Citrus and Horticultural Science: Business

Horticultural Science and Business Administration in One Program

Horticultural Science with a concentration in Business provides the perfect combination of hands-on experiences (both on campus and off) and broad-based horticultural education, as well as the industry connections, you need to excel.

Top Reasons

Horticulture is Big Business

U.S. agricultural exports were valued at $140 billion in 2018 (USDA). The Citrus and Horticultural industries in Florida generate billions of dollars a year alone.

Set Yourself Apart

Understanding the foundations of business (accounting, management, marketing) provides you a leg up in the competitive horticultural science job market.

Agriculture and Business Experts

Our professors are industry experts who enable you to develop a deep interdisciplinary background by learning both horticultural science as well as business.

Prime Location

Located in central Florida, our close proximity to the Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred allows us to bring in expert guest speakers from the industry.

Malcolm Manners

I like to work closely with my students, from a scientific research point of view. Define a problem, design a method of coming up with the answer to the problem, and then actually do the research to find the answers. I think it is important to instill the sense of curiosity and joy and wonder about what we do.
