Transforming people’s dreams into reality

The happiness we bring to the provinces through our Robinsons Malls and Go Hotels are what gives me much satisfaction.”
A graduate of the prestigious Ateneo de Manila University, Go cites his educational background as foundation to his sharp management and business sense.
“I wouldn’t be here today without spending my formative years in Ateneo. The Management Engineering bachelor’s degree programme trained me to be logical, process oriented, entrepreneurial, fair, and resourceful.”
