AMA Education System (AMAES) and TNC Group marked a significant milestone on May 10, 2023, as they inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to kickstart the exciting AMAESports 2023: Mobile Legends Challenge.

AMAES, a leading pioneer in IT-based education in the Philippines, and TNC Group, a renowned force in the esports and gaming industries, have over a decade of experience in organizing high-caliber esports events and activations. From humble beginnings, they have emerged as a dominant player, celebrated for their integrity, dedication, and commitment to advancing the gaming ecosystem while providing excellent service to partners and clients across various sectors. They have joined forces in a monumental move set to redefine the esports landscape in the Philippines.


The objective of this partnership extends beyond the thrill of competitive gaming. AMAES is dedicated to leveraging the esports platform to bring a myriad of educational benefits to students. "We recognize the potential of esports as more than just an exhilarating game; it's an innovative avenue to foster important life skills and create countless opportunities for our students," a representative from AMAES stated.

Integrating esports into the AMA Education System's curriculum not only fosters essential life skills such as teamwork, strategic thinking, and effective communication but also encourages interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. The dynamic and competitive nature of esports offers a safe environment for students to develop resilience, adaptability, and problem-solving abilities while at the same time promoting inclusivity by allowing students of all backgrounds and abilities to participate. Moreover, the growing esports industry contributes to the global economy and presents diverse career opportunities, from professional gaming to event management and marketing. This partnership with TNC Group is strategically poised to equip students with the skills and experiences needed for these evolving careers.

The AMAESports 2023: Mobile Legends Challenge, made possible by the MOA signing between AMAES and TNC Group, paves the way for a future where education goes beyond just doing well in exams.

In the wake of monumental victories in the world of Esports, such as SIBOL’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) team clinching their third consecutive gold medal at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games (32nd SEA Games), we can't help but marvel at the unstoppable rise of this digital revolution. Indeed, the world of Esports is brimming with excitement and triumphs.


But beyond the thrill of the game and the glory of the victories, Esports has much more to offer. Its impact extends far beyond the gaming community, offering numerous benefits to society and schools. Here are five compelling reasons why we should all embrace the rise of Esports.




Fostering Teamwork and Communication


At their core, Esports are about teamwork. In team-based games, players must work together, communicate effectively, and strategize to win. These are not just gaming skills; they're life skills. In an increasingly interconnected world, the ability to collaborate and communicate clearly is essential. Schools incorporating Esports into their curriculum can provide a platform for students to develop these critical skills in an engaging and dynamic environment.



Promoting STEM Education


Esports is not just about playing games; it's also about understanding the technology that powers them. This opens up a whole new avenue for promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. Students are encouraged to understand the inner workings of the games they play, leading to interest in coding, graphic design, and data analysis. In essence, Esports could act as a gateway to STEM careers, igniting a passion in students who might not have been exposed to these fields otherwise.



Building Resilience and Problem-Solving Skills


Esports is a competitive arena where losing is as much a part of the game as winning. This offers an opportunity for students to develop resilience and problem-solving skills. They learn to adapt strategies, analyze their mistakes, and strive for improvement - all within the framework of a game. In this way, Esports provides a safe space for students to experience failure and learn from it, equipping them with the emotional resilience necessary to navigate life's challenges.


Offering Inclusive Opportunities In traditional sports, physical prowess often determines participation. In contrast, Esports provides a level playing field, allowing people of all backgrounds, abilities, and genders to participate. It transcends physical barriers and embraces diversity, providing an inclusive platform where everyone has an equal chance to excel. This sense of inclusivity can help foster a more diverse and accepting society. Boosting Economy and Job Creation On a broader scale, the Esports industry is contributing positively to the global economy. With its rapid growth, Esports is creating a myriad of job opportunities - from professional gamers and coaches to event organizers, broadcasters, and marketers. Schools offering Esports programs can prepare students for these emerging career paths, equipping them with relevant skills and experiences that will be valuable in the job market. In conclusion, Esports is more than just a popular pastime; it's a powerful tool that can contribute positively to society and education. Embracing this digital revolution in our schools and society could lead us into a future where learning is not just about scoring high on exams, but also about playing, exploring, and growing in a digital world.

Nora Roberts once said, "If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place." These words have become the cornerstone of Dante A. Calvan Jr.'s life, a tenacious individual who pursued his dream of studying abroad and creating a positive impact on his life and those of his loved ones.

Dante hails from the modest town of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Growing up as the seventh child in a large, loving family, Dante learned the significance of hard work and persistence early on. After earning a 2-year National Certificate IV in Computer Programming, he began working for the Municipality of  Pagudpud. Demonstrating dedication and competence, Dante swiftly climbed the ranks and was reassigned to the Municipal Budget office, sparking his ambition to obtain a degree in Financial Management.


Balancing work and education, Dante maintained focus on his aspiration to study abroad. His research led him to the King's Own Institute (KOI) in Sydney, Australia, offering the Master of Professional Accounting program he sought. Bolstered by his family's encouragement and financial backing from his maternal aunt, Dante applied and was accepted into the program.


This dream became a reality through a collaboration between AMA Education System (AMAES) and KOI, providing students and alumni with pathways to study, work, and reside in Australia. This partnership enabled Dante to chase his ambitions and embark on a journey towards an improved future.

Amidst various challenges, he stayed focused and motivated, aware that his efforts and sacrifices would ultimately be rewarded. Dante's remarkable journey epitomizes the power of hard work, determination, and dreams. Through unwavering dedication and resilience, he achieved his goal of studying abroad and transforming his life and the lives of those dear to him. His story underscores the importance of education and passionate pursuit of one's objectives.


As the world confronts unparalleled difficulties, Dante's story inspires us to persevere and relentlessly pursue our dreams. His success extends beyond personal achievement, becoming a beacon of hope and inspiration for his community and all who know him. His journey highlights the invaluable role of education and the opportunities it affords to those who commit to their aspirations.

Dante's journey exemplifies the program's capacity to change lives. Providing students with essential resources for success, including top-notch education, networking opportunities, and hands-on training, participants acquire the skills and experiences necessary to excel in a globalized world and contribute to their communities.

Dante's story serves as a reminder that through hard work, determination, and a supportive network, we can all realize our dreams. The AMAES-KOI partnership program is just one example of the many opportunities available to those who commit to their goals. Dante's journey inspires us all to never abandon our dreams and to continually strive for a brighter future.

Princess Mae Donayre

When faced with adversity, some people crumble, while others rise to the challenge. Princess Mae N. Donayre, a Filipino student from ABE International Business College, embodies the latter. Despite the pandemic disrupting her education, Princess persevered and made a life-changing decision to study abroad in Australia. Throughout her journey, Princess Mae's unwavering determination and courage have been evident. As a young student, she sold food to classmates and later managed her own small sari-sari store to assist her family. She also ventured into online selling and grew as an entrepreneur. Her uplifting journey is a testament to the transformative impact of passion, tenacity, and the unyielding pursuit of one's dreams. Supported by her parents, Gemma and Joseph Donayre, Princess Mae has been able to overcome challenges and strive for success. Her decision to study abroad in Australia reflects her ambition to experience a new culture, gain a world-class education, and broaden her horizons. Princess Mae's story is an inspiring example of the importance of taking risks and pursuing one's dreams, even in the face of adversity.

Princess Mae Donayre's Inspiring Journey to Study in Australia

Despite the difficulties posed by the pandemic, Princess Mae pursued her passion for business while trying to complete her BSBA program at ABE. Her thirst for knowledge and personal growth drove her to attend the AMA-KOI Convocation event, where her college and King's Own Institute (KOI) Australia hosted an information session about studying in Australia. This ignited her desire to study at KOI in Sydney, where she is now enrolled in a Bachelor of Business majoring in Management and Finance program. While she has only finished two years of her BSBA program at ABE, she continued it via the 2 + 2 pathway program at KOI. Her subjects from ABE are credited.

Princess Mae carefully weighed her options before deciding on Australia for its cost-efficiency, English-speaking environment, and internationally recognized education system. Sydney's vibrant, multicultural atmosphere captivated her, striking a balance between urban energy and opportunities for relaxation and exploration. Ultimately, she selected KOI for its commitment to graduate employability, outstanding student support, and curriculum aligned with her interests. As she embarks on a two-year program, Princess Mae eagerly anticipates studying Business Law, Logistics Management, and Finance Management, culminating in a business project during her final semester.

AMA Education System (AMAES) and King's Own Institute (KOI) recently formed a dynamic partnership that will provide students and alumni of AMAES with a clear pathway to study, work, and reside in Australia.
