This course is designed to give an overview of the career possibilities available to students with a degree from the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University. The goal of the course is to help students think about their future, engender excitement about the diversity of career prospects that will be available to them, and help provide real-world context for the material that will be learned in other Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics courses. Students will learn from individuals working all along the farm and food value chain from agricultural input supply to farming to transportation and storage to food processing to food retailing, in firms ranging from start-ups to multinational corporations. Additionally, students will learn from individuals working in affiliated careers from government, law, education and non-governmental organizations, etc. as well as from some who are no longer working in food and agriculture.
