Full-time faculty members and staff attended the strategic planning of the Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) of the UP Open University last 20 May 2013 at the Sandbox, UPOU. 

They reviewed past activities, programs and projects of FMDS. Likewise, they evaluated the issues, challenges and trends that may impact on the vision, mission and goals of UP, UPOU and FMDS.
