Management and Organization Department (MOD)

The Management and Organization Department (MOD) is a synergy of two significant historic streams in business education in De La Salle University. The first stream emerged from the former Graduate School of Business which first offered the Master of Business Education Program in 1960 and the Doctor of Management Program in 1981 (which was later renamed as the Doctor of Business Administration). The GSB became one of the country's leading business schools in the country by providing relevant professional and scholarly business education characterized by a strong practitioner orientation to working managers and employees, entrepreneurs and academics. It made itself more accessible to working professionals by establishing extension campuses near the business districts in La Salle Green Hills in Mandaluyong (1996) and in RCBC Plaza in Makati (2001). GSB established a leadership role in Philippine management education when it required business ethics courses for its DBA (1981) and MBA (1998) students. This was further followed through with Sustainable Business in the DBA program in 2003 and Family and Work-life Harmony and Human Rights, Social Responsibility and & Sustainable Development in 2004. The GSB formally joined the international community of business schools committed to educating socially responsible managers when it signed up for the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education in 2009.

Marketing Management

Marketing Management is designed to develop students for entrepreneurial or corporate work in marketing management and for them to be trainable for higher responsibilities in the same firm. The students are taught the theories and concepts in the classroom, and then they are given training on the practical aspects of the various areas of marketing by exposure to actual work situations through assignments in organizations (either for profit or non-profit).
