Agric Exons is simply managing agriculture using economic principles. Do you have interest in farming? If yes, it's okay. Just have a dream. There are engineers in the bank. Agric economists in telecom, web design, farming etc. Ask yourself, what do you have pation for. Dont study a course to het a good job but cos it's in line with your dream.

one of the best departments in the Agricultural sciences Faculty. ...An Agric economist can work in the business,Agric,banking sectors and many others...It is a very nice course(+many electives) with a great future...I think a former cbn governor (maybe soludo)studied Agric economics...*The main ish is to study hard and graduate with good grades..I know a few people (bankers)that studied animal husbandry in school ,so your course might not even be relevant...!adaptivity&flexibility are key these days

that's my course and I am 500L now. Firstly, employment in Nigeria is not based on course. bt experience has shown dt Engineers get employed more in Nigeria especially in Bank, followed by agriculturists (debatable). but I hv a feeling d job orientation will soon leave u once u start (debatable).

Job is actually the priority of those that doesn't know much abt Agric.

I bet the op will stop making reference to job opportunities when he starts studying it.
