Agribusiness was first introduced in the Philippines in early 1966 when the University of the Philippines offered the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture major in Agribusiness Management. Initially, the Agribusiness Management Program was a joint undertaking of the College of Business Administration in UP Diliman and the UP College of Agriculture in Los Baños from 1966 to 1974. In 1975, the newly-created Institute of Agricultural Development and Administration (now CEM) assumed sole administration of the program. The program was officially recognized as B.S. in Agricultural Business in 1978. In June 1983, the program was renamed B.S. in Agribusiness Management.
