The Faculty of Economics and Management (FEP) (erstwhile The Faculty of Resource Economics and Agribusiness) was first established in January 1974, as the fourth faculty in Universiti Putra Malaysia (erstwhile Universiti Pertanian Malaysia). It was established in response to the needs for competent professionals in the fields of Agribusiness and Resource Economics.
Ever since its inception, FEP has grown in terms of students’ intake, number of academic programs offered, research activities, and professional services. Expansion of academic programs over the years is as follows:

To cater to the educational needs of working adults, FEP established Executive Program Unit (UPE) in 1997 by offering part time programs to candidates with working experiences in public or private sectors. This program has thus expanded through collaboration with Malaysian Airlines (MAS) Academy in the year 2000.
Within the same year, FEP established External Program Unit and Distance Learning Unit in 2001.
FEP offers three bachelor level programs: Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Business Administration. At the graduate level, FEP offers Masters of Economics, Masters of Science and PhD in Economics.
