    About the Department

    The department aims to advance and promote knowledge and practical skills in agricultural and applied economics through training, research, consultancies and outreach with the aim of contributing to poverty reduction by promoting efficiency in agricultural production and increased incomes for the majority of farmers in Malawi.

    The department envisions of becoming a centre of excellence in training, research, outreach and consultancy in Agricultural and Applied Economics within Malawi and beyond.

    The department also offers courses in the Collaborative MSc Programme in Agricultural and Applied Economics, a regional programme which aims to equip professionals with knowledge and skills essential for transforming the currently underdeveloped agro-food sectors and rural economies of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa to perform well in an environmentally sustainable fashion.
