The CARD-MRI Development Institute Inc. will be holding its graduation ceremony with the theme “CMDI Graduates: Pursuing Dreams and Fostering Resilience in the Face of Adversity” for its two campuses in Bay in Laguna and Tagum City in Davao del Norte on July 22 and July 26, 2022, respectively.

“We are very proud of our graduates for embracing the challenge of learning in the new normal. From face-to-face classes to abruptly adjusting to modular and blended learning, our students showed excellence and competence in their studies,” CMDI President Flordeliza L. Sarmiento explains.

From its Bay Campus, there is a total of 135 SHS and 198 college graduates for the Academic Year 2021-2022. Meanwhile, there is a total of 242 SHS and 138 college graduates for its Tagum Campus.

“CMDI has equipped our students with the right tools so we are confident that they can pursue their dreams after their graduation. It is our goal that they, too, will become contributors of positive change to their own communities,” said Sarmiento.

Being a member-institution of CARD Mutually Reinforcing Institutions, CMDI has a pool of experts and practitioners in the field of entrepreneurship, accountancy, technology, and other related fields. To further deepen the knowledge and skills of their learners, CMDI collaborated with CARD MRI Information Technology, Inc. and FDS ASYA Philippines Inc. for an internship program.

Senior Executive Vice President Dr. Edzel A. Ramos further explained that the challenge and opportunity of the new age pushes the academic institution to go beyond the norm, “Even as students, we know that they are already capable of adapting to the working environment. In preparation for their employment or entrepreneurship, we have established collaborations with other CARD MRI that will enable them to practice the theories they learned from our blended classroom.”

Meanwhile, aspiring accountants are also provided with opportunities for financial support for CPA Review. “We understand how challenging it must be for fresh graduates to pursue accountancy review right away. In order to support them, we have designed a program that will allow our graduates to pursue their dreams of becoming Certified Publica Accountants,” Ramos stated.

Another Academic Year opens

As the school year closes, another school year unfolds. Driven by its goal of contributing to poverty eradication through the provision of quality and affordable education, CMDI offers free tuition fee to all grade 10 completers from public high schools. This offer is for Senior High School tracks of Accounting and Business Management (ABM), Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and Home Economics (HE) for both campuses.

CMDI also has the lowest down payment for incoming college and non-QVR Senior High School students. For as low as PhP99, learners can be closer towards reaching a better future.

For college courses, CMDI offers BS Entrepreneurship specializing in Microfinance, BS Accountancy, BS Information System, BS Tourism for both campuses, and BS Accounting Information System, available in Bay Campus only. Technical-Vocational is also available in CMDI Bay Campus which is an accredited assessment center for Microfinance Technology for NC II Program.
