Bachelor of Science in Management

Welcome! It gives me great pleasure to have the opportunity to showcase our program. I hope you will take a few minutes to browse our site and learn about BS Management.

BS Management is a general management course designed to develop our students’ entrepreneurial insight.  Our program’s objective is to prepare our students to become leaders in their fields by developing an "enterprise perspective". The program seeks to provide the necessary skillset, mindset and opportunities to our students; to help them maximize their chance for success.

Through the years, many of our graduates have become effective leaders, whether in their own business ventures, in impactful social enterprises or in large national and multi-national corporations.

Take time to know more about our BS Management through this site. I hope that you will see value in the program we are providing and take on this challenging yet rewarding course with us. I look forward to meeting you.

The B.S. Management program is devoted to developing the next generation of high-impact entrepreneurs by giving students not just the theoretical frameworks but also the practical experience that will maximize their potential for future business success.

The program curriculum is designed to develop in our students the sort of entrepreneurial eye and attitude that will help them to see opportunities where other might see problems, to innovate where others might be contented to simply keep things the same, to say “I will do it” where others might be contented to simply wait for someone else to do it.

To achieve this, the major curriculum of the program is heavily project-oriented, with an emphasis on experiential and hands-on learning, rather than just classroom-based and textbook learning.

Over the four years of the program, students are given multiple opportunities to hone their business planning skills.

The centerpiece of the program is a culminating (and integrating) project where students are organized into micro-enterprise groups and tasked to actually run a business in their senior year. Many students have gone on to become entrepreneurs after graduation, with their senior year micro-enterprises serving as the take-off points for their business ventures.

By the time they graduate, we expect our students to have the requisite skills in each of the different business disciplines necessary to effectively and efficiently manage and lead any type of organization. More importantly, they should have the sort of entrepreneurial attitude and outlook that will help them to be effective change agents, innovators, and leaders, whether as founders of their own business ventures, or as managers in the largest multinational corporations.

The JGSOM Business Accelerator, or SOMBA program, as well as the JGSOM Student Enterprise Center, or JSEC, are just two of the most exciting experiential learning opportunities available to students who wish to pursue the entrepreneurial tract in earnest. 

The program seeks to maximize the student’s chance for entrepreneurial success through…

  • giving them the theoretical managerial tools,
  • exposing them to a global perspective,
  • providing them hands-on experience and
  • enhancing their networking and leadership opportunities

Our objective is to prepare our students to become leaders in their business field by developing an "enterprise perspective"; a wider outlook that understand the interconnectedness of individual functions of human resource, marketing, finance and operations. These subjects, strategic or functional, are taught by a faculty of successful experienced professionals and globally educated academics. We have designed a highly integrated cross-functional curriculum that culminates with a hands-on year-long project that requires our senior students to plan and fully implement an entrepreneurial venture.

BS Management is the largest undergraduate business program of the Ateneo. Through the four-year programme our students come to rely on each other for intellectual support. Together they learn to assess and take risks in order to meet individual and group goals. Through this high-engagement environment, our students inevitably build strong personal relationships with each other that develop on to a wide professional network after graduation.
