ROXAS CITY—Classes for the Master of Management (MM) offered by the University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) will begin here next month.

Under said program, UPV offers two MM specializations, namely: Business Management and Public Management.

The function room of El Circulo Convention Center in Pueblo de Panay, a residential-commercial township in Brgy. Lawaan will serve as classroom for the first batch of students.

Owing to the lack of faculty members, only 30 students were registered for the pioneer batch.

In a recent Memorandum of Agreement signing at said convention center, Prof. Mary Ann Gumban, UPV’s college of management dean said that the Masters of Management courses were chosen because they are in line with the development in Capiz.

Capiz Gov. Victor Tanco, Sr., UPV Chancellor Rommel Espinosa and Pueblo de Panay President and Chief Executive Officer Jose Nery Ong led the ceremonies.

The organizers said a building inside the Pueblo de Panay educational zone will be built in the future should there be more students. Other courses will soon be offered.


Ong stressed that UPV offering courses here does not signify that a campus has been built here; it is rather an extension of their services.

He said that UPV offering courses in Roxas City can serve as a “catalyst of growth in Capiz and Northern Panay.”

Around the 1980s, UPV had also offered for Capiz courses in Masters of Management.
