The objective of the Postgraduate Diploma (P.G.D.) in Aboriginal Agriculture and Land Management is to provide students who hold a Bachelor's Degree in a non-agricultural discipline with sufficient training in agribusiness and land management to enable them to operate at the interface between the aboriginal community and the agribusiness sector.  The primary focus of the P.G.D. is on aboriginal students who have graduated from a Bachelor's Degree in a non-agricultural discipline, but all students are welcome in the program.
