Reviews of BS in Management Accounting graduates:

K. L.
◈ Studied BS Management, Major in Accounting (slightly different course)
◈ At Ateneo de Davao University
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose : The very reason why I chose this course is because I've seen my brother fare well in his career being a graduate of BS Management. Right now he is a high-earning employee, manager, to be specific. Seeing that his course gave him the key to such a wonderful opportunity, I was enticed to take up a course similar or related to what he took. Now this course, Bs Management, was something I found that fit perfectly to my own criteria and which was also a bit more challenging than my brother's course as it has a major. In the same way the course my brother took helped him, I was hoping that this course would also lead me to a fulfilling job and prepare me for the big competitive world after graduation.

list bulletAbout my college education: I learned to be more knowledgeable in the aspects of business management and accounting. I did not find any subject difficult. Accounting was enjoyable for me. I pass all the subjects but a few in our class repeated taking the exams. It is very important to have an ambition and to be determined in being the best one could be.

list bulletMy current job: I am now an administrative assistant in Aboitiz Power Co., assisting the administration manager; I am now handling logistics, personnel travels, and other administrative work.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I learned to be always excellent in every task I do and not to count my labor. This helped me in my current job in the sense that I am able to handle all the pressure and take it as a challenge or chance for self-improvement, rather than see it as a way to dislike my job because of the high demands.

As an administrative assistant, I have to always perform at my best. In the same way that the school has inculcated in me the sense of "doing more" or being excellent, I also do the same in my job which helps me become a better, more significant employee each passing day.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After graduation I was hired in Rizal Commercial Bank in Davao City as a teller.

list bulletDo I recommend studying : Major in Accounting is good in learning the basics and concepts of good management of a business. Studying this course is preparatory to having a high-paying career. Likewise, it gives a neophyte in business the practical background to understanding accounting, auditing, personnel management, and making feasibility studies for a business project.
