UP-Visayas to represent country in Int'l Accountancy contest

ILOILO CITY, July 11 (PNA) -- Four B.S. Accountancy students from the University of the Philippines in the Visayas (UPV) bested rivals from different accountancy schools nationwide to earn the right to represent the country in the International Accountancy Quiz Competition to be held in China on July 23 to 24 this year.

The four Filipino representatives to the prestigious event, Dominic Dapad, Gerard Cordero, Mara Francillan Cordero, and Ordy Osorio emerged champions in a national accountancy tilt entered into by equally-gifted future accountants from around the country by gaining the best marks during the oral presentation last June 10 and ultimately, the nod of the judges.

According to their mental coach, Professor Arthur Barrido, Jr., only six schools made it to the Finals which included De la Salle University of Manila, San Carlos University, Notre Dame University of Mindanao, and University of the Philippines-Visayas. In the initial stage, the contesting schools were asked to submit an Accounting Case Analysis written report which became the basis for the oral presentation. (PNA)
