Texas Ranching Degree is one of a kind
(Page 2 of 2)
“We will use the expertise we already have on campus in addition to lectureships by outside experts,” Dunn says. “The lectureships allow us to bring in these experts for a week or a month to give the students, and even community members and area ranchers, access to the best minds in the business.”
This is not a traditional graduate program, he says. Students from the institute spend time in an internship on a ranch working with some of the finest ranch managers in the world.
“King Ranch has graciously offered to serve as a working laboratory for the students and participants in the institute,” Dunn says. “This unique opportunity adds tremendous depth and credibility to the entire program.”
Dunn says the program not attracts prospective ranch managers from South Texas but also from around the United States and even the world.
The institute was created in conjunction with the people at King Ranch Inc.
“King Ranch was built on ranching innovation and a commitment and determination to succeed,” says James H. Clement Jr., chairman of the board, King Ranch Inc. “We believe there is no better way to live up to that legacy than to invest in the future of American ranching. We are determined that the institute will provide the best ranch management graduate education available and are committed to making it the finest source for ranching information in the world.”
A management council composed of ranch managers, wildlife research and management representatives and representatives of other pertinent disciplines advises on the overall direction of the program and provides the life and work experience to ensure graduates have the best broad-based education in ranch management possible.
“South Texas has many blessings, most notably of which is a rich ranching heritage,” Rosati says. “The King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management at Texas A&M-Kingsville is another jewel in the crown of South Texas ranching and higher education.”
