Naga City – Enrollment at the Mariners Polytechnic Colleges (MPC), this city has commenced with the regular and new and transferee-students flocking to the school for their choice subjects and time slots.

Degrees in Tourism, Hospitality and Business are in the forefront of courses offered by the institution which prompt the administration to beef-up its facilities and the capability of instructors to continue to assure quality education to students. One of the programs pursued by MPC-Naga is the ‘Work and Travel U.S.A.’ In this program, Hospitality and Tourism students go to the United States of America for their on-the-job-training in five-star hotels and distinguished restaurants.

This program affords them the experience of how it is to work in a foreign land and apply what they leaned in the school. The opportunity also gives them the chance to earn as they are paid in their work- stint with these institutions.

Another advantage is the fact that they can always come back to these hotels and restaurants after they have finished their college degree and continue the work they have started during their O.J.T.

The linkages with these establishments in America were started and are maintained by Mariners to help the students in their training and later on, as graduates for them to find jobs not only in the Philippines but abroad.
