BS Tourism Management

HISTORY OF IBM

When the City College of Angeles opened its door to the public on June 2012, it initially offered the course Associate Degree in Tourism Management under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). After a year, the College applied for a government Authority from the Commission on Higher Education to elevate the Associate Degree to a Bachelor’s Degree; and by virtue of Government Authority (GA) No.: GA-023 series of 2013 in accordance with the pertinent provisions of “Higher Education Act of 1994,” the City College of Angeles was authorized to operate the Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management program effective Academic Year 2013-2014

On October 2016, Dr. Richard G. Daenos was appointed as the new president of the college. Being one with an immense experience in the tourism industry specifically in the field of events, he saw that there is a need to enrich the current curriculum of the BS Tourism Management course. The current curriculum carries with it only 6 units of Events Management. He wanted the students of the college to have more leverage than students from other schools. Faculty, parents and students were consulted for the enrichment of the curriculum. And on April 10, 2017 the proposed enriched curriculum of BS Tourism Management with Specialization in MICE Tourism (16units) was content noted by the Commission on Higher Education. The approved curriculum will be implemented in the Academic Year 2017-2018.

The program will equip students with competencies related to the basic and core requirements as well as those associated with major and minor areas of concentration and elective courses. This curricular program aims to address the need for professionals who can help in promoting the tourism industry in the Philippines.

BS Accounting Technology

The primary goal of accounting education is to produce competent professional accountants capable of making a positive contribution over their lifetimes to the profession and society in which they work. In the face of increasing changes that they will meet later as professional accountants, it is essential that students develop and maintain an attitude of learning to learn, to maintain their competence later as professional accountants.

The BSAT program should provide a foundation of professional knowledge, professional skills, and professional values, ethics and attitudes that enable them to continue to learn and adapt to change throughout their professional lives. These capabilities will enable professional accountants to identify problems, know where to find this knowledge and know how to apply it in an ethical manner to achieve appropriate solutions. The balance of these elements may vary but what is required is to develop the knowledge base and strong skills in order to produce competent professional accountants with appropriate values, ethics and attitudes.

Preparing students for the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) licensure examinations and for employment in private establishment and public sector (government agencies) are subsidiary objectives which should judiciously blend with the primary goal of preparing students for a successful long-term professional accounting career. Thus, the accounting graduate should be qualified to take and pass the CAT licensure examinations, and to obtain employment as an entry-level professional accountant. With proper orientation and supervision, he should be able to cope with the problems he will face upon in the workplace.

After completion of the program and passing the CAT licensure examination, the graduates can pursue a career in accountancy and related professions. Specific jobs vary widely among the four major fields of accountancy: public practice, commerce and industry, government and education.
