Management

Make it happen.

The Management Program combines business and academics that stimulate students’ lives in the real world after graduation. In the process, the program equips students with the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to transform the challenges of the 21st century into business opportunities and socially responsible enterprises.

The Management Program aims to develop the Management ACES—management students who are analytical, have excellent communication skills, are ethical, and show the necessary soft skills. (i.e., emotional and professional maturity, ability to work in a team).

Curriculum

In the first three years in the University, students go through a common liberal arts curriculum. In the third year, however, students begin to take core subjects in the management program.

In the fourth year, which is considered to be the first year of the graduate studies, the program offers a generalist view of the basic management functions (finance, human resource, marketing, operations, and enterprise resource systems). On the fifth year, students should have acquired a multi-disciplined analytical framework, a holistic and strategic perspective to decision-making, and a systematic approach to implementation.

The Management Program is delivered using applied research methodologies, with emphasis on team-based project study. The combination of academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities simulates life, which is further enhanced by a work-study model via the business-academe partnerships for internship placements. The formal student-faculty mentoring process and career planning workshops contribute to a personalized learning experience.

(9-month Internship)

The Business-Academe Partnership is an intensive 9-month program, starting in August of each academic year and ending in May, which requires the management interns to report to their host companies Monday to Wednesday, do research work Thursday, and attend academic subjects every Friday and Saturday. It is a project-based internship that aims to address relevant business issues via projects performed by fifth-year students.

The result of the program is a management graduate who is ready to face the corporate world, is highly objective and yet creative, with a strong foundation in research methodologies and in solving business dilemmas.
