Libornio S. Cabanilla, Dean Jose V. Camacho, Jr., Associate Dean Agnes T. Banzon, College Secretary Reynaldo L. Tan, Chair, Dept. of Agribusiness Management Cesar B. Quicoy, Chair, Dept. of Agricultural Economics Amelia L. Bello, Chair, Dept. of Economics The College of Economics and Management (CEM) was formally created in the 996th UP-BOR meeting, February 1987. However, the College traces its roots to the Institute of Agricultural Development and Administration (IADA)which was established in 1975, with three departments – Agricultural Economics (DAE), Economics (DE), and Management (DM), and was elevated to the College of Economics and Management from the merger of IADA with the Agricultural Credit and Cooperative Studies and the Agrarian Reform Institute in 1978. At present, CEM is composed of three departments – the Department of Agricultural Economics, the Department of Economics and the Department of Agribusiness Management. The college sees itself as a center of excellence in undergraduate and graduate instruction, research and extension in economics, agricultural and applied economics, and agribusiness management in Asia. It envisions to be an institution of higher learning that can serve as an active catalyst for economic and social transformation. Its two-fold mission is to produce graduates and future leaders with strong training in economics, agricultural and applied economics, and in agribusiness management for the challenges of economic growth and development under a competitive global setting; and to engage in development-oriented research, policy advocacy and extension services that would promote efficiency, equity, competitiveness and environmental sustainability of economic activities. UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness Management This program was designed to enhance expertise for increased managerial responsibility in farms, agro-industries and public agencies of individuals engaged in planning and implementing agribusiness development projects/programs. As a field of study, agribusiness is management in orientation and is concerned not only with the technical side of agriculture but also with the management of a business. Students specializing in this area can expect to be exposed to business concepts, economic principles, and management tools necessary to solve marketing, financial, production and personal concerns of agriculture-based businesses. The curriculum includes 71 units of general education subjects to develop social orientation and sensitivity in a student, 51 units of core/management subjects to sharpen the student’s business perspectives, 18 units of technical-agricultural courses, and 6 units of electives to allow the potential agribusinessman to appreciate the unique characteristics of agricultural processes as they affect business. Initially, the program was a joint undertaking with the College of Business Administration in U. P. Diliman, but it can now be completed in the College of Economics and Management. Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics This program was designed to meet the substantial demand for professional agricultural economists in the country. The program aims to provide a student with the basic knowledge of various agricultural sciences to enable him to acquire insights into the technological aspects of agriculture. Also, it aims to provide him with the basic tools of economic analysis which he will use in identifying and solving economic problems of production and organization while working towards the goal of agricultural transformation. The curriculum also provides the student with adequate background in the social sciences to enable him to appreciate the socio-economic framework of the economy. Students can choose from among four areas of specialization in the curriculum: Farm Management and Production Economics; Agricultural Marketing and Prices and Agricultural Finance and Cooperatives. Bachelor of Science in Economics The Bachelor of Science in Economics Program was instituted in 1986. The program was born out of the necessity of constructing alternative development strategies for overcoming the economic crisis which has beset the country during the period. These strategies required the consideration of prevailing economic concerns which included, among others, the heavy debt burden, poverty, unemployment and underemployment, unproductive and inefficient industries, as well as malnutrition. Furthermore, there was a need to better understand natural resource exploitation and its link to the country’s development. The BS Economics Program aims to produce graduates who possess: 1) the necessary skills in quantitative and policy analyses for teaching and research in economics; 2) the ability to analyze, synthesize and evaluate economic concepts, issues and data relevant to policy decision-making in the public or private sectors; and 3) a deep appreciation of the economic issues and problems besetting the country, as well as an objective and critical attitude towards the arguments and policies meant to address them. The BS Economics Program has two fields of specialization: Development Economics and Natural Resource Economics. DIPLOMA PROGRAM The College of Economics and Management is offering a diploma program, namely: Diploma in Agribusiness Management. The post-graduate curriculum consists of 34 units of course work to be taken in 36 weeks (10 months) and follow a trimestral program that starts in June and ends in March the following year. The curriculum could be completed in one summer and two semesters (residential mode) and four semesters and one summer (distance education mode).
