The College of Technopreneurship and Business Management (COTBM) of CTU Danao has progress taking shape in another milestone, affirmed by CHEDRO VII Regional Director Maximo Aljibe who graced the ceremony on Saturday, September 12.

In what appeared to be quite a long wait for Dean Jose Marie Anoos, the turnover ceremony of Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) to two programs of the college was befitting the year-round preparation of requirements validated by CHEDRO VII Quality Team (QAT) in May of 2019.

Dr. Aljibe awarded the COPC, effective Academic Year 2019-2020, to Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management (BSHM) and Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management (BSTRM), chaired by  Prof. Marie Kris Giango and Dr. Ludimie Capuyan, respectively.

Having produced more than hundreds of graduates for more than a decade, the college has been at the fore in harnessing the potentials of  students to sustain global presence for the most part. A game-changer for the college was its goal of expanding the curriculum in offering BSTRM  a couple of years back.

Since 2016, batches of interns were sent to various hotels and restaurants abroad, earning recognition and world-class experience in those top-of-the-line establishments.

While the conduct of assessment gave opportunities for more developed skills to emerge among learners, it also empowered the faculty in that they  engaged in more productive activities that  positively impacted students who landed jobs in the hospitality and travel industries.

Another aspect that factored into the validation process was  the college’s master plan in providing a separate building for its growing population. With its construction underway, CTU Danao can only hope for more from Dr. Anoos and the faculty. UICPA
