I. Brief Description
The Ateneo School of Government (ASOG) is the public sector arm of the Ateneo de Manila University. The School’s long-term mission is to teach and work with effective and ethical public servants. It aims to contribute in building prosperous, sustainable, just, and happy communities in the Philippines, empowered by democratic, participatory, transparent, and accountable governance institutions and processes.
As a graduate school for leadership and public service, ASOG's academic and executive education programs bridge the gap between classroom wisdom and real-world policy decision-making and governance. Through its research and extension programs, and its work with public, private, and community organizations, ASOG continues to develop and foster innovative ideas and approaches in areas such as leadership, poverty eradication, climate change, social accountability, and politics.
The Executive Education Program was created to foster a cooperation between the private and public sector for national development goals. The program promotes leadership and governance through modules that orient public officials and politicians in the fundamental elements of leadership.
Executive Education Programs continue to uphold the Ateneo tradition in academic excellence in relation to providing Christ-like services for others. It also offers short and focused training programs that help provide methods and strategies to concretize ethical governance and sustainable development.
The program trains political leaders, civil servants and corporate managers to conceptualize, develop, and manage programs relevant and responsive to the social, economic and political needs of Filipinos. Significantly, the program offers a 'leadership sanctuary', where reform-oriented and value-driven public officials can meet, support and sustain one another.
