“Fellowship of the Peers” is set for November 12. The highlights of the day will include the annual interschool peer interaction which this year has “Peers of Today, Heroes of Tomorrow” as theme, where peer facilitators and peer counselors from other higher educational institutions convene for learning, fun, and camaraderie. The self-identified LGBT support group will also hold its fellowship session, to strengthen the bonds between the members of the support group and their allies.

On November 13, “Heroes’ Day Off,” leisure activities and a community outreach program designed for stress and emotional relief will cap off the weeklong celebration.

UE CBA Manila Professor Presents Entrepreneurial Paper in Florida Conference


UE College of Business Administration-Manila Professor and UE Manila On-the-Job Training Coordinator Jayme C. Ignacio presented his paper on entrepreneurship at the 2015 ASBE/EEP Conference held on September 23-25, 2015 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA. The conference was jointly organized by the Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ASBE) and the Entrepreneurship Education Project, both of which are professional organizations of educators based in the United States.

Prof. Ignacio, through his paper titled “Integrated Entrepreneurial Venture: Re-engineering Business Education in the University of the East,” tackled the pedagogical way of teaching entrepreneurship to students, particularly to non-entrepreneurship students of majors such as Business Management, Financial Management, Marketing Management and Business Economics.

Prof. Ignacio’s discussion also included how entrepreneurial undertaking can be done in an educational institution even if it is not offering any entrepreneurship course. His presentation also emphasized the possibility that the methodology will enable non-entrepreneurship students to develop their entrepreneurial acumen.

The other conference attendees expressed interest as his paper was noted to be unique, since all of the representatives presented researches and practices directly in line with their entrepreneurship course offering.

Professor Ignacio was the lone Philippine representative, with the other attendees coming from Jamaica, Indonesia, India and the USA.

The photo here shows Prof. Ignacio (third from right) with members of the Conference Secretariat.
