The College of Business Administration of the University opened in the school year 1922-23. It aims: (1) to train business leaders and executives prepared to cope with the manifold problems of business and industry brought about by the dislocation of Philippine economy; (2) to help in the stabilization of the national economic system; (3) to give an essential cultural background and a thorough familiarity with general business facts, principles, and practices which are necessary in preparing for effective business administration and leadership; and (4) to develop resourcefulness and independence of thinking in the analysis of business facts and problems.
After his release from foreign domination in 1946, the Filipino has become fully cognizant of the imperative need for broadening his sphere of economic activities, and of taking greater participation in the industrial and commercial development of his country. Now more vigorous and economically militant than ever before, he has become realistic of the fact that he cannot remain indifferent to his economic welfare and allow foreign minds and capital to monopolize the country’s industrial and commercial resources. Conscious of this economic awakening, the College of Business Administration of the University of Manila has been leaving no stone unturned to help produce minds trained to cope with the needs of the country’s development. This college offers the following major fields of studies, namely Accounting, Banking and Finance, Management, Marketing and Economics. It is now staffed with more qualified professors and better library and other facilities.
In recognition of the quality standards and practices of the College of Business Administration and Accountancy, the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities-Commission on Accreditation or PACUCOA, a member of the Federation of Accrediting Agencies in the Philippines or FAAP, conferred Level II Re accreditation status to its B.S. Business Administration program.
