The College of Business (COB) is one of eight undergraduate and graduate schools of De La Salle University . It was established in 1920 as the College of Commerce, when the University began offering a two-year commercial course. In 1931, the Bachelor of Science in Commerce degree was first conferred after a third year was added to the initial two-year program.

In 1957, the College underwent its formal first survey by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities. Now known as the College of Business and Economics, it is home to two academic departments, which have been recognized by the Commission on Higher Education as Centers of Development, Business Management and Economics.

In AY 2010-2011, the College of Business and Economics has formally separated into two entities: The College of Business (COB) and the School of Economics (SOE). College of Business focuses on attracting aspiring students who later became business professionals, future professors or faculty who would like to share or contribute his or her knowledge by helping other aspiring students in formation of being a business professional.

Students of the COB may opt to specialize in any of the following fields: Accountancy Business Management or Applied Corporate Management Legal Management Management of Financial Institution Marketing Management Advertising Management

The College also offers a double-degree (Liberal Arts-Commerce or LIA-COM) program in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts, that combines a Bachelor of Arts major with that of Accountancy or Commerce, major in any other business program. Its administrative offices are located at the St. La Salle Hall.

It is currently the largest College of the University in terms of students. Many of its alumni have distinguished themselves as assuming top-level positions in the academe, business and industry, and government, such as Jose Diokno, Alberto Romulo, and Enrique Zobel.[citation needed]
