About FMDS

Faculty of Management and Development Studies

The Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) is one of the three faculties of studies of the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU). It was established in 2004 when the then Faculties of Health Sciences and of Management Studies, both established in 1995, were merged.

As a collective of various disciplines spanning from the health to the environment to management and to the development fields, it deals with policy, program and development concerns related to environment and natural resources management, land valuation, research and development, nursing, international health, social work and public management. These thematic areas have become the teaching, research, extension and public service areas of the FMDS over time.
