Spring semester is flying by!! It seems like just last month I was celebrating Christmas with family and friends! Maybe it is the anticipation of spring coming or excitement of Ag Fest week around the corner. But the main reason why this semester has gone by so fast for me is due to the intense, applicable, and exciting classes I am enrolled in this semester.
One of the classes I enjoy this semester is Food and Agribusiness Management. This class takes all the information I have learned while at K-State in previous economic, financial, and management classes and rolls it into one large concept: company/business success. I have learned how to apply various concepts and ideas to various real life case studies like Sara Lee or McDonald's and evaluate where these companies have/have not been successful.
Two other classes that I am taking which are preparing me for the work force are Agriculture Law and Taxation. In the Ag. Law class I am learning the different aspects of civil, criminal, and regulatory law and how they apply to the agriculture industry. In my Taxation class I am learning all about the taxation process, regulations, codes, and various forms. Although these classes are more intense, I am enjoying them because I know what I am learning now, I can apply to a future job when I am helping farmers, ranchers, or business leaders succeed in their industry.
