The Polytechnic University of the Philippines Graduate School awards most professional and research master's degrees and doctoral degrees in various disciplines for the university. The school houses more than 1,300 students, making it one of the largest graduate schools in the Philippines. The School does not confer PhD degrees, instead awards professional doctorates including DEM, DBA, and DPA. The School is located at Marcelo del Pilar sub-campus in Santa Mesa, Manila, in front of Eulogio "Amang" Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology.
There are nineteen (19) degree programs conferred by the PUP Graduate School.
The Faculty of Graduate Studies was established in 1970 under the administration of Dr. Nemesio Prudente by virtue of Republic Act 6089 in 1970 authorizing Philippine College of Commerce (predecessor of PUP) to expand its course offerings. In 1971, classes in Master in Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Arts in Business Education (MABE) officially started. The Master of Arts in Business Education, the only one in the country, aimed “to develop in the students a broader and deeper grasp and perception of the basic traditions, values, and trends.”
In 1972, when Martial Law was declared, the PCC, including the Faculty of Graduate Studies, was temporarily closed. PCC reopened in November 1972
In 1976, two curricula were added: (1) Master in Public Administration and (2) Teacher Certificate Program for Business and Distributive Arts, a non-degree program to meet instantaneous national needs for supportive high school teachers as a result of a revision in the secondary curriculum. The latter program received an endorsement from the Department of Education and a financial assistance from The Asia Foundation for three years.
In May 1977, the Certificate Program in Cooperatives, another non-degree program, was started under a consortium agreement between the Philippine College of Commerce and the Order of St. Agustin Cooperative Education Center.
On April 1, 1978, PCC was converted to a full-fledged university status and was named Polytechnic University of the Philippines. The Graduate School set its aims to perk up students’ competence as scholars, scientists, managers, and professionals by enhancing leadership qualities, decision-making ability, analytic ability, and professional approach.
In 1979, Master in Applied Statistics was offered in consortium with the National Census and Statistics Office. This is an off-campus program that continues up to the present.
Two degree programs were, likewise, approved: (1) Master in Public Administration for government leaders who distinguished themselves in public service and (2) Master in Public and Business Administration.
In 1981, Master in Accountancy was launched to give non-accountants the opportunity to develop competencies and leadership qualities for professional careers in accountancy.
In 1987, master’s and doctorate programs in Educational Management were offered to meet the national need for educational administrators steeped in management competencies.
In 1989, the Graduate School was transferred from the old building on Sergio H. Loyola Street to the newly refurbished building beside the Hasmin Hostel on Santa Mesa, Manila.
The Master in Mass Communication Program was offered in 1990. The program, which was originally designed as a traditional degree program, later, offered both traditional and non-traditional programs. In 1991, Master of Arts in Language Teaching was offered to investigate and appraise recent approaches in English teaching and to provide opportunities in designing and assessing the efficiency of on-campus activities.
