The Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities of the Philippines (AACCUP) has granted Level  I accreditation to both programs being offered by the College of Business Administration and Accountancy – the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy and the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, the latter consisting of the BSBA major in Business Economics and BSBA major in Entrepreneurial Marketing. The Accreditation Survey Visit was conducted last September 3-5, 2008 with Prof. Rizaldy V. Maypa of the Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology leading the AACCUP Team.

We made it!  This is another triumph for the College, achieved through the collaborative efforts and dedication of the faculty members, staff and students.   Our unremitting efforts to maintain our standards at high levels, and to gather all necessary documents as evidences, have paid off.  The stress which accompanied extra work, the fatigue that resulted in some frayed nerves – these are behind us now.   What we will remember – and cherish –  were the moments we propped each other up and joined hands to finish the work that needed to be done.

The Level I accreditation is a form of merit conferred by the  AACCUP  to the CBAA programs for substantially achieving the College’s mission and objectives, for exemplifying and practicing quality in its curriculum and instruction, faculty development, support services to students, research undertakings, extension and community involvement, administration, and other support to instruction as laboratory, library and physical facilities.  Being Level I – accredited means the CBAA has met the general standards of quality which is recognized nationally and internationally,  AACCUP being a member of the National Network of Quality Assurance Agencies, Inc. (NNQAA),  Asia-Pacific Quality Network (APQN), and the International Network of Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).

The Level I accreditation status is good for a period of two years, after which the College must again embark for Level II accreditation.

Let us gear ourselves for a higher level of quality in all areas of assessment in order to be awarded Level II accreditation by 2010.  Taking stock of what we have done best and the things we still need to do, I am confident that we shall  again make it, together, and with God’s blessings.          

Go, CBAA, go!!!
