NATIONAL COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND ARTS (NCBA) - Golden
In 1968, at the corner of R. Papa and Lepanto
streets, between the two giants in Philippine private education
(University of the East with its mammoth population of 65,000 and
Far Eastern University with its 47,000 enrollment), a small building
was erected to house a small school - National College of Business
Its founder is the late Dr. Doroteo S. Pasion, a
well-known educator (former Dean of Commerce of San Beda College,
former CPA Review director of the University of the East, and former
President of PSBA), lawyer, accountant, author and civic leader. Dr.
Pasion launched NCBA as a public service, together with four others
who believed in the NCBA concept: Col. Rafael Q. Yap-Diangco, Atty.
Jose R. Torres, Jr., Mrs. Gloria C. Meñez, and Mrs. Lourdes L.
Keeping to its founder's vision, NCBA has opted
to remain as a specialized school and its growth measured and steady
through the years. From that small edifice along R. Papa St., NCBA
slowly expanded its academic programs and facilities with the single
purpose of producing for the nation the type of educated manpower it
needs for its development and well being.
When NCBA opened in 1968, its offerings were
limited to the following courses: Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration, Bachelor of Arts, Two-Year course in Secretarial
Administration and its own CPA Review. Next, the NCBA High School
was opened in school year 1973-74 followed by its additional
offerings of short terminal courses in Cooperative, Salesmanship,
Bookkeeping and Accounting, and Small Business Management in school
Today, more than 50 years after its founding,
NCBA boasts of a complete package of academic offerings - from
preparatory school to an expanded tertiary education program and
graduate courses. Curricular offerings now include BS in Accountancy
(BSA); BS in Business Administration (BSBA) major in various fields
such as Financial Management, Human Resource Development Management,
Marketing Management and Operations Management; BS in Hotel and
Restaurant Management (BSHRM); BS in Information System (BSIS); BS
in Computer Science (BSCS); Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEED)
and Bachelor in Secondary Education (BSE). The Graduate program
offers Master in Public Administration (MPA) and Master in Business
Since its founding, NCBA has endeavored
continually to perpetuate its educational policy: to offer and
provide, both in facilities and teaching force, a complete education
to young men and women and equip them with the skills and trainings
to become responsible citizens and future leaders of our country.
