School of Economics

The School of Economics (SEC) traces its roots to the very early days of the Center for Research and Communication (CRC), the University’s forerunner.

SEC was conceived when CRC began offering courses in Industrial Economics and Applied Business Economics.

For more than 40 years now, the School has produced professional economists, corporate planners, and business analysts occupying key positions in private firms and government institutions.

Recognized as a leading economics school and as a catalyst of economic progress in the Philippines and in Asia, SEC has earned a reputation for highly relevant economic research.

School of Management

The School of Management (SMN), formerly Center for Management, traces its roots to 1973 when the Strategic Business Economics Program (SBEP), one of the School’s core programs, was established.

The Center of Management was then composed of SBEP, Cooperatives Development Unit, and the Institutes of Management; Agribusiness Development; and Policy, Ethics, and Excellence in Enterprise. In May 1996, the Board of Trustees established the School of Management and appointed Dr. Jose Rene Gayo as the first Dean. The School was formally launched on December 13, 1996.

The School of Management, which offers continuing education seminars for corporate staff, is envisioned to be an innovative molder of business leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs in the Asia-Pacific region. It will be known for management education programs that foster competent, dynamic, ethical, and socially responsible enterprises.

SMN confers the following degrees:

School of Sciences and Engineering

The School of Sciences and Engineering (SSE) aims to form its students into Renaissance scientists and engineers with a unique portfolio of knowledge, abilities, skills and habits, ensured by the University’s long-standing tradition in the liberal arts.

UA&P’s pioneers saw the need to humanize the sciences and engineering, both of which experienced rapid technological growth at the turn of the century. The sense of the transcendent—of the ‘beyond what is apparent’—was lost on the way and such loss led to greater materialism. Today’s engineers and scientists may have effective models to earn profits or invent things, but all at the cost of ethical conduct. The School of Sciences and Engineering aims to address that.

SSE confers the following degrees:

School of Law and Governance

The School of Law and Governance (SLG), the erstwhile Institute of Political Economy, has been providing theoretical and practical training in politics, governance and diplomacy since 1995.

The Political Economy program, the SLG’s pioneer program, seeks to equip students with skills that will enable them to examine society through different lenses—philosophy, political science, economics, history, sociology—and to consider social issues not merely from a local but also from a regional and global perspective.

The Juris Doctor (JD) or Law program provides training in standard competencies expected of lawyers. Following worldwide trends in the field of legal education, and helped by its integration within UA&P and within SLG, the JD program is envisioned to increasingly adopt interdisciplinary and international perspectives.

SLG programs are anchored on the core principles of human dignity, solidarity, subsidiarity and the common good.

SLG confers the following degrees:
