1.     to attract, educate, and train high-quality individuals to become ethical leaders in the public and private sectors

2.     to do research so as to advance knowledge, by using strong conceptual foundations to identify and solve management problems - focusing on national, regional, and global issues

3.     to act as a focal point for developing the capacity of Cambodiaís human resources in the fields of management, accounting, and economics.

Two-thirds of all Bachelorís courses taken are common for all students of the College. They involve introductory courses in various disciplines, designed to provide the necessary background for further in-depth study in one of the offered disciplines in College of Managementís areas of concentration. They also aim to encourage the development of basic analytical, quantitative and computing skills. By the end of these, students will have developed a broad understanding of basic business principles, and so will be better able to make an informed choice regarding an area of specialization that suits their interests and career objectives.

The remainder of the program provides an in-depth study of a particular area of concentration, to compliment the studentís breadth of knowledge across all functional areas of a business enterprise. During their final year, students have the option of undertaking a project under the supervision of a faculty member.
