Wildlife Enterprise Management

The Wildlife Enterprise Management* degree merges the fields of wildlife management and hospitality and is ideal for those that have a desire to run a business that is focused upon hunting, fishing and eco-tourism.  This interdisciplinary curriculum is taught by faculty within Auburn’s School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences and the Colleges of Human Sciences and Business and was developed to incorporate a business minor.

With this degree, our students will be well versed in principles of wildlife management, have a strong foundation in conservation biology and ecotourism, and hospitality skill sets that enable them to offer customers exceptional service and outstanding adventure experiences in the outdoors, while maintaining a successful and economically viable business enterprise.

With only one other program of its kind in the country, Auburn graduates will find abundant employment opportunities around the globe within privately-owned businesses or quasi-public agencies that offer eco-tourism, hunting and fishing, and other wildlife-recreation activities.

* Pending ACHE approval, degree enrollment will begin in the fall 2018.
