In a time of global economies and merging industries, a good, strong educational foundation is crucial to be successful in the world. Moving to fully realize its vision to be among the best universities in the world, Mapúa University (MU) pursues credentials and accreditations to continually produce globally competitive graduates. Part of MU’s long-term initiative is to ensure students’ professional readiness and competitiveness. As students gain additional knowledge on their future professions, they also get a boost in their English proficiency through the TOEIC® Program, developing their communication skills further to meet global standards.

“Working towards a vision of becoming an international center of excellence and of ranking among the best universities in the world, we move to build our international credentials through accreditations and strengthen our research capability through faculty development and international partnerships. An engineer, architect, or IT professional is not only expected to realize and address the technical components of a given problem, but must also have the capacity to articulate ideas and solutions through quality communication.” says Mapúa President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea.

Studies show that communication skills are one of the contributing factors for employment, and Mapúa University recognizes the importance of English in the workplace. Since 2010, several hundreds of students have already taken the international certification, ensuring competitive proficiency levels of all graduates, giving Mapúans the choice and chance to pursue a career here and abroad.

The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC®) is one of the most widely used and respected English-language assessments and certifications in the world. TOEIC® is recognized by 14,000 companies in 160 countries, including LG Electronics, Shell, Accenture, and Canon, providing opportunities for graduates inside and outside the country. Deciding to provide TOEIC to its students, the university is a step closer in fulfilling its goals as one element of globalization is to ensure a competitive communication skill. With the TOEIC® program, the university is assured that the students will not just be tested, but are also provided intervention programs, capacitating students to make active choices in maintaining and improving their English skills during their stay in Mapúa.

Mapúa University has already taken the first step to certify its students’ English proficiency. To ensure that your institution is on its way to English excellence and be certified, it’s your turn to utilize a global certification like TOEIC®.
