Dean's Message


Warm greetings!
May I take this opportunity to inform you about interesting happenings at the College of Economics and Management.  We have all been busy working on a number of curricular proposals; packaging and implementation of research projects; offering training programs and short courses; providing technical assistance to government agencies, private businesses and NGOs; attending to our students and other clients; and planning for infrastructure development of the College.
Our faculty worked so hard to revise our three BS programs, now up for final approval --- Agricultural and Applied Economics, Economics, and Agribusiness Management and Entrepreneurship –-- in line with the K-12 program for primary and secondary education, outcomes-based education (OBE), ASEAN University Network (AUN) accreditation system, new developments in the disciplines, and feedback from alumni on how to strengthen these programs.  Recent researches are on value chain analysis, impact assessment (ex-ante and ex-post), market development, green cooperatives, food security and safety, renewable energy, environmental economics and natural resources management, among others.  To enhance scientific productivity, disseminate research outputs, and sustain a positive research culture, CEM publishes the bi-annual Journal of Economics, Management and Agricultural Development (JEMAD).  We invite you to send publishable materials for this journal.

In order to reach the general public and enhance awareness on economics and management issues that matter to everyday life, CEM also publishes a one-pager technical bulletin Economics and Management Matters with 5-10 issues per month.  These are also being compiled as book with volume 1 already published as Economics and Management Briefs.  The CEM Newsletter is also regularly published to update everyone on CEM’s activities.  While hard copies are distributed, all these are available online in our website.

Development, Natural Resources and the Environment

The book entitled “Development, Natural Resources and the Environment” illustrates the variety of scholarly and policy-oriented activities of the faculty members of the CEM-Department of Economics.

Published in 2009 and edited by Prof. Gideon Carnaje and Dr. Liborio Cabanilla, the book reasserts that “development and environmental protection are often seen as opposing goals. But they are increasingly being seen as very much dependent on each other.”  The editors argued that “…development cannot be sustained if the stock of natural resources are being depleted and environmental protection cannot be ensured unless people’s basic needs and wants are first satisfied. Recent years have also seen a revival of interest in the analysis of how a broad set of institutions affect economic development and natural resource management. The findings are of fundamental importance for development economists and policy practitioners in that they suggest that institutional quality may cause poor countries and people to stay poor.”
