Bachelor of Science in Business Administration & Accountancy

     Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Accountancy program, a five-year course, is essentially an extension of the basic BSBA curriculum. It aims to develop the accounting student into a professional public accountant as well as provide him/her with the basic preparation to be a professional manager or entrepreneur. The program accepts between 60 and 90 students every year. Click on the links at the left column of this page for more details.
The College offers a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration which primarily trains students to be professional managers and entrepreneurs. The objective of the program is to develop students who are capable of holding positions of responsibility which can be both personally rewarding and socially relevant. The program is a general management course, although the student has the option to develop a certain degree of specialized knowledge and skill in a functional area of business activity. Thus upon graduation, s/he can immediately assume a high level staff career position in the business firm. Around 100 students enter the program annually.
