Top Universities in the Philippines

Wondering which universities in the country have the most number of centers of excellence (COE) and centers of development (COD) awarded by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)?

We compiled CHED’s memorandum orders on COEs and CODs released from 2012 to 2013, came up with an unofficial tally and ranked schools according to the combined number of their COEs and CODs. In this unofficial ranking, we assigned a point for each university’s COD, and two points for a COE.

COEs and CODs are higher education institutions with the highest degree or level of standards in the areas of instruction, research and extension. The COEs and CODs used in this unofficial ranking will all have their designations expired on May 31 according to CHED.

The University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman came with a commanding lead over other universities with 22 COEs or 44 points. The university has centers of excellence in biology, chemistry, geology, information technology, marine science, mathematics, molecular biology, physics, statistics, broadcasting, journalism, communication, music, foreign language, English, Filipino, Filipino and English literature, political science, psychology, anthropology and linguistics. UP Diliman has no COD.
