Superintendent's Corner

The Philippine Merchant Marine Academy celebrated her 200th year anniversary last 2020. Since the days of Escuela Nautica de Manila the Institution has made it its mission to establish a tradition of excellence, a long line of noteworthy achievements that cemented The Philippines’ role in the Global Maritime field. Maybe it was fate that it was during that same year that we faced the Global Pandemic. It has brought to the forefront the importance of the people in the Maritime Industry as key workers, the very lifeblood of the global economy. 2021 will be not different as we continue to face whatever challenges we may face.
As with the resilient response of the Maritime Industry to the pandemic, the PMMA did not and will not falter in fulfilling its mandate in producing well trained Merchant Marine Officers as well as contributing to Nation Building and being well involved in Global Maritime concerns.
