After conducting a campus tour for incoming senior high school students and college freshmen last June, Mapúa University (MU) hosted an Open Campus, which was spearheaded by the Admissions Office, to promote the health sciences and business programs offered at the University’s new Makati campus along Pablo Ocampo Sr. Extension last July 16.

Kickstarting the event, Partnership Executive Director of the Mapúa-Cintana-Arizona State University (ASU) Alliance, Dr. Bonifacio T. Doma Jr., introduced the school’s collaboration with ASU through Cintana Education, a public benefit corporation in the United States. Through this partnership, the University hopes to expand the access of Filipino students to quality international education within the fields of business and health sciences.

He added that MU is the only Philippine university that is part of the international alliance. Apart from ASU, the Cintana Alliance includes the Universitas Esa Unggul in Indonesia, Galala University in Egypt, Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara in Mexico, Istanbul Bilgi University in Turkey, University of Donja Gorica in Montenegro, Universidad Latina de Costa Rica in Costa Rica, Almaty Management University in Kazakhstan, Universidad Internacional del Ecuador in Ecuador, The NorthCap University in India, and American University Kyiv in Ukraine.

The programs offered under this partnership starting A.Y. 2022-2023 are Bachelor of Science in Accountancy, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Major in Financial Management, Marketing Management, or Operations Management), Bachelor of Science in Biology, Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Master of Arts in Psychology.  These programs will start being offered at the University’s eight-story campus in Makati.

According to Dr. Doma, students who will be graduating under these programs will receive a diploma stating the University’s collaboration with ASU. Under the school’s business and health sciences programs, students will be provided access to world-class content and curricula from ASU as well as participate in Global Signature Courses through and virtually join other international students from member schools in state-of-the-art global classrooms

Moreover, students will have more opportunities for international student exchange and short-term summer immersion programs. With this, Mapúa faculty members will also be given chances to participate in international academic engagements and training.

The partnership will be available to both students of MU as well as its subsidiaries such as Malayan Colleges Laguna and Malayan Colleges Mindanao. Education under the ASU-Cintana alliance will be built on three core pillars – international exposure, real-world learning, and digital enhancement.

After presenting the benefits that the students and faculty members will get from the collaboration, two separate orientations were conducted for the students taking the health sciences and business programs in the upcoming academic year. The programs offered under the partnership with ASU were discussed further.

The University will be holding another session to discuss the health sciences and business programs for aspiring Mapúans, tomorrow, July 30, Saturday. Register here:
