VSU’s College of Management and Economics (CME) takes regional development as the main agenda of its 7th anniversary celebration which commenced in a parade around the VSU campus, March 13.  


CME Dean Dr. Antonio Abamo said this year’s theme, Moving towards resilient livelihood and sustainable tourism development, picks up from last year’s anniversary agenda on livelihood reconstruction and building back better lives.

As a banner program of VSU, tourism has become a center of interest of the college owing to its potential contribution to the development in Region 8, Dr. Abamo said. Last year, VSU President Dr. Edgardo Tulin stressed on the establishment of the VSU Eco-Tourism Hub as a model of agricultural-eco-tourism in the region.

The head of the Department of Business Management also said the college is building up momentum for its grand 10th year anniversary celebration.

“We are making preparations for our thrust for the 10th year anniversary: social entrepreneurship and responding to a changing climate, economy, and environment,” said Dr. Abamo.

CME is composed of four academic departments and one research institute: Consumer and Hospitality Management (DCHM), Business Management, Economics, and Institute of Strategic Research and Development Studies (ISRDS). This year’s celebration is hosted by DCHM.
