Mapúa University has been recognized by Cengage, a United States-based education and technology company, for its outstanding achievements in digital education. In a letter to Mapúa’s president, Dr. Dodjie S. Maestrecampo, Cengage commended the university for its forward-thinking approach and successful embrace of digital education. The letter highlighted Mapúa’s creation of 2,738 digital courses for the 2022-2023 academic year, with 31,153 student enrollments, demonstrating the effectiveness of the university’s digital education initiatives. Mapúa’s readiness for the digital age has been further acknowledged by Cengage, which has previously named the university as one of the most-digitally ready in 2020 and recognized it for having the highest digital course activation in the region in 2021.

The university has unveiled a new vision statement under Dr. Maestrecampo’s leadership, emphasizing its commitment to being a global leader in education that fosters sustainable socio-economic growth through innovation, digital transformation, and lifelong education. Cengage has applauded this commitment, citing Dr. Maestrecampo’s visionary leadership and Mapúa’s status as a trailblazer in digital education in the Philippines.

Mapúa’s digital education efforts began well before the pandemic, with initiatives such as “Digital Days” and “Digital Rush” implemented in 2017. These early innovations familiarized students and faculty with digital tools and platforms, contributing to the seamless transition to online learning during the pandemic and beyond. Additionally, Mapúa’s own platform for fully online programs, Mapúa ÚOx, has received global recognition, winning the Gold Award for Digital Readiness in the Wharton-QS Reimagine Education Awards 2022.

Dr. Edward Jay Quinto, director of Mapúa’s Center for Teaching and Learning—Outcomes-Based Education, emphasized that the university’s early implementation of digital education innovations has solidified its position as a leader in digital education.
