Southeast Asian University Consortium for Graduate Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC)

In line with UPLB's goal towards becoming a world class university, the UPLB Graduate School (GS), College of Economics and Management (CEM), and the Office of Institutional Linkages jointly held a symposium, entitled "Internationalization of Higher Education: A Symposium" on 23 January 2013 at the CEM-ICOPED Auditorium. 

The said symposium aimed to provide insights on internationalization of business education in the Philippines and of higher education in Singapore. 

The symposium featured presentations of two esteemed faculty members from two distinguished universities - Prof. Jeanette Angeline B. Madamba, assistant professor at the Department of Agribusiness Management and Entrepreneurship, CEM, UPLB and Dr. Teofilo C. Daquila, associate professor of Southeast Asian Economics and deputy head of the Department of Southeast Asian Studies, from the National University of Singapore (NUS). 

Prof. Madamba discussed her paper entitled "Internationalization of Business Education in the Philippines: Status, Challenges, and Directions." She presented current issues on internationalization of business education in higher education in the Philippines as well as key points to address these challenges. 

Dr. Daquila, on the other hand, talked about the "Internationalization of Higher Education in Singapore." He shared how Singapore responds to changes in the global market and the NUS’ strategies to internationalization. 

Prior to the symposium, Dr. Daquila presented the Graduate Studies program in Singapore, to invite the UPLB constituents to study at the NUS. Currently, UPLB has a Memorandum of Agreement with the NUS.
