Take your career in horticulture further

In partnership with leaders in the horticulture industry, the University of Tasmania has developed a Graduate Diploma of Agribusiness, with a Horticultural Business specialisation.

The course is designed for people who are working in the horticultural industry to increase their agribusiness skills and gain a formal qualification. It has been developed with the input from many of Australia’s current industry leaders and academics from Lincoln University (NZ), providing you with knowledge and skills to grow your horticulture career.

This Masterclass in Horticultural Business, funded by Horticulture Innovation, has helped professionals from across the country turn their business ideas into actionable business plans, so that they’re ready to overcome these challenges and reach their full potential as one of the many success stories of the Australian horticulture industry.
