AMA International University – Bahrain is a member of the AMA Education System (AMAES) based in the Philippines.
AMAES traces its roots in 1980 when Ambassador Amable R. Aguiluz V founded the Amable M. Aguiluz Institute of Computer Studies (AMAICS) with the
vision of providing quality yet affordable education to the youth. From a mere provider of short term courses, AMAICS shortly offered Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Program and became the Philippines’ first institution of learning to offer a comprehensive curriculum for the
country's future computer scientists.
Since then, AMAICS, has grown to become AMA Education System that offers diverse academic programs under its various institutions that include
AMA Computer University and Colleges, AMA Computer Learning Center, AMA International Institute of Technology, ABE International Business
College, Saint Augustine International School, Norwegian Maritime Academy, Saint Augustine School of Nursing, AMA School Of Medicine and AMA
School of Nursing.
AMAES has evolved into an empire of IT institutions with over 200 branches in the Philippines. In 1999, it was awarded with the prestigious ISO
9001 Certification --- a testimony to its world-class stature. To reaffirm this, AMA Computer College was granted the university status by the
Commission on Higher Education of the Republic of the Philippines on August 20, 2001.
AMA Education System gains strong ground in other parts of the globe with the same sense of commitment for excellence and quality.
