Economic education at the university dates back to 1926, when the Department of Economics and Organization of Socialist Agriculture was established at the Bilotserkivsky Agricultural Technical College. Its first director was A.I. Mulytskyi.
In November 1992, according to the decision of the academic council, the economic department was granted the status of the economic faculty by order of the rector.

Under his leadership, a Ukrainian-Canadian center for the development of curricula and programs for colleges was created at the faculty, and a number of business partnership agreements were concluded with the Iowa State Agricultural University (USA), higher educational institutions in Canada, Germany, and other countries.
