Launched in 1998, the Master of Agribusiness (MAB) program at Kansas State University was the first graduate agribusiness program in the nation to be offered through distance education. The MAB was developed to teach food, animal health and agribusiness professionals strategies for making informed decisions based on a thorough understanding of current issues.
The award-winning program has attracted more than 500 students from more than 40 states and 30 countries and is in its 19th year of delivery to industry professionals. The 42-credit-hour program is delivered executive-style over a 30-month period to a cohort of students. Students attend four one-week campus sessions on the Kansas State University campus over a 2 ½ year period, and complete the remainder of course work at a distance using the internet, flash drives, podcasts and interactive online classrooms.
