The College of Business, Management and Accountancy (CBMA) extension service goes beyond its primary mission to serve as a comprehensive community of providing access to instruction, research and extension services to improve the quality of life for all residents in its service area. Through these extension services, opportunities are created for both education and training.
The extension service of the college works to connect students to their adopted communities and cultivate an awareness of community needs. It encourages students to become civic conscious, which can be in the form of individual volunteerism or involvement in the community. The CBMA strives to create opportunities that give students a valuable out-of-classroom experience as well as provide opportunities to build their social responsibility. They maintain partnerships with both internal and external experts on matters of community extension and service-learning.
Students, faculty, and staff can become involved in their community by taking advantage of the numerous opportunities that the CBMA extension service provides. Recent projects have included TESDA-Accredited Food and Beverage Training, Tree growing/planting activity at the mangrove area of Barangay Agustin Navarra, Municipality of Ivisan, Capiz.
The college maintains partnerships with organizations such as the TESDA, DENR, DTI and many others. Action, commitment, service, and learning are all integral parts of the college experience and there is always a need for dedicated faculty, students and project leaders willing to contribute to the betterment of the communities. The college strives to enable students to take a positive approach to broaden their perspectives and experience. Students can contribute their input as to ideas and projects they would like to see developed within their community. The CBMA is mobilizing students to work on projects that improve the short and long-term civic, economic and environmental sustainability of its residents and communities.
