In the next five to ten years, a large number of agriculture finance officers will be retiring. This program has been developed at the request of the banking industry to meet the upcoming needs of that high-demand area. This program has been created as a partnership between the Northeast Iowa Community College Business and Agriculture Departments and includes courses in the business skills needed for a bank or finance officer and gives students the background knowledge in agriculture needed for that unique area of the industry. The degree is also designed to easily transfer into a bachelor's degree for students and for banks that desire their employees to have bachelor's degrees.
