The dean of Adamson University’s College of Business Administration (CBA) has been recognized as an outstanding educator by the leading association of educators involved in business education.
Dr Carl Mark Miniano was recognized as this school year’s Outstanding Business Educator in the field of Management by the Philippine Council of Deans and Educators in Business (PCDEB) during the council’s 12th Annual Conference on last February 18 and 19 at the Philippine Columbian Association in Paco, Manila. This award comes to Dr Miniano through the PCDEB’s Search for Outstanding Business Educators, which is conducted yearly to honor the best business professors across the various fields of business education.
Dr Miniano has been instrumental in moving the college forward to achieve greater accomplishments. He began teaching in 1999, handling management and finance subjects before becoming chairperson of the Economics, Management, Marketing, Banking and Finance Department in 2007. When he became dean of the college in 2010, the college saw remarkable improvements, including the formation and streamlining of its departments, improved performance in the licensure examinations, and the formation of the CBA Alumni Society.
An alumnus of the university, Dr Miniano finished his BS Commerce degree major in management in 1995 and graduated from the MBA program in 2001. He finished his doctorate degree in management in 2008.
Aside from Dr Miniano, another Adamsonian mentor was also honored in the conference. Prof. Jonathan de Leon, MBA, faculty member and former chairperson of the Management department, was accepted and accredited by the PCDEB as Associate Fellow in Business Education. The accreditation is given by the Philippine Academy of Professionals in Business Education (PAPBE), the accrediting arm of PCDEB for professors and mentors that is based on merits, performance, and contribution.
The PCDEB was established in 2001 with the primary objective of enhancing and upgrading the quality of business education in the country through various development programs. These enhancements and upgrades are aimed at ensuring input by business education professionals to national development and economic recovery efforts. Dean Jose Ma. Gonzales, PhD, former CBA dean, served as PCDEB president during school year 2006-2007.
This recent honor conferred to one of Adamson’s mentors is proof that the college is in capable hands, and that professors and administrators of the college are continuously aiming for excellence and achievement.
