Business & Accountancy

Dream. Believe. Achieve.

“Great things come from small beginnings.” Amidst the chaos of the economic crisis the world is currently experiencing, Aldersgate College (AC) is silently developing innovative ways of bringing high quality education not only to the youth of Nueva Vizcaya and its surrounding municipalities but also to men and women who are in pursuit of continuing professional education.

I believe that the most valuable long-term investment anyone can make is not stocks or bonds or real estate but higher education, which many accept as the great equalizer, the key to better economic opportunities, and eventually, social mobility. In this regard, AC offers accessible, affordable, and life-changing quality education to everyone who enters its portals and believes in AC’s commitment to high standards of academic excellence, social relevance, and spiritual nourishment for all its stakeholders.

The quality of our physical facilities at the School of Business and Accountancy are continually enhanced to provide our students a comfortable learning environment.

We combine the traditional classroom modality with the latest technologies and formats in order to improve the quality and increase the flexibility of the learning experience.

Our students also benefit from the real-world insights of practitioners through their on-the-job trainings, a practice-based learning modality that is made possible through our networking with various industry groups.

For the past 5 years or so, student – leaders from our college have qualified to the Search for the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP). Our students get the chance to hone their skills in journalism, accountancy, leadership, and the arts as they participate in Provincial, Regional and National competitions and forums.

The skills and insights that our students acquired in their classroom and on-the-job-training experiences give them a good chance at employment where they demonstrate excellent work ethics gained from their preparation.

Vision

The School of Business and Accountancy shall become a leading research organization, implementing  innovative development projects, and providing specialized and continuing education to local and international students and professionals.

Mission

The School of Business and Accountancy will develop professionals in the fields of International Business and Development, Business Process Outsourcing, Entrepreneurship, and Governance, who are capable of providing reliable, proactive and excellent services to their clients in a multi-national and multi-cultural work setting.

Curricular Strategy

In School-year 2010-11, the School of Business and Accountancy was spinned-off from the College of  Business and Information Technology to integrate the teaching of  Business and Accounting with the research and development programs of other development units within Aldersgate College. These units are the Aldersgate College Global Outsourcing Center (ACGOC) and the Center for Rural Enterprise and Appropriate Technology (CREATE). This integration  requires that all faculty members  be actively involved in business research and development, thus delivering enriched learning through synthesis of theories and best industry practices.

In this connection, students are intensively exposed to apprenticeship work assignments and are required to conduct practical researches within the business and job environments of affiliated business and development organizations. This enables them to build professional networks and employment contacts that prove valuable when they finish their courses.
