About institute of management
The Institute of Management (IM) was formally created on May 24, 2011, during the term of Dr. Gerardo I. Mendoza, the 3rd President of BASC through the BASC Board of Trustees’ approval during its meeting last May 24, 2011, held at BASC Conference Room. The Institute traces its roots to the former Institute of Bio-Resource Sciences and Management (IBSM) which was later renamed the Institute of Agriculture (IA) after separating its Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness Management Program (BSAM).
The Institute of Management was formed through the merging into one institute of the three management program offerings, namely, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness Management (BSAM), and Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management (BSHM) which were formerly part of the three other institutes. BSAM was taken from the former Institute of Bio-resource, Science, and Management, now College of Agriculture; BSBA came from the Institute of Arts, and Sciences, Education and Graduate Studies (IEASEGS), now Institute of Education, Arts, and Sciences (IEAS); while BSHM was previously part of Institute of Engineering and Applied Technology (IEAT).
The first Dean of IM was Mr. Cesar T. Villanueva and later succeeded by Dr. Ronald Reagan T. Alonzo and Ms. Jennifer I. Guevarra. At present, Dr. Rodrigo G. Buenaventura is its incumbent Dean.
