Learn for Life with SPaCE, Bukas’ newest partner


If you are a professional seeking to grow and advance in your career, you probably considered enrolling in a course that would equip you with skills in in-demand industries such as digital marketing and design, to name a few.

The good news is you can now acquire sought-after skills through a shorter, custom-tailored program that aligns perfectly with your unique career goals, without the need for a four-year degree.

A space for continuous growth

SPaCE, or the School of Professional and Continuing Education, is DLS-CSB’s non-degree arm and Bukas’ newest partner that is created for both experienced professionals who want to change or advance in their careers and for newcomers who want to jumpstart a career through further studies. Whichever you are, there’s a SPaCE (program) for you!

SPaCE offers certificate, diploma, and short courses for in-demand industries that could unlock additional opportunities for professionals in their chosen fields. Applicants can also look forward to high-quality training led by experienced industry professionals. Just as what you would expect from a Lasallian education! Certificate and diploma programs in SPaCE are all to be conferred by De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB).

In 2021, the School partnered with the Philippine Stock Exchange Inc. (PSE) to launch the first ever online Certified Securities Specialist Course! This is just one of many efforts that prove SPaCE’s commitment in making education more aligned and adaptable to the learning needs of the current generation. Interested applicants can choose from SPaCE’s diverse range of course offerings through its twelve (12) program clusters:

Never stop learning with SPaCE through Bukas

With this new partnership, taking further studies to amplify learning and career growth just become more accessible and affordable to Filipino learners—regardless of educational and professional background. Gelli Cahulogan, a Benilde SPaCE graduate of Diploma in Strategic Marketing Management and Diploma in Strategic Digital Marketing, shares how her programs helped her as a Cluster Marketing Communications Manager.

“I entered SPaCE with the intention of just getting one course, and that's it! But because of the fun learning environment, experienced lecturers, and classmates from all walks of life, I just saw myself enrolling from one course to another. I am proud to say that I am able to apply whatever I learned in SPaCE to my job today as the Cluster Marketing Communications Manager of not just one, but three Marriott properties in the Philippines.”
