Sage Business Cases: Agribusiness

Sage Publishing continues to grow its global case collection, Sage Business Cases, in key areas that are topical and sought after, such as agribusiness.

Do you have an idea or a rough case draft? Have you written an agribusiness-related case currently used in your classroom? Bring it to Sage and we’ll work with you to develop your idea. We also encourage students to work alongside you as case writing enables students to apply theory to real-world situations, and they benefit from co- publication credits. Agribusiness covers everything from the refined process of cultivating and managing food and livestock production on farm estates management and land management to the amplification of processed agri-food products to consumers’ households. Agribusiness degree programs give students an understanding of the economic and business principles that underlie management and its application to agricultural and allied industries.

Please contact Elizabeth Jackson to complete an Expression of Interest form before submitting your case.
