History of Mindanao Kokusai Daigaku
Mindanao Kokusai Daigaku is a tertiary institution of the Philippine Nikkei Jin Kai in Davao City, Philippines.
It started as a dream. In Davao City, the Japan Philippines Volunteer Association, Inc. (JPVA) is assisting the Filipinos who are Japanese descendants (Nikkeijin) as early as 1980. The first project was Japanese Language School and with it as a benchmark, the association trails its way to an environmental protection project, to a basic education institution, to community medical welfare activities, to educational and cultural exchanges then to a trainee’s dormitory. Then the pinnacle of all dreams emerged – the establishment of a welfare college.
MKD is established primarily to help the young Filipinos of the 21st century in the pursuit of academic excellence, in education and service to humanity alongside their goal of becoming globally competitive.
An academic community proficient in Japanese Language, multi-culturally sensitive, equipped with work ethics and global competencies.
To educate and mold individuals into productive and valuable citizens in the country and to be globally competitive, equipped with technologically advanced knowledge and skills to meet the demands of the dynamic society.
The MKD aims to:
1. Provide varied learning opportunities and activities in Japanese, English and Filipino language and other competencies;
2. Produce quality and relevant research outputs;
3. Promote social justice and peace through exposures to diverse cultures;
4. Adapt the culture of morality, civic consciousness and corporate social responsibility.
Insights from Student Interns…
As a student of Bachelor of Information System from Mindanao Kokusai Daigaku, I learned lately that information is now very easy to attain. In just a few seconds, each day, information is scattering everywhere with technology that is why I was very curious and determined to get this course. Though there will be challenges & struggles that will come along but if you are persistent enough to pursue & finish studies, in the end, the result would be fruitful.
This is also my opportunity to be an intern of this company that will help me gain more experience in preparation for my future career.
The word I love to hear is the dream I wanna achieve and it is “SUCCESS”.
