A nucleus of young professionals coming from various professions – academe, business, information technology, health industry – conceived of an idea of establishing an educational institution in Laguna that would educate and train students for industry-based employment on a very affordable tuition and yet maintain high standard of instruction.This nucleus considered that the region is teeming with industries. Deciding to give flesh to the spirit of their ideas, these young professionals, armed with faith in their dreams, passion for teaching, and with youthful vigor, established DON BOSCO INSTITUTE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES on June, 2011 when it inaugurated its first campus in Cabuyao, Laguna.
It started with a few students enrolled in the 2-year Computer Programming course. The first year wasvery difficult. But the following school year, June 2012, the enrollment took a leap from a few students to more than 400 new ones. This rapid and considerable increase in enrollment could be attributed to the reasonable and affordable tuition package of the school and to the words of mouth of students who extol the quality of education at Don Bosco. Due, in great measure, to thesestrengths, DON BOSCO INSTITUTE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES, INC. has flourished as an outstanding technical institution in Laguna.
The courses offered expanded to cover 2-Year programs Information Technology, Office Management, and Tourism, all duly recognized by TESDA. It has maintained enviable enrollment since its inception. In 2013, DBIAS took a bold step in offering BS Computer Science, duly recognized by CHED.
In June 2014, residents of Binan and nearby towns started to see a new DBIAS campus in the very heart of the City of Binan. June 2014 would also usher in two new courses offered by DBIAS in all campuses – B.S. Accounting Technology and B.S. Entrepreneurship. In 2015, it changed its name into Don Bosco Global College to make it more apropos to the expanding reach of its brand of education. In June 2016, it opened its Senior Highschool Department with more than a thousand enrollees while the College Department introduced BS in Tourism Management. After six challenging but exciting years, the institution has finally answered the clamor of the many who seek a school name that would truly represent the culture, spirit, and nature of the institution. Today, the school shall be formally known as the CITI GLOBAL COLLEGE (CGC). CITI stand for Center for Information Technology and Interdisciplinarity.
CGC is still in its nascent years, but the warm response of the community and its people emboldens the institute to go farther and do better. With the noble dictum, improving “man as man,” CGCvows to continually extend, innovate and improve its services to present and future studentsand take part in nation building through education.
