MBA Agribusiness

How to apply Come to an Open Day


Explore the business of food and how it’s produced. Our MBA Agribusiness focuses on connections between agri-food businesses, regenerative farming and hybrid production to promote environmental transformation.

Our innovative Master of Business Administration MBA has a focus on regenerative food systems. It’s been developed with theoretical ‘threads’ linking all the modules together, to deliver a systems-based approach to circular economics and socio-environmental wellbeing.

These 'threads' include entrepreneurialism, economic awareness, capability building, emerging business paradigms and environmental sustainability.

We focus on food systems, security and sustainability – looking at the underlying fragility in existing systems; and regenerative systems that work with nature, and where inter-related thinking and practices might contribute to future economic, environmental and societal benefits.

Whether you want to work nationally or internationally, as part of a large or small organisation, or lead your own business start-up, this course at ARU Writtle will provide you with the skills to take your career to the next level.
