Welcome to the Agricultural Economics department at Mississippi State. This site provides information on all activities of the department. These include undergraduate, graduate, research, and extension programs. An undergraduate degree in Agribusiness or Environmental Economics and Management from Mississippi State is a good investment. We also offer Masters degrees in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Management. Please contact Dr. Randy Little (little@agecon.msstate.edu) if you have questions about our undergraduate programs or Dr. Barry Barnett (barnett@agecon.msstate.edu) if you are interested in our graduate programs.
