The Master of Agribusiness tailors each course to the industry and offers a global animal health industry elective to further customize the curriculum for the student. This will enhance students' management and strategic skills to help them deal with the challenges of the rapidly changing environment within the animal health industry.

The two, one-week on-campus sessions of the program are held at K-State's Olathe campus each August and October.
