University Rankings 2015 for this subject, with a longstanding reputation for excellence.

This is a multi-disciplinary degree programme combining the study of management with agricultural science, giving you an understanding of the economic and business principles that underlie management and its application to agricultural and other businesses. You will gain skills in critical observation and analysis of financial and business management systems to go along with practical knowledge and commercial expertise.

You will develop these skills through contact with a variety of industry professionals, with talks delivered by farm consultancies such as Savills, visits to a wide range of farming business and rural estates including Waitrose’s Leckford Estate and The Royal Farms. There are also opportunities to attend farming and rural conferences and seminars, and chances to network and build relationships while you learn.

In one of our most popular modules you will provide strategic advice to farm businesses. The businesses do listen to your opinion, and take note of your recommendations. You will also complete a week-long study tour to a different part of the country to look at different farming enterprises as part of this degree.

In the final year, your dissertation allows you to choose a subject that inspires and interests you. This could involve a farm, including your home farm, research at the University or an enterprise that you’ve had contact with during the course.

Outside of the curriculum, the student-run Agri-club runs the UK’s largest student conference. It gives you the opportunity to debate key issues like food security and self-sufficiency and get your voice heard.
