Mapúa University unveils new business programs, welcomes new Dean

Mapúa’s business school now offers degrees in Business Intelligence and Analytics, and Financial Technology. Both courses are aligned with the digital technologies and data that have become integral to critical business decisions.”  

The world has become more connected and highly competitive in the digital age. Filipino students need quality higher education that offers a more globalized outlook, equipping them to compete on the world stage. Mapúa University steps up to the plate via its groundbreaking collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU), ranked no.1 in the U.S. for innovation for eight consecutive years by U.S. News and World Report. This created an opportunity for Mapúa to expand its business program offerings under its E.T. Yuchengco School of Business (ETYSB). To push this refreshed approach to a global-view education, Mapúa appointed Dr. Jagdeep Jassel as the new Dean of Business for the university. 

Dr. Jag, as he is best known, brings years of experience leading in the growth of organizations from across industries — from manufacturing and hospitality to education. He is one with Mapua’s vision to provide quality and relevant education to its students by not only teaching theory but also bringing real-world applications into the classroom.  

As the Dean of Business faculty at his former university, Dr. Jag was responsible for driving excellence and improving students’ outcomes. He hopes to apply this expertise in Mapúa and to the business school. “In the Philippines, the landscape is ripe for business to grow,” he said. “We have a university with 100 years of better pedagogical experience that we can leverage. It is a thoughtful decision and the right time to enter the business space, especially with our collaboration with ASU.”  

Using the partnership as a kick-off point, the ETYSB is introducing pillar business programs that are suited to the needs of the rapidly shifting business landscape. The school already offers Business Administration and Accountancy as its core, focusing on building a successful enterprise – Operation Management, Marketing Management, and Financial Management. They expand this via courses to strengthen students’ skills in navigating data-driven businesses.
