Filipino Institute now offers affordable Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program


- Advertisment -

Through the Filipino Institute, Filipinos abroad will now be able to pursue their Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. 

The program is being offered in partnership with the Philippine Christian University. 

According to Mr. Gabriel John Rimando, the founder and president of the Filipino Institute, Filipinos abroad and in the Philippines will now earn a quality Ph.D. degree within a reasonable time and price. 

“We are sharing this great news for our kababayans who wish to continue getting Ph.D. which I believe will be very essential in the future,” he added noting that non-Filipinos can also avail of the program. 

Rimando urged MBA students to take Ph.D. classes and to improve their abilities to understand and solve problems, increase confidence, make themselves a better communicator, and gain skills that may lead to a better job, even in many fields apart from academics. 

Apart from offering a Ph.D., students who wish to reach their career goals with a graduate business degree may also avail of the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) under the same program. 

Both programs will be offered through the virtual learning system. 


For Ph.D., students are required to send diploma and transcript of records. 

For MBA, students only need to send a transcript of records. 


Those who will graduate from MBA will receive two certificates: one from the Philippines attested by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and one from Switzerland.
