Mapúa Malayan Colleges Laguna (Mapúa MCL) remains steadfast in its mission to provide the students with a learning environment that would transform them into globally competitive professionals. In unwavering pursuit of its global goals, Mapúa MCL continuously forges connections and collaborations with higher education institutions (HEIs) across the globe. The Office for External Relations and Global Linkages (OERGL) and the Office for Strategic Partnerships and Global Engagement (OSPGE) play a central role in advancing this commitment, diligently cultivating partnerships with institutions worldwide.



Representatives from OERGL and OSPGE participated in the Global Partners Day hosted by Sunway University in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on November 10, 2023. Sunway University is a renowned Malaysian private university committed to providing quality education and conducting research that addresses pressing global issues. Through the Cintana Alliance, a global network of universities that are committed to provide high-quality and accessible education to students around the world, the partnership between Mapua MCL and Sunway University can empower both institutions to achieve their academic objectives, prepare students for a world interconnected by globalization, and contribute to tackling global challenges.

The Global Partners Day served as a platform for academic institutions to exchange best practices across regions and diverse fields of study. This event presented Mapúa MCL with a valuable opportunity to establish connections with potential partners from around the globe. The gathering brought together representatives from HEIs to engage in discussions aimed at strengthening academic and research collaborations.



Mapúa MCL effectively utilized this platform to connect with potential partners from Malaysia, Australia, Canada, China, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. These connections could lead to future collaborations in areas such as student exchange programs, joint research projects, and faculty development initiatives. Mapúa MCL also seized the opportunity to learn from other institutions at the Global Partners Day. Through the exchange of ideas and best practices, Mapúa MCL can continuously improve its own international engagement efforts.



Overall, Mapúa MCL’s participation in the Global Partners Day was a success. The event not only helped to strengthen the school’s international networks but also provided a platform to share best practices and learn from others. These efforts are consistent with Mapúa MCL’s vision of becoming a globally recognized leader in professional education and research, empowering its students and faculty members to engage actively and effectively in the ever-evolving global higher education landscape.
