JOJI ILAGAN CAREER CENTRE is owned and managed by the Center for Career Development with its main office in Davao City. The Center is registered by the Securities and Exchange Commission and is duly recognized by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS), Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and is an accredited training center of the National Manpower Youth Council (NMYC), World Bank and Overseas Worker's Welfare Administration (OWWA).

Popularly known as JIB, the Center was established in 1981 as the first and remains as the only finishing school in the Visayas and Mindanao. Because of the quality of graduates and the innovative kind of education rendered to the community and the society, the training centre together with its managing director, Joji Ilagan Bian was featured in "Creating Total Women" in Asiaweek, June 1989, which said "Joji Ilagan Brings World Class Training to Women at her School in the Southern Philippines".

Originally, the school designed the curriculum with the "complete woman" in mind: self-assured, poised, graceful and refined. However, enthusiastic patronage-especially among the ranks as well as satisfied parents encouraged JIB to venture and branch out to other fields. JIB accomodated children and professionals, both male and female alike, without losing  sight of the first objective of development - the whole person.

JIB's unique training methods combine lectures, workshops, actual subject exercise and student participation, and on-th-job training all in controlled environment, with honing personality traits to advanced personalized-type of learning. The centre is not much interested in quantity but in quality so that the few would eventually emerge as the BEST in their chosen fields.

In addition to western-style service and educational standards, excellent traditional oriented methods are retained to enhance our graduates' upward mobility. To ensure maximum results, JIB endeavors to maintain an educational atmosphere that is warm, experiential, and theoretical.
