HISTORY

Business is changing as quickly as the world around it.

New information technologies, legislation, and global political and economic realities all affect the world of commerce.

Recognizing the need for relevant and well-rounded education, the Philippine Women’s University established the College of Business Administration.

It was the first private school to offer a four-year course in business administration in 1978

In 1975, CBA was renamed the Conrado Benitez Institute for Business Education (CBIBE) to honor the memory of Dean Conrado Benitez, founder of the College.

Continuing the tradition of service and academic excellence, CBIBE produces graduates who are not only equipped with skills for a job market but who also can lead in raising the ethical standards and practices of the business community.
