TEACHING PHILOSOPHY (TP)
Patterned after general education modules at US Ivy League universities, the curricula involve industry-specific courses that develop within students the intellectual breadth and technical experience required in today’s dynamic business environments. The general management education is similar to the training business school students would receive, involving industry theory and history, and on the practical sciences and humanities.
Enderun’s learning framework places great importance on the balance between theory and practice. Founded on that philosophy, students are taught concepts and theories, and are given further avenues on which to enrich their first-hand experiences. In the classroom, emphasis is placed on student-centered learning. With the belief that learners absorb information through all the senses, the teaching methodologies, shaped with a focus on students’ learning styles, require maximum involvement from students.
Students are also given opportunities for experiential-learning both in and out of the campus through laboratory modules, field trips, tours, and practical internships. This learning-by-doing approach strengthens academic perspectives, and contributes to their students’ personal insights when they return to the classroom. The Enderun bachelor’s degree programs are recognized by the Philippine Commission on Higher Education. We assert our position so as to become a recognized player in the decision-making process of the University.
