Ne öğreneceğim?

A Ph.D. degree in agricultural economics prepares you for a rewarding career in academia, agricultural business, government or international agriculture.

Programs focus on:

Business management, organization, contracting, governance and strategy.
Collective action and cooperative theory.
Econometrics and price analysis.
Environmental economics.
Food and agricultural policy and regulation.
Food production, distribution and consumption and sustainable agriculture.
Natural resource use.

The graduate program at MU is recognized for its innovative approach to graduate training in agricultural economics. A distinguishing feature of the program is the integration of organizational, institutional and welfare economics in both applied and theoretical research. This approach gives the program a competitive advantage.

Graduate students have the opportunity of working with leading scholars engaged in a diverse range of challenging research projects that develop new knowledge about state, national and international agricultural issues.

The PhD program emphasizes preparation for research, teaching and extension work in academia, as well as for careers in agrifood business, government and international agriculture. The program usually requires about three years beyond the master's program to complete. The size, quality and diversity of the faculty provide a broad choice of advisors and research topics. Students and their advisory committees have latitude in developing a plan of study.

During the first year in the program, the Ph.D. core consists of courses in economic theory and quantitative methods. During the second year, students select their fields of specialization. During the third year, students conduct their dissertation research. Progress in the Ph.D. program is assessed in part through written qualifying and comprehensive exams testing competency of the Ph.D. core and the student's chosen field of specialization.
