The College of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) was officially established on May 19, 1983 pursuant to the provisions of Batas Pambansa Blg. 230. This ushered in CLSU’s bid to become a comprehensive academic institution. With its corporate ideals and excellence both in business and in services, CBAA committed to develop and enhance the capabilities of the students, faculty and staff. As such, CBAA is now recognized as one of the model business schools in Region III. CBAA prides itself with graduates and students topping the CPA Board Examinations and becoming national nominees and awardees in academic and leadership competitions. The awards usually come from The Outstanding Marketing Students of the Philippines, Academic Excellence in Finance, Philippine Council on Management Students Leadership Award, the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines, and the Most Outstanding Accounting Students of the Philippines.
