Entrepreneurship (Entrep) students under the College of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) grabbed multiple awards with a masterful performance at the 10th Entrepreneurship Educators Association of the Philippines (ENEDA) National Conference. With the theme “The Future is Bright: ENEDA is 10,” the confab was held at Patio Victoria in Intramuros on February 24 to 26.
The Entrep students competed and won awards in seven categories: sophomore Joanne Mary Eco, Festival of Ideas; freshman Maureen Remanes, iBox; junior Valelie San Pablo, In-Basket; sophomore Joshua Hipolito, Venture Pitch; freshman Mark John Lampa, Food Dish; sophomore Charlotte Tan, Non-Alcoholic Beverage; and juniors Jewell Anne Balignasay and Kristoffer Ian Bantay, joint winners of the Best Barbecue Sauce competition.
“We’re very happy to see our students receive these awards,” said Entrep area chair Asst. Prof. Raem Mendoza, adding, “This would really inspire our students further and give a boost to the course.”
During the confab, Mendoza was given an Achievement Award for his invaluable services as one of the founders of ENEDA. Also, CBAA dean Dr. Cristina Cabral was chosen as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) during the elections for the new batch of ENEDA executive officers. Furthermore, Christine Bustos, president of Letran’s Young Entrepreneurs’ Society (YES), was also elected as PRO of the national YES organization. YES is the student org counterpart of ENEDA.
The Entrep area is currently working on its curriculum revisions as mandated by the Commission on Higher Education. “We are in the process of completing the documents. We are revising the course [and its sequence], and preparing our first draft to be critiqued by our peers,” said Mendoza.
Once approved, the curriculum revisions will immediately take effect at the start of AY 2012-2013.
