AgriFood Sales - Minor

A minor in AgriFood Sales is essential for any student looking to pursue a career in professional sales, expand a strong network of industry representatives, and explore career development opportunities. Our mission is to develop emotionally intelligent sales professionals through industry partnerships, self-management and self-awareness application, and high impact learning environments. We are focused on developing qualified sales professionals that are easily recruited by reputable firms upon graduation.

Although there is an emphasis on AgriFood, we find that our students go into a wide variety of industries. The courses are applicable to tech, pharmaceutical, and other industries that do not fall under the agriculture umbrella. Our four video labs in the Agriculture and Life Sciences building allow students to review their simulated role-plays instantly with state of the art technology. This addition to any degree plan would offer a substantial high- impact learning experience.

Students must have declared a major, meet all the requirements for each course listed prior to enrolling in the course, have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, and must earn a grade of “C” or better in each required course to earn the minor degree.
