Through thorough instruction that sharpens abilities and hones talents, the institution creates important graduate traits that provide every alumnus a competitive advantage in local and worldwide businesses.

What is a Graduate Attribute?

Graduate traits are qualities that every University of Baguio graduates are supposed to possess. During their time at the institution, these qualities are instilled in every student through constant and high-quality teaching, guaranteeing that every graduate can easily exhibit these key characteristics.

Maintaining these characteristics ensures that the institution consistently provides high-quality education to all of its students. This produces highly skilled graduates who can cope with the demands of their chosen field of study.

So, what are the University of Baguio’s graduate attributes?

1. Critical and Creative Thinkers

UB encourages its students to think in a more resourceful and innovative way, to see the broader picture and analyze all sides in order to come up with ideas, concepts, solutions, and opinions.

Critical and creative thinking allows the graduate to look at a certain problem and come up with several solutions that may be more innovative. It also allows them to evaluate knowledge they receive, letting them question whether something is verified or not, a skill very much needed in today’s world of fake news and misinformation.

Critical and creative thinking allows for a more sensible thinker, one that is open to different ideas but still evaluates their worth in any given situation. It allows an individual to hear other people, take in what they have to say, and come up with their own ideas all still grounded in logic, reason, and facts.

2. Active and Lifelong Learners

Learning doesn’t stop when you leave the university, and UB teaches its students to always be open to learning. This ensures that UB graduates stay relevant and will always be updated in their chosen careers or fields.

Active learners have an attitude of eagerness in participating in furthering their knowledge whether through self-directed learning, discussions, seminars and training, creative projects, or other means of learning.

By encouraging this kind of behavior or attribute, UB ensures that its graduates will never be left behind and will always be at the forefront of industry-specific innovations and knowledge.

3. Reflective Leaders

Self-awareness, careful observation, and flexible responses, these are the attributes of a reflective leader and all of them are developed during a student’s stay with UB. whether it’s through the student council, club memberships, competitions, community outreach, and the learning process, all students of UB are encouraged to take lead and see how they can make a difference in their own little way.

The best way for them to do this is to observe and be open to feedback. This in turn, allows them to not only come up with their own innovative ways to deal with different problems or issues, but also to take a good look at themselves.

Careful observation does not only involve looking around you but also looking at yourself, by doing so you can reduce what to do to improve both yourself and the world around you. Reflective leaders are ones who lead for the benefit of everyone, are just, and can always be relied on, not someone who leads for their own benefits and destroys everyone and everything around them. UB trains reflective leaders.

4. Effective Communicators

Effective communicating means delivering what you want to say properly in an effective and clear manner while also being receptive to the input of others. Basically, being able to communicate in a clear and direct way in a manner that is easy to understand.

An effective communicator is not one that necessarily has to use big words, there is no meaning in using them if the directed audience does not get it. Here in UB, students are trained early on to speak in a clear and concise manner, added vocabulary is a bonus, but what is most important is properly delivering what you intend to say, minimizing misunderstandings and misinterpretation.

5. Service-Driven Citizens

UB develops the idea that good customer service drives up businesses or careers. There is value and benefits when a customer leaves a business or service very satisfied.

It is also about giving the best service that one could give in their capacity, much like how the University of Baguio always strives to deliver its quality education. This attribute is one that UB itself regularly shows. 

When one is service driven, they incorporate and nurture ethical skills in their fields, are able to properly interact with others, and are able to foster a relationship with their colleagues, clients, employers, the country, and environment.

When a client knows you gave them the best service you could there will always be positive returns.

As the students get ready to receive their diplomas and move on to the next stage in their lives, the university proudly sees them off with the confidence that they will be able to handle whatever hurdles they may come across. The university warmly congratulates all the future professionals who will be taking to the stage in the coming months; may all your years of training and learning reflect the key attributes imbued in you by the university.
