Compared to the base major, this concentration requires departmental courses in rural real estate appraisal, agricultural law, futures/options markets, and commodity policy. This concentration builds in a Minor in Business Administration that includes courses in management, marketing, and finance. This concentration would be appropriate for students interested in working in some capacity within the finance, insurance, or real estate industries, or for the US Department of Agriculture agencies that administer the commodity and crop insurance programs.
