The Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA) program of Maryhill College Inc. is a four-year course designed to produce competent and ethical professional accountants capable of making a positive contribution over their lifetimes to the profession and society in which they prefer work.
As per Commission on Higher Education Memorandum Order No. 03 series of 2007.

The BSA program should provide a foundation of professional knowledge, professional skills, and professional values, ethics, and attitudes that enable them to contribute to learn and adapt to change throughout their professional lives. (Article III, Section 14)
Preparing students for the CPA licensure examination and for employment in private establishments and the public sector are the subsidiary objectives which should judiciously blend with the primary goal of preparing students for a successful long-term professional accounting career in accountancy.
