Mapúa’s new school of business and management - ETYSBM - was established by its
Board of Trustees on March 4, 2005 and named after the founder of the pioneer company
of the YGC Group – Enrique T. Yuchengco. This was after the BS Business Administration
course was revived by the BOT on December 14, 2004. The first batch of students
came in July of SY 2005-06 for the BSBA program as well as for the BS Accounting
(BSA) program. This was followed by the first batch of BS Hotel Restaurant Management
(BSHRM) students in SY 2006-07 and then by the first batch of BS Entrepreneurship
freshmen in SY 2007- 08.
The Accountancy course is considered an honors program. It attracts a good number
of interested freshmen but because of a strict retention policy (a 2.25 or better
grade in all accounting subjects) many eventually stream into the BSBA or BSHRM
Starting with only a total of 42 freshmen in SY 2005-06, admission has stabilized
to 281 new students in SY 2011-12.
Our freshmen are usually 17 year old high school graduates adjusting to college
life in a quarter school system. They are adjudged as achievers who are being motivated
to be hard working students. But many are late – bloomers at that. This is the rationale
to a student-centric approach for freshman - to reduce the seeming preponderance
of failing grades in Math and Accounting, i.e., the “Special Audit” option rather
Currently we have a total of 935 active students in ETYSBM. Our graduates had averaged
55 the past two academic years.
Our faculty profile for Accounting and Business Administration reflects a composition
bias on senior part-time professorial lecturers who work in the Makati area. They
are very experienced in the subjects they teach. We also manage to attract experienced
Chefs and Hospitality Specialists for the BSHRM program.
As the undergraduate programs at ETYSBM are already in a stable standing, preparations
are underway for an innovative MBA program to be launched. It will rely heavily
on a Learning Management System (LMS) approach. The target opening date is SY 2012-13.
