The LCCM MBA in Technology and Entrepreneurship and MBA in Hotel and Tourism Management Programs are pioneering and innovative graduate programs in the country. It seeks to answer the urgent need of both the academe and industry to produce leaders with a proper balance of knowledge and skills in business, hospitality management +IT and entrepreneurship. CHED has recently issued separate CMOs on Entrepreneurship and Hospitality Management for undergraduate programs, but no corresponding CMO for graduate programs to support the former. These two programs will fill the gap. Tourism, which includes the various sub-sectors, is considered the biggest industry in the country in terms of revenue contribution to the Phil. Economy. This also holds true to major economies in Asia-Pacific and Europe.
However, there is a lack of trained professionals and industry leaders who are equipped with adequate knowledge on the principles and practices in tourism, including problem-solving skills and leadership abilities to address the complex issues facing the industry. LCCM's School of Business and School of HRM and Tourism have been conducting pioneering undergraduate programs for almost 5 and 3 decades respectively. These two proposed Programs will create a synergy with its other programs in BS Entrepreneurship and BSIT conducted by its School of IT and CS.
