One of a handful of modern compact colleges in Metro-Manila, NEW ENGLAND COLLEGE (NEC) was conceived and planned by a group of ambitious and determined investors in education sometime late 2003, headed by an outstanding M.A. Education Management graduate from the University of the Philippines and a young entrepreneur from Hong Kong. In response to the need for truly, globally competent graduates in the disciplines of health care, information and I.T., education and business administration to meet worldwide demands for professionals from these elds, Mrs. Norma Ong-Ching -- the U.P. alumnae & president of a chain of Early Achievers Learning Centers, together with Dr. Henry Wong -- co-founder of H&D Information Technology Incorporated, then decided to make a difference in career-oriented education.
NEC opened in the rst semester of 2005, a week after government permits were granted, offered the following Baccalaureate programs: Bachelor of Science in Nursing; Bachelor in Secondary Education major in English; Bachelor in Elementary Education – Special Education (SPED); B.S. in Information Technology; B.S. in Computer Science; B.S. in Business Administration major in Management; as well as: UK Diplomas in Tourism and Hospitality (CTH-Modular), Caregiver, English Pro ciency Program, Associate in Nursing (ASN), etc. The college is now on its way to greater heights in the delivery of world-class, globally competitive education.
