Food Industry Leadership, Minor

The Food Industry Leadership program is an inter-disciplinary opportunity for students within the College of Business Administration to learn about the food industry while pursuing their degree in any discipline.  Students will explore the many facets of the food industry and discover that this vital industry provides many exciting career opportunities. 

The program is designed so that students take specific courses focused on the food industry and then combine them with other courses in their major.  These courses provide a solid background in the food industry, in the management of the food value chain, and in the complexities of transporting and delivering food.

As part of this minor, it is strongly suggested that students pursue an internship or other type of professional experience with food-related companies.  Niagara students have had internships with Clorox, Rich Products, Lactalis, and Rosina Foods to highlight a few.  These career-building experiences enable students to pursue their interests within the dynamic and expanding food industry.
