BS Agribusiness Economics

Written by Administrator. Posted in About Us



The program is based primarily on the needs of Mindanao, particularly in pursuing the island’s role as the country’s food basket amidst the challenges of globalization and international competitiveness.

The program is unique as no other university in the region offers a degree in economics that is geared towards applying economic theories in agribusiness. The program will develop graduates with strong theoretical and mathematical foundations necessary for the application of concepts in real problems of the region.


Graduates of this program will be employed in decision-making positions in agribusiness input suppliers, marketing firms, public and private organizations providing services to farms, the agribusiness sector and the rural sector. They can also be engaged in research and the teaching profession.
