The University of the Philippines Diliman Extension Program in Olongapo (UPEDPO) was established in response to the Olongapo City government’s request for quality education. The Memorandum of Agreement between Olongapo City and UP was signed in 1984, thereby signaling the start of the program that year.
UPDEPO offers the Master of Management (MM) program with specializations in business management, educational management, and public management. The program aims to train qualified students for a professional career in the management of private and public enterprises. It primarily seeks to develop a manager’s special competence in his particular field of endeavor and the ability to relate his functional activities with top management objectives.
