Academic Program Improvement on An Introduction to Geographic Information Systems: Enhancing Data Analysis, 29 March 2017 held at UP Cebu School of Management Lounge, Cebu City

 

Knowledge and use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provides a third dimension in data analysis, particularly in discovering and understanding spatial patterns that may be present in data gathered for marketing, operations, finance or human resource-related research.  Recognition of any spatial patterns from geographically referenced data could provide a fresh insight into the formulation of business/functional area strategies thereby enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of organizations.  It is worthy to note that the use of this tool has become practical today because of the availability and/or affordability of open source GIS software and data gathering technologies.

18th Inter-Collegiate Finance Competition

UP Cebu has participated in the 18th Inter-Collegiate Finance Competition (Central and Eastern Visayas elimination round) held at the University of San Carlos last October 14, 2016. UP Cebu’s representatives were Jermyn Galera, Heide Mae Patiga and Mitzi Luar. They were accompanied by their coaches: Mr Rhenozo Barte and Mr Stevenson Yu. Out of the 11 participating schools, UP Cebu ranked first in the regional level.

The easy and moderate rounds went smooth as UP Cebu topped in the first 2 rounds.

The most nerve-wracking part was the last question in the difficult round. Aside from the fact that each difficult question was worth 20 points, what thrilled the contestants the most was that almost everyone else answered choice “B”, while only three schools (including UP Cebu) had choice A as their answer.

After that stunning moment, the host finally revealed the correct answer – which is choice A. UP Cebu garnered a total of 360 points, followed by UC-LM with 330 points, and USC with 325 points.

Certificates of participation were given to each university signed by Rene Jazmines (Junior FINEX Overall Chairman), Edith Dychiao (Junior FINEX Liaison Director), and George Chua (FINEX President).
