STI Education Services Group, Inc. (STI ESG) inaugurated its newest academic center STI College Pasay-EDSA, a prime hub of world-class education, located at P. Celle corner EDSA, Pasay City on February 26, 2020.
The nine-storey academic center is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities with simulation laboratories for hands-on learning, air-conditioned classrooms with flat screen TVs, a basketball court, multimedia centers, and student activity areas with internet connection among others.
In partnership with the OSM Maritime Group, one of the biggest crew companies in the world, the new campus will also house the Arendal Center for Maritime Career Advancement, a world-class facility envisioned to train aspiring hospitality and culinary professionals with its bachelor’s degree programs, specialized modular courses, and basic marine and hospitality training.
"We are always on the lookout for emerging technology and careers. To offer the best training for our students, we look for where those expertise are located and then we partner with them. STI Academic Center Pasay-EDSA is special not only because it’s another feather to STI’s cap and a testament to how we continue to grow in our expansion, but it is also where we will be housing a finishing school in partnership with the Norwegian shipping company, OSM. Through our combined efforts, we will be able to develop competent and skilled graduates ready for employment in cargo and cruise vessels."
