About Far Eastern University, Manila, Philippines

Far Eastern University started out as a dream, born virtually out of its founder’s head, Dr. Nicanor Reyes, in 1928 with the help of a reputed group of educators from the Department of Economics in University of the Philippines.

The university practically began life as the Institute of Accountancy that initially offered a three-year program designed to meet the minimum requirements for the certified public accountant examination.

In order to respond to the needs of the times, the Institute soon branched out to other
fields of study. A year after, it became the Institute of Accounts, Business and Finance (IABF).

In November 1933, FEU became a result of the fusion of Far Eastern College which offered courses in the liberal arts founded in 1919 and the IABF which offered courses in accountancy, economics, business administration, and banking and finance founded in 1929.
