The John Deere Dealership Management program is designed to enhance the competence and professionalism of new employees at John Deere dealerships. In cooperation with John Deere dealers, this program provides students an opportunity to develop an understanding of agri-business topics such as sales, marketing, management, and finance; agricultural science topics such as soil science and crop production; and mechanical information about John Deere products. Students gain knowledge through classroom lectures and discussions, and laboratory and shop experiences. Further development of skills occurs through cooperative training at sponsoring dealerships. Some distance delivery courses are available. The curriculum was designed and is maintained with input from an advisory committee of local and regional dealership employees and John Deere personnel.
