Bachelor of Multimedia Arts Program Launch by Enderun
Pasig City, Philippines — Who said arts won’t make you rich? The idea that people compare job courses is mind-boggling; all jobs are done by doing what you want to do, and that doesn’t make any difference with people pursuing arts for a job!

What makes this program different from any program like it is that Enderun focuses on students who will not only be equipped with the knowledge they need in the creative aspect but also in the field of how they will use that knowledge money-wise.
