By:Dr. Ruel Maningas

In line with our effort to strengthen our academic linkage with the industry, especially the professional service providers, Colegio de San Juan de Letran has forged an agreement on February 10, 2016 with East West Educational Specialists to bring Bloomberg for Education to its stakeholders. East-West Educational Specialists is a leading and pioneer institution engaged in the business of providing fully-loaded outcomes/competency-based seminar, training and certification programs in preparation for the ASEAN and global integration. Bloomberg, on the other hand, is the world's most trusted source for real-time and historical financial data, news, research, and analytics. The partnership will make possible the offering at Letran Calamba of the Bloomberg certification programs in business, finance, accountancy, economics, and management for faculty, employees, students, graduates, and professionals.

Colegio de San Juan de Letran Calamba was represented by its Rector and President, Rev. Fr. Honorato C. Castigador, O.P. Mr. Dennis Franco M. Layug, signed the Memorandum of Agreement as President and CEO of East-West. The signing ceremonies was also graced by Letran Calamba Administrators, some employees and representatives of student-organizations. Ms. Krisa Qiu, Bloomberg Sales/Account Manager also graced the occasion and gave some insights on the technical requirements of said certification program.

As a kick-off activity, the Bloomberg caravan will be held at Letran Calamba on February 23 for graduating students. Official offering of certification programs will start in March 2016.
