An elimination round was held simultaneously all over the country on 26 October 2018 in seven places: JP Morgan at Taguig City for the National Capital Region, the University of San Carlos for Central Visayas, and other venues spread across the Philippines to serve the other regions. In total, there were 92 entrants to the competition in 2018, and Team UP Cebu finished as one of the Top 20 qualifiers nationwide.

On 23 November 2018, three representatives of the Junior Financial Executives (JFINEX) – UP Cebu Chapter went to Manila with their coach to participate in the 20th Inter-collegiate Finance Competition’s final round at the Assembly Hall of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Malate. Twenty universities from all over the country, such as the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, UP Visayas Ilo-ilo, Ateneo de Davao University, De La Salle University-Manila, and University of San Carlos to name a few, met at BSP to compete. The B.S. Management students who represented Team UP Cebu were Sheena Mae Bajar, Trishia Ann Marie Simon, and Mary Rose Telamo. The coaches who helped them prepare for the competition were School of Management (SoM) Professors Rhenozo Barte and Stevenson Yu. Team UP Cebu finished 8th place.
