CBEM topnotchers are back

2 BUeño takers claim top 6, 7 spots for this year’s CPALE

Six years after Monico Paulo B. Rañosa landed on the top 10 of the October 2015 Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination (CPALE), the College of Business Economics and Management has produced two more topnotchers based on 2022 CPALE results.

Emmanuel Z. Jerusalem claimed the top 6 spot with an 87.17% average while Bethany Jayne I. Carizo, the 2020 Most Outstanding Graduate in Academic Excellence, landed top 7 with an 86.63% average. This year, CBEM earned a 45.71% passing rate over a 22.29% national passing rate with 16 passers out of 35 examinees.

It can be recalled that last year, the university landed on the unofficial list of the Best Schools for Accountancy in the Philippines with a board exam passing rate of 76%. The university also shared the spotlight with the top performing universities in the Philippines according to the results from the October 2016 CPALE with an 84.93% passing rate.

In 2015, BU recorded a laudable 94.20% passing rate producing 65 out of 69 CPAs over a national passing rate of 41.06%.
