The signing ceremony was held at the SEC Headquarters, 10th Floor, Makati Avenue, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
The SEC officials who were present included: Atty. Filbert Catalino F. Flores III, Director and Ms. Marjorie C. Dacilo, Officer-in-Charge, HRAD-LRID.

This agreement opens the opportunity for MLQU students to get first-hand experience including a vantaged perspective of the workings of the country’s top government regulatory commission charged with supervising the corporate sector, the capital market participants, and the securities and investment instruments market, and the protection of the investing public. This opportunity translates into added knowledge which cannot be gained in classroom lectures or by required reading.
