In an effort to further boost its academic curriculum and as it adapts the Emirates’ Qualification Framework of the National Qualifications Authority, the Filipino Institute management will provide its trainers a chance to study Masters of Business Administration free-of-charge.
The scholarship program is offered to the training institute’s administrative staff, former, tenured, and new trainers teaching in professional diplomas, short-term courses, and face-to-face classes.
“Filipino Institute is embracing a new academic curriculum wherein we’re adapting the qualification framework by the National Qualification Authority of the UAE. In line with this, more substantial preparation is required and will become ever more necessary as we accept nursery, primary, secondary, and tertiary students,” Mr. Gabriel John Rimando, the founder and president of the Filipino Institute and publisher of The Global Filipino Magazine, said.
The free MBA program for the administrative employees and trainers will be done via face-to-face and virtual classes. The face-to-face classes will be done on the Dubai campus; while those on remote campuses and offices and other countries are urged to take the program via virtual class.
The orientation for the face-to-face MBA class will start on Friday, January 15, while the online class will kick off on the same day from 10 am.
“With this initiative, we will be able to further boost the quality of education we’re providing to the Filipino community here in the Middle East,” Rimando said.
“This is also part of our preparation to offer applied bachelor program to our kababayans. With this, our trainers will be more than qualified to teach and equipped with the right knowledge,” he further added.
Applied Bachelor will kick off in August, however, the registration for the academic school year 2021 will start next month.
Last November, the Filipino Institute has celebrated its fifth founding anniversary and proudly announced producing more than 100,000 graduates from 2015 until 2020. The training centre’s headquarters is located at the 604, Al Zarooni Building, Al Rigga, Dubai, with remote campuses in Al Ain, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi. The Filipino Institute has also campuses in Bahrain and Qatar.
Rimando, at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, has given several scholarship programs to various Filipinos abroad whose work has been affected by the crisis.
Those who wish to avail of the free MBA program are required to have their names enlisted by contacting Mr. Ace Garing at +971 54 461 7687.
