    Description

    Agricultural technology management prepares students for careers that require an understanding of technology and management. The goal of the program is to educate technology managers who can combine a critical understanding of agriculture and biological sciences with the problem-solving viewpoint of an engineer. The curriculum is intended for students who want a broader education than is provided by the engineering curriculum and do not desire the analytical focus necessary in an engineering degree.

    Careers

    Graduates are employed in technical management positions in food and agricultural industries that require an understanding of both technology and management in fields such as technical sales, service and management in agribusiness. The opportunities for challenging careers are unlimited.Recent graduates have secured positions working as:

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
