What is B.S MAC

BS Management of Applied Chemistry, or MAC, is the first academic program of its kind in the Philippines. It is a combination of two unlikely partners: Management and Chemistry. Launched in 1995, it is designed to develop managers and entrepreneurs for chemistry-based industries: business people with a strong technical background and working familiarity with the chemical processes used in manufacturing operations.
This 4-year program draws together courses from the disciplines of Management and Chemistry to create a science-based entrepreneurship program with a strong hands-on and project orientation. Chemistry is taught from a more applied perspective, and the
accompanying laboratory work will focus on more practical approaches.
The Industrial Chemistry course, designed specifically for students enrolled in this
program, will expose MAC majors to basic manufacturing processes and operations of chemistry-based industrial concerns, using a combination of lectures and plant visits. Students are also given hands-on experience in the production of a wide range of simple chem-based products, such as paints, essential oils, and food flavorings.
The centerpiece of the program is a sequence of courses that requires students to use market research to identify unfilled product niches in the market, go to the laboratory to design the product that will fill this niche, and then create and execute a business plan to launch and market this new product.
Students who would like to start up their own small-scale manufacturing ventures or work in businesses dealing with chemistry-based products such as pharmaceuticals, processed foods, rubber, personal care products and plastics will benefit from the training provided by this program.
