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 VSB's role as a leader in field of management
