Horticulture Business Management

Horticulture Business Management is an excellent career choice for people who love plants and want to make a good living working with them. Plant growing and care skills are an excellent complement to horticultural plant marketing and sales, plant business management and potentially horticultural business ownership. The plant growing industry is always in need of capable managers. The Horticulture Business Management ITS program is designed to give students a strong background both in the principles of plant growth, production and care, as well as how to communicate with employees, coworkers and customers. Marketing, business structures promoting profitability, common business practices and small business norms are addressed to help assure the plant knowledge gained in the program can be put to practical use in your future horticulture based profession.
