Accomplishment ReportsComments Off on April 2017 Accomplishments

Dr. Mary Gretchen Chaves participated in the 2017 International Symposium on Business and Management held at the Kyoto International Community House, Kyoto, Japan on 4-6 April 2017. She also chaired a session at the event.

Dr. Mary Gretchen Chaves also is a 2016 faculty grant awardee

One of the highlights of this month is the Inauguration of the School of Management. The inauguration was held on 22 April 2017. The event started off with a press conference followed (Figure 1) by the blessing of the new building and a little program for the guests.

The program was short and sweet (Figure 2). As her welcome address, Dr. Tiffany Adelaine Tan, Dean of the School of Management, gave the rationale for the event, which is mainly to invite its alumni to join SoM in its pursuit of its vision – to be the leading regional educational institution for managers. This was followed by the ribbon cutting with Dean Tan, EVP Herbosa and Chancellor Corro. (Figure 3).

There were around 100 alumni (from both the undergraduate and graduate programs) who attended the inauguration (Figure 4). EVP Herbosa was the keynote speaker, in which he offered his support to the School as it moves forward towards achieving its vision and mission (Figure 5). Two alumni were invited to speak in the event. Mr. Francis Sollano (batch 2009) thanked his former teachers for their time and effort to teach him (and their batch) (Figure 6). Prof. Yvonne Gomos (batch 1982), on the other hand, brought back everyone to the time when the School of Management was just a program under the undergraduate program to being a Management Division (Figure 6). Chancellor Liza Corro also joined the event to give the closing remark (Figure 7).
