COMPANY PROFILE

Jos Rizal University (JRU) prides itself for being among the most inexpensive private
universities in the country that offers quality education. It is a non-stock, non-profit, nonsectarian private educational institution founded in 1919 by Don Vicente Fabella based on the
ideal of good education available to all.
It has since blazed a trail in commercial education and continued to break new ground in various
fields by combining advancements in teaching methodology and information technology to
provide students with basic tools that will prepare and equip them to succeed in todays rapidly
changing technological world as well as develop their personal and intellectual qualities.

JRU has established strong ties with universities both here and abroad to facilitate on-going
cultural exchange and faculty dialogue and collaborations. Partnerships with major industry
players for curriculum development ensure that students are exposed to the standards and
demands of industry.

To this day, the University continues to build on its foundation of academic excellence through a
roster of top notch faculty, superior facilities, and well-planned programs in various disciplines
that have received numerous accreditations. As a testament to its commitment and contribution to
the promotion of quality education, JRU has recently been granted Autonomous Status by the
Commission on Higher Education (Resolution No. 013-2009 dated October 6, 2009). Only two
percent of the academic institutions in the country have accomplished this and 15 come from the
National Capital Region. In addition, the University has also maintained its deregulated status
since 2001, a distinction only 50 universities in the Philippines have achieved.

Our Vision
Jos Rizal University aims to develop its students to become useful and responsible citizens
through the effective transfer of relevant knowledge and desired values
1. by providing balance instruction in general education and technical knowledge;
2. by stressing the principles of representative government in a free society;
3. by inculcating respect for the truth;
4. by teaching the art of the utilization of knowledge; and
5. by encouraging active participation in the process of national development.

Our Mission
"You (the students) are the battlefield on which future wars will be won or lost...you cannot
remain neutral... you will have to take a stand. But keep in mind the principles you have imbibed
in the university; keep your faith, and your faith will keep you!" President Ramon Magsaysay

1. An education with a seal of quality rarely found elsewhere.
Jos Rizal University is in the coveted Philippine Government (CHED) List of Autonomous and
Deregulated colleges and universities of the land, an honor given to only 4% of the nation's
1,282 colleges and universities. This is currently among, if not the highest seal of quality given to
universities in the Philippines. Key to this honor is Level III ( LACOMED ) accreditation. Very
few institutions have this seal of excellence and distinction.

2. An education that is affordable.


We pride ourselves in providing quality education that is affordable, because we believe that a
good liberal education should be available to all. We know we do this better than any other
universities in the Philippines. For the past decade, our elementary school and high school fees
have consistently ranked at the lowest 10% of all private schools in Metro Manila. While our
collegiate and professional school fees have consistently ranked at the lowest 20% of all private
universities and colleges in Metro Manila. You will not find a better investment in education than
in Jos Rizal University.
3. You will enjoy the journey.
At Jos Rizal University, we like to talk about the "JRU Community", because we believe
learning works best where students and teachers interact in the open and challenging
environment, what we call the learning journey. JRU is a friendly place. Fitting in is easy. Top
faculty and great facilities ensure that critical thinking and mental growth never cease. A wide
range of student organizations and activities ensure that the student's potential grows outside the
classroom as well. The JRU campus is an ecology-friendly habitat in the heart of Metro Manila,
an oasis of learning. We can think of no better place to enjoy your child's journey.
