Choose Southwestern University PHINMA

As an innovative Philippine business institution, PHINMA believes that access to quality education is the solution to many of our country’s problems. While the enrollment rate in the Philippines has always been high, PHINMA discovered that most students do not finish tertiary education. Students were willing to learn but did not have the resources to stay in school.

That is why in 2004, PHINMA Education was established.

PHINMA Education is making education accessible in key growth areas all over the country. It has transformed existing educational institutions to provide better academic, operational, and community support for all of its students. Through its efforts more students are able to earn college degrees and become globally competitive professionals.

The PHINMA Education Holdings, Inc. is now composed of nine secondary and tertiary educational institutions spread throughout the country.
