B.S. Management, Major in Communications
Technology Management
The B.S. Management, major in Communications Technology Management program, more often known simple as Comtech, is one the
most innovative programs offered by the John Gokongwei School of Management. Its first batch of students graduated in 1998, and
the program continues today to be the only one of its kind anywhere in the country.
Comtech is an interdisciplinary program that pulls together courses from the fields of Management, Mass Communication,
Telecommunications and Computer Science, to create a multi-faceted curriculum that develops business leaders and managers
especially equipped for the rapidly changing Communications industry: professionals who are conversant with the creative processes
that drive the industry, as well as the convergent technologies that are transforming it.
Students enrolled in this program will be exposed to both the communications theories and the technological tools that are driving
today’s information society. The program’s flexible design allows students to pursue any one of the three tracks that have been built into
the program: telecommunications, media management, and marketing communications.
Conversely, students may also opt to take a combination of courses offered under the different tracks, rather than to restrict themselves
to any one track in particular.
The program curriculum is heavily project-oriented, and helps the students to develop a strong team orientation that is especially
appropriate to the industry.
Comtech is especially designed to increase the pool of creative, business-oriented, and tech-savvy entrepreneurs and leaders of
organizations that are engaged in marketing, advertising, public relations, media, and telecommunications.

B.S. Information Technology Entrepreneurship
The world of technology, especially information and communications technology (ICT), is inducing sweeping changes in
the way people live, work, communicate, and entertain themselves. These changes create exciting new opportunities for
aspiring young entrepreneurs. The B.S. Information Technology Entrepreneurship, or I.T.E program, is designed to create
a structured and yet vibrant environment for students to become the next generation of high-impact entrepreneurs,
turning their I.T.-based business ideas into actual start-up ventures.
The program curriculum begins with a strong foundation in I.T. fundamentals that will enable students to turn their I.T.-
based product idea into a working prototype. The program then adds to this an overlay of management courses and a
business incubation program that will help students bring their product to market.
Students enrolled in this program may elect to pursue either of two I.T. tracks, Games Development or Applications
Development, to serve as the platform for their new business venture. Students who successfully complete the program
will not be looking for new jobs when they graduate: they will be offering jobs to other young graduates looking to
become part of the next-generation business success story!

Shifting Experiences

“First things first. It is important that you are 100% sure you want to
shift. Go to the guidance, and take a look at the course descriptions
again and perhaps seek some advice from the counselor, it helps...”

“The SOM office will give you a basic list of requirements
[depending on which course you are shifting to and from]... letter of
intent to program director, my contact details, a photocopy of my
grades, and a 2x2 ID photo. When you plan on shifting, be sure that
you do it as soon as possible...”

“...you will need an extraordinary amount of patience and energy
in dealing with the offices... You’ll need to secure a Load Revision
Form, and fill out all the details needed, such as your reasons for
shifting. Then you will have a very long trip of waiting for offices
to sign your papers. Some of the places you’ll need to go to are
SOM, the Registrar, and the ADAA. After this, the program director
will interview you, and he will explain to you the course grade
requirements and subjects...”

“Shifting generally shouldn’t be difficult as long as you meet
the requirements... it’d be better if you went to the department
regularly to know your shifting status (if they don’t already give
it to you at once), or you can check AISIS...[to avoid delays and
confusion in signatures needed and interview schedules]”

Majoring & Minoring Tips

SOM Minors
“Most minors can only be started in 3rd or 4th year, try and take a look at
the subjects you need to take per minor to see which one best suits you.”

Double Minoring
“This situation can be better managed by planning ahead, in my opinion.
Take into consideration the following: (1) possible units during summer
(you’re allowed a maximum of 9); (2) free electives and major electives (most
often in your senior year, though some opt to take these electives earlier).
Knowing these may make it possible to double-minor and finish on time.”

“Will I finish it? - Extremely important; taking subjects for a minor you
suddenly feel no motivation to study for and complete only wastes units -
basically, you’re wasting time and tuition.
What fulfillment do I get from it? - If you actually HAVE an answer to this
question, then you can seriously consider pursuing your minor.... [Increase
of employment opportunities; lack of specialization with core subjects;
personal satisfaction and gratification]”

“There’s no ‘formula’ as to the ‘best’ combination. For so long as you feel
that it contributes to your self-growth and the pursuit of knowledge, then go
on ahead. Minors are an opportunity to break free from the static rigidity of
your major... and gives you different perspectives of the world.”

Double Majoring
“It’s really difficult to double major. Chances are you will be delayed. But
make sure you have good relationships with both departments cause they
will be the ones who will be helping you all throughout. Best to pick a
course that compliments your other course. Try and make your own ‘ideal
IPS and coordinate with the program director to see your options.”
