The University of Makati was founded in 1972 as Makati Polytechnic Community College, also known as MPCC. MPCC offered technical vocational programs in industrial and business technology. In 1987, MPCC was renamed Makati College.
The Philippine Army turned over the Fort Andres Bonifacio College to the Municipal Government of Makati and merged with Makati College in 1990. In 1991, Makati College was renamed Pamantasan ng Makati by virtue of Municipal Order no. 433.
To be more globally competitive, Pamantasan ng Makati changed its name to University of Makati or UMak in 2002 through City Ordinance 2002-111 paving the way for education innovations in the City of Makati.
