Equestrian Program

Business Administration with Concentration In Equine Business Management

Students who are interested in blending equine studies with other disciplines may find that a Major in Equine Business Management is the perfect combination.

One of the greatest advantages our program offers is the hands-on experience required in every equine and business class. Writing your own business plans and demographic analyses, designing your own ad campaigns, making your own oral presentations and participating in event management activities are invaluable elements of the St. Andrews program, and are rarely offered elsewhere at the undergraduate level.
