Universidad de Manila president Malou Tiquia today formally took over the reins of Manila City’s public local university, carrying the gargantuan task of “rebranding” the learning institution and making it at par with the country’s bests.
Tiquia brings to the UdM her 29 years of sterling record as an educator, skilled political management expert, and policy analyst.
Branded as a disruptor, or someone who can identify eye-invisible management and operational cracks and introducing game-changing solutions, university officials and students have heaped high hopes that crucial reforms will be initiated under Tiquia’s leadership.
Tiquia replaced Ernesto Maceda Jr. after Mayor Francisco “Isko” Domagoso took over the Manila City Hall in July this year.
Tiquia completed her AB Political Science degree from the University of the Philippines in 1985. She pursued her graduate studies in Public Administration from the same university in 1990 and finished her second graduate degree in Political Management in 2001 from the Graduate School of Political Management of the George Washington University.
