About this course

The dual four-year program allows students to combine practical business skills with their interests in equine science.In the equine science component of the program students will study the nutrition, reproduction, exercise physiology, health and rehabilitation, welfare and behaviour of horses and explore the interaction of horse and rider. This scientific knowledge is then applied to an industry setting to improve the management, performance and welfare of leisure horses and equine athletes. The study of equine science will give students exposure to the scientific and practical aspects of the horse industry.

The agribusiness component of the program will prepare students for business management positions in industries which demand graduates who are consumer focused, commercially aware, innovative, internationally orientated and technically competent. They will learn about marketing, finance and managing people and technology along the agrifood value chain. Students will study business courses in accounting, economics, and market research in an agribusiness context.
