During Year 13 I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in agriculture with the plan of one day owning my own sheep and beef farm. I completed a Bachelor of AgriCommerce as this course offered a wide range of skills that kept my options open for various job opportunities, as it included both agribusiness and science-based papers. In my final year, I applied for the FMG Graduate Programme and was given a role as a Mobile Rural Consultant.
This is an out-in-the-field role working with farmers and lifestylers alike, where I provide risk management advice and recommendations regarding their insurance requirements. FMG is a fantastic organisation and has a comprehensive Graduate Programme, which teaches you many skills which you can then go out and apply.
New Zealand’s agribusiness sector is flourishing, and there is strong demand for graduates, from running large farm-based businesses through to international trade. Massey's AgriCommerce programme is cognisant of the most recent developments in both business and primary production, because we actively research in all our subjects. Therefore, you'll have the knowledge and foundation skills for several career paths.
There are a number of scholarships available for those planning to study AgriCommerce.
