Featured batch: MSC Computer Training Center first batch – class of 1993

The first batch of two year course students of MSC was initially composed of fifty (50) students for the Office Management Course (OMC) and twenty-six (26) Computer Technology Course (CTC) students.

During the first semester of school year 1991-92, classes were held at the second floor of the Monte de Piedad Savings Bank along A. Flores St.  By the second semester of that school year MSC has transferred to its new site at M. Paulino St. and this became the students second home for the rest of their stay at MSC.

The OMC class, due to its size had to be divided into two sections, the morning session and the afternoon session.  This did not prevent the group from being friends with everyone, regardless of their section and the course they were taking up.  Since they spend more time in the school they got to know students from the short term courses too.

Out of the 76 students who started with the batch, only 43 were able to finish the course.


Nieves Arguelles was the awardee for computer operations and Reynald “Jong” Vinluan was the awardee for computer programming.  Awards for loyalty were given to students who enrolled in at least one short-term course and went on to finish the two-year course. They were: Mary Jane Lat, Athena Amor Ramos, Aileen Rosales, Eugenia Vasquez, Ronald Aquino, Allan Panganiban, and Balthadeus Santiago.

Featured Batch: MSC 3-year Office Management Course Class 1994-95 (first batch)

When MSC started offering computer classes, the first courses were short-term courses on computer operation and programming.  In the first semester of school year 1991-1992, two-year courses on Computer Technology and Office Management were offered to the growing number of MSC students.  Then in school year 1994-95, MSC offered the three-year courses on Computer Technology and Office Management.

Six fresh graduates of the two-year Office Management course enrolled in the new 3-year course.  These were:  Claire Ticzon, Aileen Metica, Aileen Tanodra, Jocelyn Maranan, Lina Jader, Raquel Dioyo, and Letty Changco.
