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 Examination and becoming national nominess and awardees in academic and ledership 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.
To contribute to national development, CBAA has established the CLSU-CBAA Foundation, Inc. as a non-stock, non-profit organization. It is the corporate arm of the College to engage in development works and programs of applied researches and entrepreneurial activities, thereby financing income generating projects of its constituents, and extending professional and technical assistance and services.
CBAA has two departments offering three curricular programs. These are the Department of Accountancy and the Department of Business Administration.
