Dean Message

Out of six academic faculties at Sylhet Agricultural University, the faculty of Agricultural Economics and Business Studies (AEBS) is a prominent one. It comprises five departments, namely i) Agricultural Economics and Policy ii) Rural Sociology and Development iii) Agricultural Statistics iv) Agricultural Marketing and Business Management and v) Agricultural Finance and Banking. The AEBS faculty has launched its academic activities at the undergraduate level, offering a four-year Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics (Honours) degree since March 3, 2010, in the session 2009–2010. To date, about 415 students have graduated from this faculty. In addition, each department offers an MS degree with a specialization in the particular field, and some departments have also started offering doctoral programs.

The AEBS faculty provides its academic programs for brilliant students with clear commitment and devotion to developing knowledge and understanding of the theoretical concepts that are required in practical circumstances, who can meet the national and international demand in the arena of agricultural economics and allied fields. The graduates of this faculty have been serving in various government organizations (GOs), banks, civil services, research institutes, universities, colleges, rural development institutes, agricultural extension departments, non-government organizations (NGOs), and other local and international development organizations. The need for skilled and trained manpower in the field of agricultural economics in developing countries like Bangladesh can hardly be overemphasized. Realizing the complexities in the socioeconomic setting of rural Bangladesh and technological advancements in the agricultural sector, particularly in production and processing operations, and to solve the different agro-economics based research problems, the curriculum for the faculty’s undergraduate degree program is designed with multidisciplinary courses in Agricultural Economics and Policy; Agricultural Finance and Banking; Agricultural Marketing and Business Management; Agricultural Statistics; and Rural Sociology and Development. Besides, related disciplines, such as Agronomy, Horticulture, Soil Science, Agricultural Extension, Animal Science, Fisheries, Agricultural Engineering, Biotechnology, etc. courses also included in the curricula.

The AEBS faculty has already carried out several research and development projects that are effective in enhancing academic, technical, and research performance. The faculty is devoted to offering the best efforts to promote quality education and research programs, collaborating with different national and international universities, research institutions, and other stakeholders. We are committed to continuous improvement and making the AEBS faculty a center for excellence in the agricultural economics discipline by creating a world-class academic and research environment. Scholastic suggestions are highly appreciated in this regard.
