The University of Makati traces its roots from Makati Polytechnic Community College, which was founded in 1972. Due to the growing number of curricular offerings, its status was elevated in 1987 to that of a full-fledged college, and was then renamed Makati College. Three years later, it was merged with the former Fort Andres Bonifacio College on January 10, 1990. This event paved the way for the transformation of the college into a university.
By virtue of Municipal Ordinance No. 433, the Pamantasan ng Makati became a chartered university on December 19, 1991 under the administration of Jejomar C. Binay. On August 27, 2002, City Ordinance 2002-111 was approved amending City Ordinance No. 99-443 revising the Pamantasan ng Makati Charter to change the official name of Pamantasan ng Makati to University of Makati.
