Emilio Aguinaldo College
General Luna Street and Taft Avenue, Paco, Manila
Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) is one of the newer institutions of higher learning in Manila. Established as Marian School of Midwifery in 1973, it progressed into a college comprised of 16 schools, with an excellent track record – a consistent top performing institution in Criminology and other equally competitive programs such as Dentistry.
Along the way it dropped its generic name for a renowned one – Emilio Aguinaldo, the primary figure in the Philippine Revolution and the president of the Revolutionary Government of the First Philippine Republic.
EAC established partnerships with neighboring The Pearl Manila Hotel and Medical Center Manila to provide actual training to its students with a related major. Aside from the hotel and the hospital, EAC has superior facilities for a campus that occupies a relatively small area. It’s sports facilities and cultural venues have actually held events in the local collegiate WNCAA and the regional 23rd Southeast Asian Games for Arnis and Wushu events.
A branch campus in Dasmariñas, Cavite was established by EAC around late 1970s. After years of operation this branch has been sold to De La Salle University and is now part of the DLSU System carrying the name De La Salle University – Dasmariñas.
