These company-partners are directly involved in the evaluation of performance of marine engineering cadets, specifically of the Marine Engineering Department, John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University-Molo, Iloilo City. The Performance Prism (PP) Theory was used in this study as theoretical framework to measure stakeholder satisfaction of different company partners. This is an innovative performance measurement and performance management framework of the second generation. Employing quantitative-qualitative method of analyzing the obtained data, the study entailed three phases, namely: (1) survey personally administered by the researchers, (2) the personal interview with the stakeholders, and (3) analysis of the results of the survey using descriptive statistical methods such as the mean, frequency count, and percentage. The information gathered through the interviews was used to validate the results by quantitative data analysis. The data-gathering instrument was the ?Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey.? Quantitative results revealed that the stakeholder satisfaction level was ?moderately high? among marine engineering cadets in terms of communication, professionalism and trustworthiness, communication, discipline, loyalty, consistency of performance, leadership skills, honesty, industry, social responsibility, and initiative to be satisfactory. The different comments, remarks, suggestions, and responses derived from the interviews were used also in the study as qualitative data to enhance and validate the quantitative data. Furthermore, the qualitative views of the respondents were used to suggest some improvements and innovations in the learning process at Marine Engineering Department of Maritime University (JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City), Philippines.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Maritime Education and Training (MET), MET System in the Philippines, Crewing, Marine Engineering, Stakeholder Satisfaction, Marine Engineering Cadets, Personnel Manager, Crew Resource Management (CRM)} }
