May 31, 2015, 8:48 p.m. – UST IS set to open Master in
Business Administration (MBA) classes in the middle of a bustling business
district in Taguig, under a partnership with the country’s largest business
group.

The MBA program will be the pilot program in what will be
the University’s first off-campus site at McKinley Hill in Taguig. The
announcement of the historic development was made Saturday by Graduate School
Dean Dr. Marilu Madrunio during the school’s annual solemn investiture.

Classes will start next academic year at the building of the
Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), known as the Commerce and
Industry Plaza. The opening of UST MBA classes in Taguig will be made possible
under a partnership between the University and PCCI, a non-stock, non-profit organization
of micro, small, medium, and large enterprises.

In 2013, the Graduate School began extension arrangements
with the University of San Agustin for its Master of Laws and Master of Science
(MS) in Pharmacy programs, and with Ateneo de Davao for Master of Arts (MA) in
Architecture.

Last March 12 to 14, a team from the Philippine Association
of Colleges and Universities Commission in Accreditation (PACUCOA) visited the
UST Graduate School in connection with its application for Level IV
accreditation, the highest recognition, for its MBA, MS Pharmacy, MS Medical
Technology, and MA in Education programs. The Graduate School is preparing to
apply for PACUCOA Level IV accreditation for all its other master’s programs in
September.

The UST Graduate School 
has 62 graduate programs, with the MBA program having the largest number
of students with a total of 223 enrollees last semester. Bianca Kristin A. Taray
