blending of the business world and the technical world. Agricultural Operations Management is a
blending of the business world and the technical world. It’s not engineering. It’s not business.
It puts the two together It’s not engineering. It’s not business.
It puts the two together and what you have is a highly
technical degree that it is really marketable in a wide variety of industries. So, the AOM program really prepares you
for your career by giving you those So, the AOM program really prepares you
for your career by giving you those hands-on experiences that you can’t
really learn in the classroom. There’s lots of opportunities to apply what
you’ve learned into the field, into the lab. There’s lots of opportunities to apply what
you’ve learned into the field and into the lab. So, it shows employers that
not only can you sit there and memorize facts out of a textbook but it shows
that you are able to solve problems actively and quickly and respond to
situations depending on when they’re changing and things like that. So I think one of my favorite
things about the AOM program So I think one of my favorite
things about the AOM program is that there are so many different
types of people from different backgrounds is that there are so many different
types of people from different backgrounds that all come together in the one major.
I think that since the concentrations are so diverse there’s a
real opportunity to meet a lot of different and unique people. I chose Agricultural Operations Management I chose Agricultural Operations Management because I wanted that
business aspect of the agricultural industry. I was interested in STEM and I
definitely wanted a science background I was interested in STEM and I
definitely wanted a science background within the agriculture field but I also wanted
that business perspective as well so the management side of the major was
really important to me and I didn’t want to be in major that would cause me
to be too technical; so by being in AOM I was able to get both the agriculture side of
things but also learn the management perspective. I think what I like most
about the faculty and advisers in our I think what I like most
about the faculty and advisors in our program is just whenever
you need them, you can walk into their office, ask them

question of what jobs I would be able to get and after talking to Dr. Porter, I realized
that the jobs aren’t only limited to agriculture that there is a lot of opportunity
as far as being a manager. So if you’re open to having an extremely broad
job opportunity, then AOM I think is perfect.
