Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, operating under Fast Autoworld Corporation’s franchise, has strengthened its ties with Bukidnon State University (BukSU) through a school tie-up program.

Key officials from Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, including Mr. Noel M. Kaindoy, the General Manager for Service and Parts, Ms. Trixie L. Bandala, the Human Resource Manager, and Engr. Jessie James W. Arcajo, the sales manager, visited BukSU’s Automotive Technology Department to enhance and strengthen the partnership.

The partnership goes beyond transactions, focusing on fostering meaningful relationships and long-term benefits through internships, workshops, and educational seminars. Mitsubishi Motors Philippines aims to equip students and faculty with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the automotive sector.

Upon the visitation with the key officials from Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, a meeting was held with the department head of the Automotive Technology department, spearheaded by Dr. Rene M. Chavez, the College of Technology (COT) dean, Dr. Marilou O. Espina, and Vice President for Administration and Finance, Mr. Dante S. Victoria Jr. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss student deployment in their company and their suggestion to increase OJT hours from 800 to 1,600 hours, respectively. The dean

of COT took note of and considered the suggestion from the industry partner to enhance the mutual partnership between Bukidnon State University and Mitsubishi Motors Philippines.

During the visit, Mr. Kaindoy stated that “education plays a vital role in shaping the future of our industry. By forging alliances with educational institutions, we not only provide students with invaluable exposure to real-world challenges but also identify potential talents who can contribute to the growth and innovation of our company.” 

Moreover, Ms. Bandala echoed these sentiments, highlighting the significance of collaborative efforts in driving socio-economic progress. “Our partnership with schools is not merely transactional; it’s about fostering meaningful relationships that yield long-term benefits for both parties. Through internships, workshops, and educational seminars, we aim to equip students and faculty with new technology vehicles and the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the automotive sector,” she remarked.

And finally, Engr. Arcajo, representing the Cagayan de Oro branch, emphasized the role of after-sales services in enhancing customer experience and brand loyalty. “Our engagement with schools extends beyond academic pursuits. We actively involve students in our aftersales operations, providing them with hands-on training and insights into customer service excellence,” he explained.

This program aligns with Mitsubishi Motors Philippines’ broader corporate social responsibility and sustainable development goals by investing in education and skills development. The collaboration promises to create lasting impacts by nurturing the next generation of automotive leaders and innovators while driving progress through knowledge and innovation.
