October 2016 Accomplishment Report

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).

After which, medals were awarded to the UP Cebu contestants and their coaches for ranking first in the regional level. It was indeed hard work, determination and prayers that helped the participants get the first place

The last part of the program was the announcement of the national results. The top 20 universities nationwide will be participating in the final round of the competition this coming Nov 21, 2016 to be held in BangkoSentralngPilipinas. It was overwhelming to see that UP Cebu ranked 6th together with the University of the East – Manila. UP Diliman ranked first with 460 points, followed by De La Salle University-Manila with 445 points, and Ateneo de Manila University with 380 points.
The three contestants took a photo together with one of their coaches Mr RhenozoBarte, the 4th year BS Management students, and FINEX Manila representative.

Nurtured to Create. Inspired to Innovate. Destined to Serve.
