In 1974, Director P. Ramon C. Reyes established the Graduate School for Business Administration with only the Master in Business Administration Program (MBA) as the department’s initial program offering. Meanwhile, Dean Theodoro T. Abrigo, in 1980, instituted the Master in Business Administration Special Management Program (MBA SMP), a first-rate graduate program designed solely for the business executives, managers and leaders.
Subsequently, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) was launched in 1995 under the Dean Perfecto Panuelos with the aim of intensifying the theoretical knowledge of MBA graduates and further sharpen their managerial and leadership skills.
For over 40 years, distinguished university professors and well-known industry practitioners have become part of the teaching and learning history of the Letran Graduate School. Likewise, its dynamic academic set-up and serene campus have been home to many individuals who have risen to important work positions and professional recognitions.
