John B Lacson Foundation Maritime Univerity

The John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University was born from the vision of a young man who pursued his goal with a remarkable passion and zeal that set the tone of leadership in this institution. Master Mariner Juan Bautista Lacson, the founder, first started with a review school for marine officers in May 1931, thus foreshadowing the birth of the Iloilo Maritime Academy in 1948.

1972 marked the beginning of the expansion of IMA to John B lacson Colleges Foundation (JBLCF – Arevalo in 1973), (JBLCF – Bacolod in 1974), (JBLCF – Molo in 1976), and (JBLCF – Puerto del Mar Training Center in Guimaras in 1995).

Assessors from Commission on Higher Education declared the college to have established the best system for equivalency evaluation. It was nominated by CHED as having one of the best HEI Research Programs for 2006. Its greatest achievement by far is its having been granted university status, making it the first maritime university in the country.
