Yuchengco-Ayala Education Partnership Introduces Breakthrough Experiential Global Education with Top US University

iPeople & Mapua execs introduced in a presscon the various breakthrough programs resulting from the collaboration of Mapua University with Arizona State University, who has been ranked as America’s Most Innovative University over the last 8 years. (From L-R): Dr. Dodjie Maestrecampo (President & CEO, Mapúa Malayan Colleges Laguna and Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao), Engr. Anthony Hilmer S. Medrano (EVP & COO, Mapúa Malayan Colleges Laguna), Dr. Bonifacio T. Doma Jr. (EVP for International Alliance & Cintana Partnership Executive Director), Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea (President, Mapúa University & Chairman, iPeople), Alfredo Ayala (President, iPeople), Lorenzo V. Tan (President & CEO, House of Investments, Inc. of the Yuchengco Group of Companies), Gemma O. Cheng (Vice President & CFO of iPeople), and Justin Fabia (Country Manager for Philippines, Cintana Education).

iPeople, the publicly listed Yuchengco-Ayala education partnership, introduced today a first of its kind offering that enables Filipino students to immerse themselves in global educational experiences with top international universities and a top Philippine university, in a highly cost-effective manner. 

Last year, iPeople school Mapua University and its daughter schools Mapua Malayan Colleges Laguna and Mapua Malayan Colleges Mindanao, entered into a collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU), which has been ranked America’s most innovative university, ahead of Stanford and MIT, over the past 8 years. 

The collaboration is focused on Business and Health Sciences programs.  In the latest US News & World Report online program rankings, ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business ranked Top 10 in the US across 8 programs and disciplines, including the #1 spot for online bachelor’s in business programs, and ASU’s online bachelor’s program in psychology was ranked #4. 

Through this collaboration, the Mapua schools also became members of the ASU-Cintana Alliance, a global network of 15 of the most innovative higher education institutions in the Americas, Europe and Asia.   

“We are delighted to be collaborating with the Mapua schools, whom we selected as our Philippine champions, because of their long-standing reputation for innovation and academic excellence.  The recent ranking of Mapua as one of the top 4 Philippine universities, together with UP, Ateneo and LaSalle, in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, is clear evidence of the quality of a Mapuan education.” ~Chris Hill, Chief Strategy Officer, and Head of Asia Pacific at Cintana

At a press conference held in Mapua’s brand new Makati campus, the most modern in the NCR, the collaborating schools introduced several ground-breaking offerings.  

“We have long been focused on delivering the hallmarks of a Mapuan education: international, digitally enhanced, outcomes-based and research-driven. Our collaboration with global leader ASU and being part of the ASU-Cintana Alliance enable us to take these to a higher level for our students, by giving them numerous opportunities to learn with a top ranked US university, and other leading education institutions around the world.” ~Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea, President of Mapua University and Chairman of iPeople

During their time at the Mapua schools, students now have the opportunity to be immersed in international learning experiences in numerous ways. Firstly, they have access to ASU’s world-class content in all their ASU-enhanced courses. Secondly, students are able to participate in Global Signature Courses through state-of-the-art virtual Global Classrooms, which give them the opportunity to learn remotely from professors at member universities of the ASU-Cintana Alliance, and interact with classmates from around the world, without leaving the Philippines. 

“YGC has long prioritized education as one of our contributions to nation building. It is very timely that our Mapua schools are launching this very innovative and global initiative as we celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of our past Chairman, Ambassador Alfonso T. Yuchengco, who had always advocated for making quality education more affordable for Filipinos and had forged many successful partnerships with industry leaders from around the world." ~Lorenzo V. Tan, the CEO of House of Investments, the listed holding company of YGC (Yuchengco Group of Companies), and the majority shareholder of iPeople said

“This initiative will allow young people access to education that, while Philippine centered, is also global in quality and in reach. We want to help develop a generation of truly global Filipinos, because our country deserves the best the world has to offer.” ~Cezar P. Consing, the CEO of Ayala Corporation

Students can also participate in classes co-lectured by ASU faculty in the US. Lastly, students will have many opportunities to participate in dozens of student exchange and summer immersion programs at ASU-Cintana Alliance schools.

The Shape of Power: OnePlus Unveils its Latest Flagship Smartphone to the Philippines, the OnePlus 11 5G

OnePlus Philippines officially launches the all new powerful OnePlus 11 5G, giving Filipinos unprecedented access to flagship level technology. The latest in a line of smartphones deemed as “Flagship Killers,” it was unveiled in a one-of-a-kind symphony of power concert to highlight the combination of modern elegance and innovation in one device. 

Featuring legendary local rock band Urbandub alongside the Manila Symphony Orchestra, the OnePlus 11 5G launch featured a powerful setlist of hits like A New Tattoo  and First of Summer reimagined with a classical twist. Showcasing the Shape of Power through the fusion of the two genres, alongside the OnePlus 11 5G’s breakthrough technology, futuristic design and Hasselblad imaging, the rock symphony was a testament to the brand’s Never Settle mantra, which powers each device to push further than ever before. Also present at the event were OnePlus ambassadors renowned portrait photographer Cyrus Panganiban, Filipino Olympic pole-vaulter and two-time SEA Games gold medalist EJ Obiena, and SEA Games gold medalist and Gilas Women player Trina Guytingco.  

“At OnePlus, we believe in the Never Settle mindset as we deliver high-quality, high-performance, user-centric tech. We are proud to once again unveil a next generation Flagship Killer, designed to bring the Shape of Power into your hands. The OnePlus community in the Philippines has kept growing and growing, so we are excited to finally introduce the OnePlus 11 5G to our Filipino audience through this unique performance that also pushes the boundaries of genre.” ~Mara Villaflor, OnePlus Philippines’ Brand Manager

Following the main camera are the 115° 48MP ultra-wide camera and IMX709 32MP telephoto lens which allows users to snap and produce DSLR-level quality shots.
Features like Hasselblad Portrait Mode helps users to easily shoot images with almost DSLR-like depth-tracking, natural bokeh, and light flare effects. Benchmarked against exacting Hasselblad optical standards to achieve portraits in perfection, the result simulates stunning professional portraits captured by an actual Hasselblad camera fitted with XCD 30mm and 65mm lenses.

Powerful yet Elegant Design
The OnePlus 11 5G adopts a bold, loud, confident, and shiny "modern elegance" design. Continuing the philosophy around the OnePlus 10 Pro, the OnePlus 11 5G has a K-shape curve along the camera decor which makes the module more vivid with the flow of light. Available in two colors, the calm Titan Black is meant to portray the black hole in the universe, while the rousing Eternal Green is inspired by the shades of the rainforest at dusk.
By utilizing the Matte Frosted Glass, the Titan Black version delivers an irresistibly smooth, soft but sturdy hand-held feeling.

“We will continue to innovate our joint offerings with WalterMart while being steadfast in our mission-first approach of strengthening those institutional market linkages for our smallholder growers and producers. Agriculture is a foundational and priority sector for the country, and we are optimistic that with the ecosystem of partners we developed over the years, MAYANI can drive more value for shoppers while creating positive social good across our agri-value chain.” ~Robert Esquillo, Partnerships Manager of MAYANI

Emirates launches humanitarian airbridge to transport emergency aid to victims of the Turkey-Syria earthquake
