The Professional Building shall house the College of Business and Accountancy, the Graduate School and the College of Law. According to Engr. Dhon Dungca, Director of Campus Services & Development, the construction proper is expected to commence before the year ends and it is expected to be finished a year after, in late 2012. The building will have additional about 50 classrooms, computer laboratories, case rooms of different sizes, discussion rooms for debates, lounge for students, a library and a Moot Court for the Law School, an auditorium with a 350+ seating capacity at the top floor and an air-conditioned food court at the basement.


The construction of the building is part of the administration’s 10-year Campus Development Plan which started 5 years ago. Previous projects that have been completed include the Chapel of the Guardian Angel, the 8-storey St. Joseph Building and the Paseo de San Angelo. On-going projects include the renovation of the Archbishop Pedro Santos (APS) Building and the construction of a dormitory.
