About this course

The dual four-year program allows students to combine practical business skills with their interests in veterinary technology. In the veterinary technology component students will study animal handling, welfare and behaviour, clinical aspects of small and large animal health, veterinary surgical nursing principles, and veterinary practice management. Students will gain skills in routine laboratory and clinical support procedures. They will also develop knowledge and professional skills in animal management, technology and welfare that can be used beyond the clinical setting.

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.
