University of the Philippines (College of Business Administration)

Introduction

The CBA was established in 1916, initially as a school within the university. It has since been the leader in management education in the Philippines, not because it is the oldest academic institution in management but because of its continuing pursuit of academic excellence.

The CBA offers degree programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The Ph.D. program aims to train those who wish to be educators in the management area. The Ph.D. graduate is capable of engaging in academic research that advances knowledge in the management field. The MBA program seeks to endow students with advanced management skills while the MS Finance program exposes the student to a series of courses that strikes a balance between financial theory and practice. The undergraduate program awards Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration (BSBA) and in Business Administration and Accountancy (BSBAA).

Faculty members who teach in these programs are also actively engaged in frontier academic research. This is in line with the university's thrust of achieving the highest level of academic excellence and the CBA's role as a leader in field of management education.
