Mission &

UBLA® (pronounced U. B. L. A. )  is a registered nonprofit, nonsectarian, independent educational establishment in the Philippines, managed by a registered elected Board of Trustees and accredited currently by the Philippine Government through its agency, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), to run its pilot programs.

Right now, UBLA has no direct meaning, but in the future when we are deserving of the university title, it will mean University Business La Union.

It will evolve fast to offer undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses accredited by the  Commission on Higher Education (CHED) of the Philippine Government.
