The Bachelor of Science in Communications Technology Management Program is a 4 year degree (including 3 summer semesters) program of the John Gokongwei School of Management. The program started in the mid 1990's and has graduated roughly 1,400 students, a majority of whom are now in the marketing, communications, media, advertising and information technology industries. The program is the brainchild of 3 faculty members, namely: Mr. Rodolfo Ang (Management), Mr. Arnie del Rosario (Computer Science), and the late Ms. Doreen Fernandez (Communications). They created a program that aims to develop Managers for the communications industry (namely: Marketing, Advertising, Media) as well as the Information Technology Industry. It focuses on the management expertise of the BS Management Program while injecting subjects in communications and information technology to develop a more holistic manager for the industry. In the end, the students who graduate with a BS Comtech degree is a manager that understands both the management and the creative processes of the industry.

What makes the BS Comtech program different from the other Management programs of the John Gokongwei School of Management?

The program is specially designed for students who have a knack for creativity in their lives.  Whether you are interested in music, painting, or even acting, the management foundation that you will get in the program will eventually help you in managing your own music band, art gallery or celebrity career.  If you are interested in graphic designing or are very amused at the creative advertisements seen on TV, the program will help sharpen your creative minds as well as help you understand how these things affect the overall health of a business.
