The agribusiness value chain is one of Australia's largest and most important industry sectors. When considering the whole chain from production through to retailing the industry has an estimated value of $436 billion and employs approximately 1.4 million people (Source; Neil Clark and Associates). The Graduate Diploma of Agribusiness would provide students the opportunity to develop the conceptual skills necessary for agribusiness leadership, management decision making, policy analysis and problem solving in an ever-expanding and increasingly complex global food and agricultural marketplace. The program would consist of a core set of courses necessary for the development of general agribusiness management skills and the understanding of the global agri-food sector. The elective course allows some flexibility to tailor their program to their individual background and career objectives, including a wide range of individuals whose undergraduate education is not in agricultural business.

The Graduate Diploma in Agribusiness is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 1 year.
