BS Business Administration: Course Description

Most of us know what it’s like to work for someone else.  Not everyone likes to work for a boss, though.  There are some people who prefer to be their own boss, which is why they run businesses of their own.

It may be argued, however, that good business leaders are made, not born.  Hence we have a major set aside specifically for them.  Let’s take a closer look at what the BS Business Administration course really entails.

Armed with Knowledge

In a nutshell, the course is designed to equip would-be entrepreneurs with the knowledge they’ll need to run their very own enterprises.  They can expect classes in such fields as marketing, economics, and accounting.

The interesting thing is that, depending on the university they attend, they’ll also get certain “hybrid” business subjects thrown in for good measure.  For example, they may encounter such sub-courses as business law and data processing

The Well-Rounded Business Person

Ironically, business isn’t just about business per se; it’s about relationships.  People are more likely to do business with those whom they like.  Therefore, don’t be surprised to see such subjects as industrial psychology or organizational communication.  Add a course or two on enterprise ethics and you’re set.

There are also a lot of courses available for the business people seeking to specialize in their particular fields.  A number of these include e-business sourcing, employee relations and change management.

At the end of the day, the whole point of the Business Administration course isn’t just to produce an efficient business person, but an effective one as well—that is, a person who does the right thing, instead of merely doing things right.

    • Hi! As far as I know, 2.8 is the reconsideration cut-off for UPLB, and the reconsideration cut-offs for the other campuses are higher than that. If the reconsideration cut-offs from a few years ago remain true, then unfortunately, it’s not looking good.

      That being said, I strongly urge you to call the Office of the University Registrar of the UP campuses you’re interested in to inquire about the possibility of getting reconsidered; perhaps they’ve changed their reconsideration cut-offs. Don’t give up until you have turned every stone.

  1. Good day! I’m a parent of an incoming college student. We have applied for reconsideration at UP Pampanga where the required UPG is 2.500. Our son’s UPG is 2.514. We were advised by the Admissions Office to submit a copy of the UPG for further evaluation of UP Pampanga review committee. We were also told that should we get a favorable response to our appeal our son will be asked to sign a contract indicating that he is obligated to finish the entire course only at Pampanga. Our understanding is that a student whose appeal has been granted cannot apply for transfer to other campuses at any time.Appreciate your thoughts on this. Thank you very much.

    • Hi Sir! We believe that this requirement is valid. A contract prohibiting a UP-campus-transfer is an effective deterrent against misuse of UP system backdoors. Without this requirement in place, a student could apply for reconsideration in a UP Campus then, after one or two years, apply for transfer to his/her preferred campus (say, UP Diliman or UP Manila). In short, this policy discourages the (mis)use of smaller UP campuses as stepping stones towards the more popular UP campuses.

      Thank you for visiting, and we hope your son makes it. Good luck and God Bless!
