The Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines-Command and General Staff College (AFPCGSC) marked the 10th year of their educational partnership through a signing ceremony between Dr. Lizan E. Perante-Calina, dean of the DAP Graduate School of Public and Development Management and Col. Augusto V. Gaite PAF (GSC), CGSC Commandant last July 15 at the AFPCGSC, Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.
This decade of strong collaboration between the two institutions stemmed from the creation of the Master in Public Management major in Development Security (MPM-DevSec) under the leadership of the two prestigious institutions.
This program has produced 12 batches with a total of 1,339 graduates. Currently, there are two ongoing batches, Batches 13 and 14, being implemented in Camp Aguinaldo and in Fort Bonifacio, respectively. – Iris Micah Eleria
