The Department of Agricultural Administration was established in 2009 as one of the four Departments in the College of Agricultural Management and Rural Development (COLAMRUD). The mandate of the Department is to teach and conduct research in all aspects of agricultural administration and to contribute to the development of our immediate environment.
The changing roles of higher education particularly universities in the growth and development of agriculture has raised awareness and concerns about the extent of her contributions to resolve developmental needs through pro-active administration. In addition to the technological know-how that the agricultural graduates must have, they also need sound knowledge of administrative processes to effectively execute their assignments.
