Serious About Ranching? Consider a Master's in Ranch Management from the King Ranch Institute

Serious About Ranching? Consider a Master's in Ranch Management from the King Ranch Institute


During the recent Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Convention in San Antonio, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays sat down with Dr. Clay Mathis, director and endowed chair of the King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management. With that position, Mathis leads the world’s only higher education program offering advanced ranch managers a Masters of Science degree in ranch management.


“We start with the best possible students, the highest potential leaders we can find, that have experience in our industry and help train them,” Mathis said, “so they can truly lead our industry and manage these ranches and lands.”


The program only retains a total of six students at a time, accepting three new applicants each year. Mathis explains that this program is not for the average rancher. They only consider serious managers with at least five to ten years experience managing larger, complex operations. If accepted, the student will then spend the next two years under intensive training.


“We focus a lot on leadership development and try to build their systems thinking skills, so that they are capable and prepared with the tools to manage the complexities of these larger and more complex ranching operations,” he said. “With the increasing complexity of business, we need managers that are highly skilled at making great decisions with incomplete information in complex environments.”


Listen to Dr. Clay Mathis and Ron Hays discuss the King Ranch Institute’s Masters of Ranch Management program in detail, on today’s Beef Buzz.
