Student Testimonial

Nikki Philipson R. Co

GMA Network Actor

I was once a student of DLSU-Manila who took BS Computer Science in Network Engineering for three years before deciding to stop and focus on my career.

I took up Online Blended Learning, majoring in Business Management (HND) in SISFU because I want to juggle my work with my studies. I work as an actor in GMA Network and the schedule is unpredictable, so going to an online school is the best way to manage my time.If you plan to take up OBL or are already taking it, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself of your ultimate goal. Mine was to learn and fulfill my promise to graduate. That pushed me every single time I was not feeling like doing my assignments. I already finished my HND in SISFU and am pursuing my Top-Up year at Arden University majoring in Finance. Everything is still pretty much online, so I have to keep myself motivated. May God bless you and keep motivated!
