• AMA University achieves another milestone for being the first school in the Philippines to offer full online degree courses

    In June 2015, AMA University, the first and largest IT University in Asia, achieved another milestone not only in IT education, but in Tertiary education in the Philippines as a whole, when it finally launched its newest program, AMA Online Education (AMA OEd), the first full online education program in the Philippines that offers degree courses and short certification courses that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

    AMA OEd was established through the efforts of the Global Education Services team of AMA Education System (AMAES), which is led by none other than Dr. Amable C. Aguiluz IX, the Vice Chairman of AMAES, son of Dr. Amable R. Aguiluz V, the chairman of AMAES. The idea started with the objective to solve several issues that urge some people to give up college education or no longer pursue college education even if they do have enough resources to finish their studies:

    1. Already working and do not have enough time or energy for schooling
    2. Lives too far from any college campus
    3. Always gets to class late because of the dreadful traffic situation especially in the cities
    4. Not capable of travelling too far
    5. Taking care of a sick housemate or relative
    6. Working abroad 

    Realizing that there is indeed a need for distance learning, AMAES then studied how college education can be delivered to people without them having to leave their home or office; hence AMA OEd was developed and eventually launched.

    All degree courses offered by AMA University through AMA OEd are accredited and approved by CHED, which makes it totally equivalent or no different to any degree course taken in a traditional or campus-based setup from a legitimate college institution.

    Today, AMA OEd has become one of the most in-demand programs of AMAES that caters to students from different age groups and profession - and even to students from different parts of the world, which are mostly OFW's.

    Unlike campus-based courses, AMA OEd welcomes new enrollees for their degree programs at anytime of the year and modules can be taken at your own pace - making it easier for you to learn and understand every lesson.
