Through the years, the Department of Business and Management (DBM) continues to provide students with relevant expertise in the field of agribusiness and business management to meet and serve the demands of agro-industries in the country. 

DBM carries out VSU’s mandate in agricultural development and thus, focuses most of its research programs on regional commodities such as vegetables, jackfruit, cereals, small ruminants, agroforestry, tropical ecology/environmental resource management and socio-economics. Its research activities are initiated by its faculty members, some of whom are affiliate researchers in different national research centers including the Phillippine Root Crop Research and Training Center (PhilRootcrops), Abaca National Research Center (NARC), and the National Coconut Research Center – Visayas (NCRC-V).
