How will ride-sharing apps cope with the new normal? How are e-commerce platforms adjusting with the boom in the digital transformation? What’s the future of automation and the academe?
To answer these questions, the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants – De La Salle University Chapter (JPIA – DLSU) will be holding its 10th annual accounting convention this April 17 and 24.
Entitled Exceed 2021, the event aims to bring together the brightest and most ambitious students from different universities around the country to ponder on and shape solutions based on the theme “Reshaping Business Dynamics, Catalyzing Post-Pandemic Nation Building.”
Originally planned as a physical event, this year’s convention will be held entirely via Zoom and YouTube due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the organizers, however, a benefit of this setup is that they’re now able to open doors to more students from other regions in the country.
“For the past 65 years, JPIA – DLSU continues to uphold its core values in hopes of serving the best interests of its stakeholders,” said Rychel Namol, the president of JPIA – DLSU. “In line with this, the organization aims to assist future CPAs by equipping them with the necessary skills as they enter the business world.”
“The Accounting Convention aims to broaden its participants’ knowledge about the fields of accounting and business, how the pandemic affected them, and how it will form part of the nation’s future,” continued Namol.
The two-day event will be composed of the following:
- Plenary – April 17, 1 pm to 3 pm
The Plenary session will feature panelists from the top Philippine accounting firms who will share their experiences and insights on the changing dynamics of business.
- Simultaneous Classes – April 17, 3 pm to 5 pm
Immediately after the conclusion of the Plenary session, participants will have the opportunity to attend one of the various simultaneous classes covering specialized topics, such as ride-sharing amid a pandemic and the boom of e-commerce.
- Symposium – April 24, 2:30 pm to 7 pm
The Symposium will highlight the roles of business students across the different professional fields. Distinguished speakers renowned in their respective career fields will be presenting at the Symposium.
