The UE-MDC is an organic unit, directly under the Office of the Chairman and CEO, which acts as the training center of the University. It is tasked primarily to initiate, develop and pursue needed training programs that will enhance the quality of services of the University–be it academic or administrative. The Center will not limit its services within the confines of the University's constituents. As conceptualized, the UE-MDC will provide high-quality development training for global competitiveness.
The Center will be the umbrella organization that will offer, as its priorities, specialized courses in applied information technology, corporate governance, banking and finance, and continuing professional education–in collaboration with the proper organic units of the University and without prejudice to the hiring of qualified, outside trainers when needed. As its expertise and facilities become competitive with well-established and reputable manpower training centers, the UE-MDC will extend its services to companies and establishments, particularly those which share special links with the University (such as the UE Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center).
