New CBA Cal Dean Recognized for Outstanding Business Administration Research Output


In connection with his scholarly contribution in the field of business and economic research, Dr. Louie A. Divinagracia, the Dean of the UE College of Business Administration-Caloocan (CBA Caloocan) as of May 2, 2018, was recently recognized by De La Salle University (DLSU) for his scientific paper publications that were published in high quality and peer-reviewed academic journals.

Dean Divinagracia’s aforesaid journals were indexed in reputable indexing databases such as Scopus and ISI. Using the Scopus citation database, his paper on “Evaluating Firm’s Sustainable Production Indicators in Uncertainty” was found to be one of the most-cited published research works by a Filipino in the field of business administration for at least the past three consecutive years. He also co-authored a paper with Dr. Maria Rochelle G. Divinagracia, former Dean of UE CBA Manila, while he was serving as Dean of the Faculty of Business at Universitas Pelita Harapan Surabaya in Indonesia several years ago. The two are alumni of both DLSU and the University of the Philippines at Los Banos (UPLB).

On average, Dean Divinagracia has written or co-written at least one scientific paper every year since he began his full-time academic career at UPLB in the early 1980s. More than half of these have been published in refereed academic journals and conference proceedings in the country and abroad, with his first international publication written while pursuing his graduate studies at Kansas State University in the United States on a USAID fellowship grant.

Dean Divinagracia is a recipient of the Ten Outstanding Youth Scientists of the Philippines award that was conferred by the Science Foundation of the Philippines; and the Outstanding Paper Award by the Asia Pacific Business Innovation and Technology Management Society. He is a Fellow of the Salzburg Global Seminar, a member of the Academy of International Business, and currently sits in the Editorial Advisory Board of the Philippine Academy of Management Journal.

Congratulations and welcome to UE, Dean Divinagracia!
