Why study the Bachelors of Agribusiness/Veterinary Technology

The dual four-year program allows you to combine practical business skills with your interests in veterinary technology. In the veterinary technology component you will study animal handling, welfare and behaviour, clinical aspects of small and large animal health, veterinary surgical nursing principles, and veterinary practice management. You will gain skills in routine laboratory and clinical support procedures. You 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 you for business management positions in industries which demand graduates who are consumer focused, commercially aware, innovative, internationally orientated and technically competent. You will learn about marketing, finance and managing people and technology along the agrifood value chain. You will study business courses in accounting, economics, and market research in an agribusiness context.

Students will complete courses at both the St Lucia (Brisbane) and Gatton campuses.
