Currently, Faculty of Economics is managing nine undergraduate programs, including Agricultural Economics, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, Agricultural Business, Rural Development, Accounting, Business Administration (General), Business Administration (Commerce), Financial Management, and Business Administration (High Quality Program). The Faculty has successfully developed two master programs in Agricultural Economics and Economic Management, as well as one doctoral program in Agricultural Economics. Based on stakeholders’ feedback, all the programs have been being periodically and regularly adjusted and updated to meet social demands and the labour markets in Vietnam and in Southeast Asia.
