The privilege of educating young Filipinos was a task Prof. Tomas B. Lopez took to heart. Serving a city in which governance meant bringing progress to its citizens, his 19 years of leadership at the University of Makati embodied the same sense of innovation and the same value of placing constituents at the center of leadership. In almost two decades, he has proven that when we embrace innovation in education, when we create an environment where our students are enabled to prosper, then we truly fulfill the promise of education in the development of nations.
The University of Makati signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Medipass, Ltd and Asian Touch International last May 31, 2018 at Tokyo, Japan which expanded the Industry Partners Program into South Asia.
