The skill sets that people need in farm management roles are completely different to before. University study has taught me to analyse and think critically about my business to ensure that I am making the right decisions for the farm to be successful.

The Graduate Diploma in Agribusiness is an ideal steppingstone for those currently working in the dairy or horticulture industry who wish to improve their management and leadership, and a great foundation for those wishing to enter the industry.

In this online post graduate course you will study one of two masterclasses, Dairy Management or Horticultural Business. Each masterclass will enhance your business skills, from operational and technical abilities, to farm management and strategic decision making.

Created in partnership with peak industry bodies in horticulture (Horticulture Innovation Australia) and dairy (Dairy Australia), this course has been developed under the guidance of national industry steering committees for each sector.

Your studies will include the development of a business plan relevant to either growing your business or consolidating it after a period of growth. You will also study a wide range of topics essential to agribusiness operations including leadership, management, finance, marketing and agriculture. And long after you’ve graduated, you’ll be rewarded by the networks you build during the course.

Three face-to-face workshops will be held in strategic locations across Australia. Each workshop will run over a two day duration, also accessible by distance. This experience will foster peer-to-peer engagement, introduce students to online resources, reinforce course learnings, and provide networking opportunities with agribusiness leaders.

Career outcomes

The Masterclass was a fantastic way for me to develop new skills whilst networking and meeting growers from all over the country. Whilst we all grew different crops, we faced the same issues and by working together, not only did we help each other solve problems, we developed life-long friendships.

Fees & scholarships

Domestic students

Commonwealth supported places (CSP)

Domestic undergraduate students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place in this course. If you are offered a Commonwealth supported place, your fees are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government, and you will only be required to pay the student contribution amount for each unit.

You may be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. This means you can pay your tuition fees later once you start earning above a specific threshold. For more information, please refer to the Study Assist website.

The student contribution amount for each unit of study is based on its discipline area. Student contribution amounts are charged for each unit of study, this means that amounts will depend on which units you choose. Find out more about student contribution amounts.

Detailed fee information for domestic students is available at Scholarships, fees and costs, including additional information in relation to the compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).
