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.

Aside from the regular academic classes, these ladies underwent extensive training in the different offices of MSC.  Eventually, most were absorbed by the different departments and a few worked in the different MSC companies.

Claire and Aileen Metica became computer teachers in MSC partner schools, and later they were hired as MSC instructors.

Lina and Letty worked at MSC Data Exchange – MSC’s one-stop computer shop

Raquel Dioyo worked as Cashier at MSC.

Aileen Tanodra worked at Escuela de Valle Verde as teacher.

Jocelyn worked at the Hall of Justice of San Pablo City.

Where are they today?

  • Claire teaches at Canossa College, San Pablo and is married to an MSC alumnus, Owen Ignacio
  • Aileen Metica works and lives in Canada.
  • Letty, after working for MSC Data Exchange Co. as Graphic Artist for several years, now lives in Abu Dhabi and works as Finance and Administration Officer at Silec Cable
  • Aileen Tanodra lives and works in Singapore.
  • Jocelyn lives in San Pablo City and still works at the Hall of Justice
  • Lina, after many years with MSC Data Exchange Co., has her own business now.
  • Raquel is now a full-time wife and mother.

How MSC Helped Me Find The Right Career

My life at VYP-MSC  Institute of Technology is something that I will always be proud of, and look back to. Its good people and the friendly learning experience helped me find out more about my abilities and interests. Thanks to the decision I made to take Office Management Course at MSC. My certificate has certainly served as my passport to my career.

In my entire career, I never saw myself working in stressful business environments till I made my very hard decision of leaving the country eight years ago, armed with the dream of finding greener pasture. My new start abroad wasn’t very disappointing as I found a job after a month in a huge oil and gas organization. Carrying my valid MSC certificate, good computer skills, knowledge and good training plus my faith in God, I was given the chance to work as a Project Secretary in the offshore project team. That was the first entry-level job I had which was not easy for me in the beginning – working with a multi-cultural team.

Like any other Filipino worker, I experienced discrimination, being the only Filipino and female member in the project team. However, with each passing day, I felt it funny that people started coming to me for help. It was undeniably my computer skills and not-so-bad English skills that have helped me to survive and gain respect from my co-workers.

The secretarial course is in high demand in every business settings. It is a course which must be encouraged. I found job stability with this career and indeed opened for me other career options. My good accounting training at MSC led me to my present job, responsible for administrative and accounting functions.

I can say every school will give a piece of paper that would help one to acquire knowledge and skills, but very few can actually give you both, to be successful in your chosen field. This I can say: “I have found both at MSC”.

My MSC experience was indeed incredible and helped me find the right career.

MSC Graduates – Sertipikadong Pinoy – Angat sa Mundo!

Sertipikadong Pinoy - Angat sa Mundo!

Ano ang MSC Advantage?

Ang “MSC Advantage” ay ang kaibahan o kalamangan ng mga mag-aaral at ng mga nagsipagtapos sa MSC kaysa sa mga nagsipagtapos sa ibang paaralan.

Una sa mga ito ay ang ekstensibong pagsasanay sa “computers.” Mas mahaba ang oras na ginugugol sa paggamit at pag-aaral ng kompyuter kaya nagiging mahuhusay ang mga mag-aaral dito.

Katuwang ng ekstensibong pagsasanay ay ang mga gurong nagtuturo sa MSC.  Ang mga guro dito ay tunay na mga propesyonal sa asignaturang itunuturo nila kaya ang natututunan ng mga mag-aaral ay mga ginagamit at ginagawa sa aktwal na buhay. 

Ang guro sa “computer repair” ay tunay na nagkukumpuni ng kompyuter;  ang guro sa “programming” ay tunay na gumagawa ng “programs” ; at ang guro sa “bookkeeping”  ay tunay na “bookkeeper.”    

At ang mga guro sa MSC ay may mga kredensyal sa pagtuturo na naayon sa kwalipikasyon ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Pagdating naman sa pag-hahanap ng trabaho ay lamang pa rin ang galling sa MSC.    

Marami sa mga institusyon sa Lungsod ng San Pablo ang nakasanayan na ang pagkuha ng empleyado na nagtapos sa MSC.

Hindi lamang dahil sa kilala na ang MSC sa larangan ng kompyuter, kundi dahil din sa subok na nang mga kompanya dito ang galing ng mga nagsipagtapos sa MSC. 

Lamang pa rin ang MSC sa “National Certification” o NC, isang pagsusulit na ibinigay ng TESDA sa mga magsisipagtapos sa mga kursong teknikal.      

Sa taong ito, 86.4% ang nakapasa mula sa MSC.  Ito ay malaking kalamangan kumpara sa ibang “computer schools”  na halos walang pumasang mag-aaral.  

Mahalaga ang pagsusulit na ito dahil ito ang katumbas ng “board exam” sa ibang mga kurso.

Sa larangan naman ng “scholarship” ay may bagong paraan upang makapag-aral sa MSC nang kaunti lamang ang magagastos.Ito ay bukod pa sa ibang “scholarships” na iniaalok ng MSC sa kanila. 

Sa pamamagitan ng Barangay Scholarship Program ay ihahanap ng “sponsor” ang mga mag-aaral at ang halagang ibibigay ng “sponsor”  ay tutumbasan ng MSC.

What Our Graduates Say

What I learned from MSC was my shining armor when I applied for a job in Makati. My Internet Technology course introduced me not only to the latest technology but also to a problem-based and team-centered study approach. I have also experienced how to handle problems in the field of Desktop Publishing and Web Designing that gave me confidence in my current work.
