HISTORY OF SBG
Fifty-two years after its foundation, the Ateneo de Davao University stands as a hallmark of education in Southern Philippines. Since then, the undergraduate business courses of the Ateneo de Davao University were under the College of Arts and Sciences; the MBA, MPA and MAN programs were under the graduate business programs and the MGA program was under the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. In an effort to have all the business courses of all levels be vertically articulated and to integrate the business and governance courses into one school, the School of Business and Governance (SBG) was constituted last April 2000. The School of Business and Governance offers undergraduate and graduate programs.
The undergraduate programs comprise seven departments, namely: Accountancy Department, Accounting Technology Department, Finance Department, Business Management Department, Marketing Department, Entrepreneurship Department and Public Management Department.
The graduate programs offer master and doctorate degrees.
The school aims at providing a dynamic learning environment for responsible and humanistic business education, research and administration. It strives to be comparable to the best business schools in the world in terms of the quality of its teaching and research. Under its aegis are accountancy, business administration and graduate business programs as well as support programs in computer literacy, research and extension offices. The school distinguished itself in its excellent classroom and out of classroom instruction, experienced and qualified faculty with a business research orientation, and strong academe-industry linkage. It seeks to establish itself as a center of excellence in business as it develops competent, development-focused and service-oriented youth and professionals for business, government and other sectors of the global community.
