The Executive Departments of the Philippines (also known as the "Cabinet") are the largest component of the national executive branch of the government of the Philippines. There are a total of nineteen executive departments, comprising the largest part of the country's bureaucracy.

The Cabinet secretaries are tasked to advise the President on the different affairs of the state such as agriculture, budget, finance, education, social welfare, national defense, foreign affairs and etc.

They are nominated by the President and then presented to the Commission on Appointments, a body of the Congress of the Philippines that confirms or rejects all appointments made by the head of state. If the presidential appointees are approved, they are sworn into office, receive the title "Secretary," and begin to carry out their duties.

During the presidency of Ferdinand Marcos, upon the mandate of the then 1973 Constitution, he changed the departments into ministries. This lasted from 1978 unil the end of his government. Thus, the Department of Education became the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
