The University of Baguio (UB) team landed as second runner-up in the management advisory case study competition during the 22nd National Mid-Year Convention of the National Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants held in Iloilo City last Nov. 23-26.
UB accountancy students Rachel Lomibao, Kevin Chester Orduña and Czara Jamille Riolada represented UB in the competition, which was sponsored by SGV & Co., a global auditing firm.
Orduña was hailed as the Best Male Presentor in the competition, which was divided into two rounds: the advisory engagement simulation and the case defense. The participants were given a client with a company problem. They then served as consultants, presenting their recommended solutions to the client’s company problem.
