The Graduate Program in Seed Technology and Business (STB) provides a unique opportunity for seed professionals to grow through the understanding of both science and technology that is key to seed industry, and broadly applicable business subjects.

The science and technology component of Master of Science program includes basic science courses in crop improvement, seed pathology, and seed physiology with courses in seed technology: seed production, conditioning, and quality.  The business component covers the basic management topics: accounting and finance, strategy and planning, management information systems, and marketing and supply chain management. There is also a unique course on seed trade, policy and regulation.  

The seed technology and business program is a cooperative program between the college of Business and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University. The Seed Science Center and the MBA program of the College of Business are involved.

Managers with awareness of basic business skills stand a better chance of making choices that will lead to efficient business process, linking seed businesses and seed organizations to clients.  They will stand a better chance of contributing to efficient production management, keeping inventory at levels that can meet organizational goals.  They will also stand a better chance of creating a company image that projects the ability to do both to customers and to potential partners in the seed and genetic supply chain.

The STB Program also offers Graduate Certificates in Seed Science and Technology and in Seed Business Management.  These Certificates share courses with the MS program.   

The next group will begin July 2010.
