WA Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery announced Curtin University will offer an Associate Degree in Agribusiness at Muresk Institute from 2019.
The new course will provide flexible delivery modes including face to face teaching at Muresk and Curtin’s Bentley campus, augmented with relevant hands-on and practical experience. Block teaching will also be considered as a means of addressing students’ seasonal work commitments associated with the farming sector.
Currently, 45 students are undertaking the Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management course (BABM) delivered by Charles Sturt University with nine students enrolled in the course at the beginning of 2017. Current students in the BABM will have no change to their course.
The Associate Degree in Agribusiness at Curtin University will be a two-year program and will be a pathway into the full Curtin University Bachelor of Agribusiness.
