CEO's Welcome

Welcome to the John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University, the pioneer maritime school in the Visayas and Mindanao regions of the Philippines.

For the last 60 years, the JBLFMU, formerly the Iloilo Maritime Academy has been one of the major providers of Filipino seafarers, proudly taking an indubitable share in the Philippines’ claim as the world’s manning capital for seafarers.

The University, through its unrelenting quest for excellence, has been granted full autonomy and the university status by the Commission on Higher Education. Accordingly the institution became a dynamo in establishing the much-needed impetus and inspiration to forge through more innovative programs to meet the requirements of the global market.

Keeping pace with the ship manning requirements is what makes JBLFMU dynamic, proactive and innovative.

It is our pleasure to invite you to browse through our history and know more about our services and our incessant quest for, and delivery of, quality education. Feel free to communicate with us through our website and know more about JBLFMU
