Ateneo de Manila University is a center for excellence and development, offering students the opportunity to the liberal arts, engineering, and business in the fast-growing capital of the Philippines, Metro Manila. The university’s community focus invites students to work on projects such as house builds and disaster relief, while gaining hands on experience in politics and economics. Ateneo de Manila also has a range of environmental initiatives and social groups that keep students involved in fun and interactive ways.

While staying involved on campus is easy, the city also provides students with a vibrant atmosphere emanating from the bustle of activities of a fast-growing economy against a cultural backdrop that spans the modern and traditional.

Academic Details:

The Ateneo education draws from the Jesuit tradition of justice, character formation, openness and discernment to provide a foundation for technical competence, leadership and a rich perspective on global human development. The 155-year history of the Ateneo is a rich cross-cultural narrative steeped in an Asian cultural heritage infused with colonial influences. (Source: Ateneo de Manila University “About” 2016)
