    History

    Facing the commercial center of the municipality of Daraga, Albay in the campus cornered by Rizal and Regidor Streets is the young Bicol University College of Business, Economics and Management. Spanning three (3) University Presidents and four (4) College Deans, in fourtenn (14) years, the institution of Higher Learning already made its mark not just to its mother town and province but to the entire country and the international community as well.

    Its graduates consistently bring the school to the nation’s best in accountancy licensure examination, many of its alumni have become successful professionals locally and in other countries, its faculty members are recognized by national professional organizations, its extension activities have benefitted the region’s local government units, and its research outputs have landed in the international refereed journals.

    The BUCBEM, as its called, legally started as a college on September 10, 2004 wit the implemetation of the Comprehensive Bicol University Development following Board of Regents Resolution 072 s. 2003 dated September 25, 2003 through the leadership of the BU President Dr. Susana C. Cabredo. The Plan created, from the former BU College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), Institute of Computer Science (ICS), and the Institute of Communication and Cultural Studies (ICSS) new colleges namely, the College of Arts and Letters, the College of Science. the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, and this college – the College of Business, Economics and Management. The historical trail of BUCBEM, in whole started with the beginning of the Bicol University itself and was given distinct and full status after the blending of CAS, ICS, and ICCS to become entities with diferrent nomenclatures in 2004.

    Initially, the college consisted of four programs originally coming from the former CAS – Bachelor of Arts in Economics, Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accountancy, BS in Entrepreneurship and BS in Administration, (BSBA) major in Management (which was later on officially  modified to BS in Management). In 2007, the BSBA with majors in  Financial Management, Human Resource Development, Marketing Management and Operations Management was offered. The BS in Accountancy, on the other hand, from within the course. opened a catch program, the BS in Managerial Accounting. The BSBA major in Microfinance was also offered later.

    The College was ably served by three Deans frm April 30, 2005 to April 15, 2015 who were Dr. Edwina N. Morasa (ret.), Dr. Liwayway R. Ables (ret.), and Dr. Ramesis M. Lorino, respectively, under two Presidents, Dr. Susana C. Cabredo and Dr. Fay Lea Patria M. Lauraya. On March 9, 2015 Dr. Arnulfo M. Mascariñas was elected by the BU Board of Regents as the 8th BU President. President Mascariñas designated Dr. Eddie S. See as the 4th College Dean of BUCBEM effective starting April 16, 2015 and Prof. Sonnie A. Ramos as its Associate Dean and Planning Officer.

    On September 27, 2017, the BU Board of Regents approved the CHED Policies, Standards and Guidelines-compliant revisions in the College’s programs and majors. This Board action mainstreamed the programs of the college to only just four (4) – BS in Economics, BS in Accountancy, BS in Entreprenuership and BS in  Business Administration (with majors in Management, Financial Management, Human Resource Management, Master in Entreprenuership, Master in Cooperative Management, Marketing Management, Microfinance, and Operation Management).

    As of 2017, in the Graduate level, the college maintained the offering of Master in Management (MM), MM major in Human Resource Management, Master in Entreprenuership, Master in Cooperative Management, and Master in Economics and transferred to the Jesse Robredo Institute the Master in Public Administration, Ph. D. in Public Administration, and Ph. D. in Development Management Programs.

    Anchored on the foundation and framework laid out in the earlier administrations, and guided by the Vision to become “a world-class university producing leader and change agents for social transformation and development”, the Presidency of Dr. Arnulfo M. Mascariñas and the Deanship of Dr. Eddie S. See successfully acquired all the Certificates of Program Compliance (COPC) of the college namely for  the following, BS in Entrepreneurship, BS in Accountancy and BSBA Programs; PhD in Public Administration and PhD in Development Management graduate programs. During the period, CBEM has likewise raised the AACCUP Level II status of its four original programs to Level III phase I for phase II visit, its BSBA program to Level 1, its Master in Management Program to Level IV, and the Master in Economics to level II.

    The Presidency of Dr. Mascariñas has witnessed an unprecedented massive recruitment and selection of faculty members and engagement in faculty development in the College. Fifteen (15) new faculty members were hired one (1) in the Department of Economics, two (2) in the Department of Entrepreneurship, three (3) in the Department of Accountancy and nine (9) in the Department of Business Administration. The college, since 2016 has granted ten (10) mentors of the Human Resource Development, two (2) for PhD in Agricutural Economics at the University of the Philippines in Los Baños, three (3) for Doctor in Business Administration at the Ateneo de Naga University, three (3) for PhD in Business Administration at the De La Salle University Dasamariñas, one (1) for PhD in Development Management in Bicol University and one (1) for Master in Accountancy at the Ateneo de Naga University.
