Welcome to the Agricultural Economics website. Spring has sprung in Starkville and Mississippi State and students are busy lining up internships for the summer. Last summer, Naomi Taylor, a sophomore majoring in Environmental Economics and Management, spent her summer in Malawi working with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations on an internship to assess the outcomes of irrigation techniques that had been introduced to small farmers in the wake of a 2005 drought. You can read about some of her experiences. Internships are an important ingredient to a successful college experience and often lead to employment after graduation. Dr. Randy Little (little@agecon.msstate.edu), our Undergraduate Coordinator, oversees the internship program. To learn about our undergraduate programs in Agribusiness and Environmental Economics and Management, and graduate programs in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Management, explore this website. Thank you for visiting our site and please contact us if you have any questions.
