2016 BMC’s Chairperson Message

Message from the 2016 BMC Chairperson:
Welcome to the Business Management Cluster (BMC) at UP Cebu.

This is a time when we are witnessing a lot of changes in Cebu and in the Region. From replacing idle lands and old buildings with business process outsourcing (BPO) offices, boutique hotels, shopping malls, 24-hour convenience stores to satisfy the changing needs of Cebu residents. With these developments, the mission of BMC remains steadfast: to contribute to the betterment of Cebu and the Region.

We will continue to be true to our mission by delivering relevant academic programs, researches and public service activities.

We strive to graduate ethical and responsible citizens who are prepared to take lead in their careers and in the communities, and are ready to serve for the advancement of the society. Our students shall be trained and developed through excellent academic programs delivered by distinguished faculty and a pool of industry-recognized lectures.

Join us in our efforts to build the next generation of leaders.

2014 Business Management Cluster Chairperson’s Message


2014 BMC's Chairperson Message

2014 BMC’s Chairperson Message

Message from the 2014 BMC Chairperson:

The Management Cluster consists of two programs, the BSM and the MBA with a full complement of eleven (11) full time faculty members, inclusive of the Dean of the College, the Associate Dean for Administration and the Budget Officer for the college. Other faculty members also handled sensitive positions, including the BAC Chairmanship.

Our being few in numbers is not a hindrance to achieving more. All teaching performances were rate from very good to excellent; a good number of researches were published. Faculty members had their own extension services.

Yet, one of our biggest achievements as a cluster was the conceptualization and development of the plan for the elevation of our cluster to a School of Management. We dare say that we as a cluster are ready for such elevation, and in fact do look forward to it.

The cluster will be facing new challenges in the years to come. It will continue supporting the vision and mission of the entire University. It will no less devote much effort in contributing to UP Cebu becoming a CU. The Cluster will be developing and pursuing its own plans, like the institution of two new graduate programs, and the construction of a new building.

In closing, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all our fellow faculty members, the support staff, as well as those in the administration. I sincerely pray that all will continue to extend their full support for a better UP Cebu and the UP community.
