The increasing complexity of the global animal health industry has created a need for additional training for employees of this industry in the management of organizations in this industry. Critical issues include the redefinition of animal health as a whole and the complexities that have arisen with pharmaceutical impact in food supplies; the breadth of species included in animal health (food and companion); veterinary epidemics and the one health concept; consolidation of companies; increasing regulation; “downstream customer” influence and knowledge; workforce diversification; and the competition for resources in human/animal markets.

The aim of this certificate program is to provide a series of courses and experiences that will equip employees in animal health industries with economic and animal agriculture specific management tools to enable them to lead and manage organizations in the animal health sector. The certificate will be open to individuals meeting the admissions criteria delineated in Section E and is not limited to Master of Agribusiness students.
