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 theme for the inaugural conference is “Inter-Multi Perspectives and Directions for a Scholarly Research Experience.”

Born to serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and collaborative studies and projects among schools and to become a scholarly and professional research center that provides forums, resources and opportunities for all research enthusiasts and practitioners, the UE Kamaynilaan Research Conference is anchored on the belief that research is one of the most relevant modes through which university education takes place. The conference was established in honor of the late Dr. P. O. Domingo, former Chairman of the Board and President of the University of the East.

Development Academy of the Philippines Chair Cayetano W. Paderanga Jr., Ph.D, will deliver a Keynote Speech on the “Emerging Issues and Challenges in ASEAN Economic Integration: Directions for Research.”

Dr. Paderanga is also a Professor at the University of the Philippines-Diliman School of Economics, a position he has held for the past 36 years. He was part of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) as Secretary from 1990 to 1992 and as Secretary of Socioeconomic Planning and Director from 2010 to 2012. Also among his past positions are Chairman of the Institute of Development and Econometric Analysis, Executive Director and Alternative Executive Director of the Asian Development Bank, Board Member of the ASEAN Foundation and a member of the Monetary Board of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Dr. Paderanga earned his Bachelor of Science in Commerce and Accounting from De La Salle University in 1968. He then went on to earn his Master in Industrial Economics degree from the Center for Research and Communication (now the University of Asia and the Pacific) in 1972, followed by his Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University in 1976.

Dr. Paderanga will be introduced as UE Kamaynilaan keynote speaker by UE Graduate School Dean Julian E. Abuso, Ph.D.

There will also be a Poster Exhibit and Presentation, and Paper Presentations in Parallel Sessions, at 8 a.m., at the UE Graduate School lobby. UE Doctor of Education students Nelson Agoyaoy and Cherry Rojo (who is the launch’s toast master) will serve as facilitators for the paper presentations. Plenary speeches will later be delivered by UE College of Engineering Associate Dean for Computer Studies and Systems Maria Amelia E. Damian, Ph.D.; UE Graduate School Professorial Lecturer Clarissa D. Guia, Ph.D; and UE CAS Caloocan Professor Alberto T. Paala Jr., Ph.D.
