New Food and Agribusiness major to commence at Warrnambool

Agribusiness companies including the major accounting and financial institutions are seeking graduates with critical business capabilities from resource management, agritech to skills in managing global climate challenges across the agricultural supply chain.

According to a 2016 Food and Agribusiness data profile by the Federal Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the gross value added of the sector was worth $53.9 billion, with approximately 178,500 businesses.

Furthermore the Australian Skills Shortage List published in March 2017 by the Federal Department of Employment, lists the occupation of ‘Agricultural Consultant/Scientist’ as one of 41 occupations nationally experiencing shortages or recruitment difficulties.

There is a clear demand for tertiary-qualified graduates to fill a variety of business and management roles in food, fibre and agribusiness.
