One hundred and ninety nine years since Escuela Nautica De Manila first opened its doors, we continue to be the leading breeding ground of the most sought after mariners in the country.  It is this position in the industry that many have tried to outdo, if not to come at par with. Having endured countless challenges throughout the times, the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy remains steadfast in its commitment to the Filipino people and to the world. PMMA endeavors to partner with as many offices and entities as possible, and taking the lead in developing the advancement of maritime education and training.The dawn of the new era of internationalization of higher education is right before our eyes. The glaring challenges are becoming more and more overwhelming by the minute. But we are confident that with our partnership with the Commission on Higher Education, we can address the core competencies of faculty and staff to meet the demands of developing the future global maritime leaders. We are also poised to strengthen research capabilities for future growth and development. The PMMA is also fortunate to be an attached agency of the Department of Transportation. With the support of the Department, our stakeholders are assured of a dynamic approach in leading the development of global maritime leaders through innovation, synergies and excellence.

Accordingly, our students shape the future of the maritime industry. The stature that we have sustained over the years proved our place as a pillar of education.
