    7.5 /10

    Various Universities offer business diploma but I applied to Algonquin because of the unique diploma of business agriculture. The application form had to be submitted online with a nominal processing fee of $95. The basic criteria to surpass was of minimum 65% in higher secondary examination.

    Course Curriculum :

    This diploma is an unusual mix of two distinct concepts of Agriculture an Business but when they are applied together it helps to create maximum profits. It covers various topics ranging from accounting, mathematics, asset management, economic issues to diary operations, agribusiness, livestock management, production management and much more.
