A jam-packed day of up-and-coming talented thinkers and their creations would be one way to describe the fascinating 13th day of December 2022. Billed as “Shaping Innovative Business Leaders: Backdrop of Rebuilding and Adapting to New Business Opportunities,” the Senior High School’s ABM (Accountancy, Business and Management) strand based at the Valenzuela Campus of Our Lady of Fatima University put up their ABM Day to showcase the massive creative minds thriving in their population.
In launching the affair, the Dean of the College of Business and Accountancy, Dr. Ignacio Cordova Jr. emphasized that the ability to innovate is a key ingredient in the success of future business leaders; thus, the event and its overarching theme, which focus on the importance of molding the youth to become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, should be impactful to the ABM Grade 12 student-delegates. He added that the ability to improve on strategies, processes, and implementation will drive the personal growth of the individual, thereby creating incremental positive impact on the community to which he or she belongs.
A day of creative output then ensued.
