Business Management Cluster

Management Cluster

The Business Management Cluster (BMC) is one of the four academic clusters of UP Cebu. Its office and academic support facilities are situated at the western side of the UP Cebu Lahug Campus where the Administrative Building is located.

In consonance with UP Cebu’s vision, the BMC intends to be the leading regional institutional resource for the training and development of managers who are strongly grounded in our national culture and heritage, and who can be effective in a wide range of situations.

To achieve this vision, it currently offers two programs—the Bachelor of Science in Management and the Master of Business Administration. The undergraduate program is offered on a semestral basis while the graduate program is offered on a trimestral basis. The existing BSM program is a 4-year generalist program designed to produce management graduates who have the flexibility to perform in the corporate environment as well as engage in entrepreneurial endeavors. The MBA Program, recently launched in UP Cebu in 2009, is a 3-year program designed to provide graduate students with a “balance between technical training and practical problem-solving, that is founded on current management theories and approaches”(UPD CBA).

Moreover, the BMC provides regularly course offerings that service the electives of B.A. Psychology students from UP Cebu’s Social Sciences Cluster.

To support these program offerings, the BMC has a human resource complement of eight full-time faculty members—two of which have Doctoral degrees, one is pursuing a doctoral degree while the rest have Master’s Degrees. Currently, it taps the services of fly-in professors from UP Diliman’s College of Business Administration to facilitate the implementation of the MBA Program.
