PAASCU grants accreditation status to SBC Accountancy Program

News - Campus Updates

The SBC Accountancy Program regained recently its accreditation status. It will be recalled that in July 2009, in its continuing quest for academic excellence, the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) voluntarily submitted itself for the reaccreditation process conducted by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU).

However in December 2009, the CAS administration was informed by PAASCU that the accreditation status of the SBC accountancy program has been deferred until such time that the administration is able to appoint a qualified department chairman who has the related graduate degree credentials.

Last June 2010, when the new set of school administrators came in, Rev. Fr. Aloysius Maranan, OSB, rector-president, appointed Prof. Joffre M. Alajar as chairman of the SBC accountancy program. Prof. Alajar has been in the teaching service for 29 years now and was chairman of accountancy from 1990 to 2001. It was during his term when the College produced consistently CPA board topnotchers and was among the top performing accountancy schools in the CPA board examinations. Prof. Alajar has a master’s degree in business and is now pursuing doctoral studies in business administration.

In a letter sent to Fr. Maranan dated November 26, 2010, Mrs. Concepcion Pijano, PAASCU executive director, congratulated SBC for being reaccredited for the next five years.

The entire Bedan community is very pleased of this latest accomplishment, hoping that this will serve as a springboard for more positive developments for SBC in the future.
