Business as a science, as an art and as the object of both the intellect and will, is anchored on the philosophical triad: Philosophical Imperatives, Ethics and Social Responsibility.

As a science, business has its body of principles and theories. As an art, business has its policies, strategies and practices. As the object of the intellect and will, the business process leads to an ultimate objective of satisfying human needs which in turn goes further into the objective of enhancing quality of life and quality of society.

Business education provides the foundation of learning about established and accepted principles of business management and strategies; presents the ethical perspective of what business might and ought not to do according to the set of legal and moral standards; and promotes the holistic development of the business students by providing avenues for them to go through the process of professional and personal development by enriching their knowledge, enhancing their skills and reinforcing their values.

Corollary to this, the College of Business Administration and Accountancy of the University of Northern Philippines aims to produce globally competitive professionals in business and allied fields. The students are trained to become competent, dedicated, development oriented, socially responsive and morally upright professionals and community leaders.

-From the Dean

Philosophical imperatives give business a mind, ethics give business a conscience and social responsibility gives business a heart.

-Roberto Lazaro, Ph. D.
