Filipinos put premium on education because they consider it as one of the means to ensure their future. Research shows that a huge chunk of Filipinos’ monthly household budget is spent on education.
Furthermore, AMA Education System is highly regarded in providing quality education at an affordable cost. Franchisees share the same legacy with AMAES as they become part of the development and fulfillment of the dreams of thousands of young Filipinos in their communities.
