Arta And Dhvsu Partner To Launch Master’S Program In Regulatory Management

The Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) has partnered with Don Honorio Ventura State University (DHVSU) to introduce a master’s-level program focused on regulatory management. This collaboration aims to enhance capacity-building for future regulators, as educational institutions play a crucial role in contributing to this field.

ARTA Secretary Ernesto V. Perez voiced his enthusiasm about the memorandum of understanding (MoU), stating that it signifies the importance of equipping current and future professionals with international best practices in good regulation. The goal is not only to empower the existing workforce but also to invest in the younger generation, equipping them with the necessary tools and techniques to design effective regulations for years to come.

This agreement marks a significant milestone as Regulatory Management becomes part of the educational curriculum for the first time. ARTA hopes that integrating this discipline into academic programs will foster a more business-friendly environment, benefitting both enterprises and individuals operating within regulated sectors.

In response, DHVSU President Enrique G. Baking affirmed his institution’s commitment to supporting ARTA and other partner agencies in their shared mission. As a state institution, DHVSU recognizes the significance of regulatory management and its potential to achieve collective aspirations.

Under this MoU, DHVSU, located in Bacolor, Pampanga, will offer a Master’s degree in Public Administration (MPA) specifically tailored for aspiring regulators. The MPA program will focus on reducing regulatory burdens and enhancing regulatory quality through an exploration of various pedagogical approaches such as regulatory impact analysis tools, policies, and lenses.

To ensure the success of this collaborative endeavor, ARTA will work closely with DHVSU in developing the curriculum. Their partnership extends beyond theoretical aspects as ARTA will provide valuable inputs on subject discussions, activities, and requirements. Additionally, they will identify interested ARTA personnel who can join the program, further strengthening ties between academia and government bodies.

This initiative between ARTA and DHVSU represents a significant step forward in enhancing regulatory management in the Philippines. By equipping future regulators with the necessary knowledge and skills, this collaboration aims to create a regulatory environment that fosters economic growth and development.
