Developed in collaboration with industry experts, Agriculture Business Risk Management (AgBRM) is the practice of identifying, analyzing and managing the various potential risks and opportunities to achieve the goals of a business. This program is designed specifically for application in agricultural business (beef, pork, grain, oilseeds) with a strong focus on commodity and risk management essential to entrepreneurs. The focus of the program is on financial risk and topics associated with financial risk.
