The Regional Director of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Director Buen S. Mondejar, recognized the College of Business and Accountancy’s (CB&A) Ladderized Hospitality Management Program. The College has previously sought approval from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), which endorsed the program to TESDA; however, according to Director Mondejar, the school does not need to get a permit to ladderize the program due to the implementation of the Executive Order No. 694.
In response to the thrust of the government to provide a program that will address the needs of the youth and of the industries at present, necessary improvements were made to meet the standards set by TESDA. The Hospitality Management curriculum has embedded two competencies namely, Commercial Cooking in the 1st Year and Bartending in the 2nd Year. These two competencies have been embedded because it is in these areas where the faculty members are proficient with. The faculty members will be made to take the assessment test to make them Certified Trainers of TESDA.
