Mapúa great at 98

Mapúa will unveil its Centennial Logo to herald the official countdown to its centennial anniversary in 2025.


Mapúa University is celebrating its 98th Founding Anniversary with the theme “Great at 98! Vision Realized.”

In 2022, Mapúa was included in the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023 where only four Philippine universities were ranked, and in the QS Asian University Top 100 best universities in Southeast Asia Rankings.

The university also received a QS-Wharton Digital Readiness Gold Award for its Ubiquitous Online Experience for delivering fully online programs through its digital learning platforms. It also cemented international collaborations with Arizona State University for its business and health sciences programs, the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance of the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, and Fintech Alliance Ph for its Fintech and Regulatory Innovation program.

Mapúa will host The Cardinal Excellence Awards which recognizes outstanding students in their co- and extra-curricular activities, and the Service Awards, which honors loyal and dedicated teaching and non-teaching staff.

Competitions such as the “Outcomes-Based Education Research and Best Practices,” Technopreneur Pitch Contest, Essay Writing Contest, Ethics Bowl, Leadership Seminar, Filipino Writing Contest, Physics Olympics, and Math Wizard will also be conducted.

The educational institution will also distribute gift packs to disadvantaged families. Communities in Bangued, Abra will receive access to affordable and free energy through solar panel installations. This effort is part of Mapúa’s commitment to addressing the seventh United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (Affordable and Clean Energy). It covers the Cordillera Region until 2030.

To cap the festivities, Mapúa will unveil its Centennial Logo to herald the official countdown to its centennial anniversary in 2025. It will also launch its Centennial Lectures, a series of 100 lectures led by school officials and alumni, that touch on research, education, technology, innovations, internationalization, the school’s history, and other special topics.

The institution is expected to launch new business and health sciences programs in collaboration with Arizona State University, produce its first batch of FTRI graduates through its CCAF and FTAP partnership, and increase its globally accredited program offerings via the ASEAN University Network-Quality Assurance Network.
