agricultural economics, ag busineess, econ programs
This paper assesses both faculty and alumni expectations of future agricultural economics programs by reviewing the results of two surveys, one completed by each group. In general, faculty and alumni agree about the areas of greatest curriculum and/or resource need, but there are some differences. In the future, departments will continue to be challenged to balance their curriculum between what students want (agribusiness) and what they need (basic education).
