The MDP stands as a testament to MASS-SPECC’s commitment to nurturing co-operative leaders who not only excel in their managerial roles but also embody the co-op principles at their core.


This year’s graduation ceremony, slated on November 22, 2023, at the Mallberry Suites Business Hotel, Limketkai Center in Cagayan de Oro City, proved to be a momentous occasion bringing together graduates from batches 2020 to 2023.

Amid the challenges posed by the pandemic, MASS-SPECC has stood resilient, ensuring that the postponed joint graduation became a celebration to remember. 



The ceremony featured special messages from Dr. Peter Davis of Leicester University (MDP Module 1 Trainer) and Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) Region 10 Director Aminoden A. Elias, adding depth and perspective to the celebration.



The event was particularly noteworthy as it featured a special discourse with Jonathan Yabut, a well-known author and motivational speaker, during the lecture forum on the management and leadership segment. Yabut’s enlightening session focused on two crucial elements of organizational success – social media marketing and championing teamwork.



Attendees online and onsite gained valuable insights and inspiration from the lecture. It is a truly valuable experience that includes the diverse facets of modern co-operative management and insights into the anatomy of successful teamwork and strategies to cultivate a collaborative environment, emphasizing the importance of transparency and collaboration among co-ops.



The ceremony also featured testimonials and commitments from the graduates, spotlighting their dedication and readiness to apply what they learned to develop their co-operatives and communities.



This celebration isn’t merely about academic accomplishments; it’s a collective affirmation of dedication, perseverance, and the commitment to uphold the co-operative movement.
