Agricultural Commodity Risk Management Program Program uri icon

Students interested in exciting career opportunities in trading commodities, merchandising or managing cattle, dairy or grain elevator operations will benefit from a new University of Idaho program focused on commodity risk management. The new Agricultural Commodity Risk Management program allows students to learn how to manage the risk involved in commodity marketing and trading throughout the agricultural supply chain in order to maximize profits.

Commodity markets are essential to Idaho and the nation’s economies. The study of the price dynamics, market structures, costs of production, profit margins and market participant’s behaviors are essential for students seeking a career in agribusiness, agrifinance or who wish to be managers of their own farm or ranch.
