MACOMB, IL -- Western Illinois University agriculture students who want to further their education now have a new opportunity through WIU's master of business administration (MBA) program.

Beginning this fall, Western's MBA program will begin offering an agriculture business concentration taught by WIU agriculture associate professor Kevin Bacon. Courses include food safety, risk and technology; agricultural policy; agribusiness internship; U.S. agricultural trade; and agricultural environmental policy and regulations.

"We felt this was an essential program to offer our students," said Danny Terry, WIU agriculture department chair. "Many of our students want to further their education beyond their bachelor's degree and they asked if there was a program that had an ag business concentration. That put the plan in motion."

For more information on Western's MBA program, contact the College of Business and Technology at 309/298-2442.
