Are you ready to be a Game Changer?
Buckle up as a top tech and design school from Makati just unveiled its campus at the heart of Cebu IT Park!
iACADEMY, a college in Makati established in 2002 expands in Cebu. They are known for their strong industry partnership that delivers 96% job placement rate and specialized programs such as Software Engineering, Game Development, Animation, and Multimedia Arts. During yesterday’s media huddle, we learned that they offer a different approach to education, one that is magnified and focused to the needs of the top industries today and make learning cool and fun.
“We’ve started the inevitable. To expand is the only way to bring non-traditional, specialized education closer to every aspiring tech and creative, and we couldn’t think of a better place for the first campus outside Makati but Cebu – it is rapidly progressing and we join them in their pursuit to make it the next tech and creative hub,” said Raquel Perez Wong, COO of iACADEMY.
“We have grown exponentially from the mere 1 floor in Ayala Ave building to the 11-floor iACADEMY Plaza building, and now to our very own iACADEMY Nexus Campus that houses 2,500 students or as what we call them, Game Changers. This is the kind of success that we intend to bring to Cebu,” she added.
iACADEMY Cebu is located at the 5th Floor of Filinvest Cebu Cyberzone Tower 2, Salinas Drive corner W. Geonzon St., Brgy. Apas, Cebu City. It currently has 4 classrooms, a multi-purpose hall, a Cintiq lab, MMA lab, a Green Room, and student lounge.
iACADEMY Cebu is targeting 200 enrollees as it starts to accept students next school year. It will initially be offering their top five courses for Cebu:
- Software Engineering
- Game Development
- Real Estate Management
- Multimedia Arts
“I am thrilled to share the programs that we have prepared for our Cebu campus and to be working with industry professionals who are willing to share their time and talent as professors to mold future Game Changers,” said Mitch Andaya, Vice President for Academic Affairs for Cebu Campus.
iACADEMY is known for its industry-aligned curriculum and professors who are rockstars in their own chosen fields. Some of their notable alumni are Mikey Sevilla, Joshua Villena, Emman Rinoza.
Their students are always engaged in projects that contribute solution and positive change – they developed the first physical distancing app called Maze, the Experience Philippines App of the Department of Tourism that has the Augmented Reality feature, OCDrone – a solar powered water waste collecting tool control simply with a mobile phone, to name a few.
