Working students are some of the most hardworking and dedicated individuals out there. From late nights and early mornings, working students are a true testament that you can do anything you put your heart into.
Despite the challenges that come with balancing work and school, working students continue to persevere, driven by the desire to achieve their dreams and create a better life for themselves and their families.
Good news! Mapúa Malayan Digital College (MMDC) was founded to offer flexible, affordable, accessible, and high-quality education enabling them to cater to working students or those in the workforce who want to return to school and get a degree.
As a school of Business and Technology, MMDC offers B.S. Information Technology Major in Software Development, Network & Cybersecurity, and Data Analytics. They also have B.S. in Business Administration majoring in Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, and Operations Management.
Since MMDC is a fully digital college, the set-up is all online where mentors give projects and milestones that students have to finish weekly. Instead of traditional exams and quizzes, students learn through the Projects, Problems, and Cases method. Through this learning method, students will be able to exercise their application, analytical thinking, critical thinking, and creativity skills.
Students are only required to attend 7.5 hours per week of synchronous classes with professors. They can even choose from morning, afternoon, and evening schedules. This gives the student more control over their time especially if they are working.

One of the reasons why many Filipinos don’t pursue higher education is because of financial constraints. Colleges can be quite expensive and not many have access to affordable quality education, especially in provinces. MMDC is answering that pain point by making sure that students can access its college from anywhere while providing affordable programs.
Though MMDC is fully digital, they still have traditional programs like student activities, student clubs, student services, and many more, to ensure students have a meaningful college experience. They also have learning hubs in Ayala Malls Cloverleaf Quezon City and Ayala Malls Capitol Central Bacolod where students can utilize a space with internet access to study and collaborate with classmates.
Each student is also given a standard-issued pocket WIFI device, with a monthly load allowance, upon enrollment to be used for their schoolwork. If a student doesn’t have a computer, MMDC also has a Lease-to-own laptop program that they can use for school work.
One of MMDC’s most innovative initiatives is the Step Up sa Pangarap movement which they have launched together with their partners, IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP), IMMAP (Internet & Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines), McDonald’s, Microsoft, Concentrix, Genpact, Globe Business, and WhenInManila.com.The movement is designed to inspire and empower working students all over the country and will be highlighted by a 3-Day Virtual Summit happening on May 10 to 12, 2023. This Virtual Summit will feature a stellar lineup of speakers, including industry leaders and former working students who found success in their respective careers. Each day will feature different tracks: Step Up sa Career, Step Up sa Buhay, and Step Up sa Pera, and will discuss how working students can succeed in these areas. Register for free.
MMDC and Step up sa Pangarap is a movement for working students in the country. It inspires more people to get a degree and be more competitive in the workforce.
Working Students show amazing determination and MMDC is with them every step of the way.
