UM student among top winners in business development contest

UMian Mark Anthony Garvida along with teammates from UP Diliman and De La Salle University cinched the third spot in the Group Final Big Idea Case Study of the Markprof Foundation (MPF) with their ‘Add On! Fun On!’ study, a business proposal that aimed to create more revenue for Cebu Pacific.

The winners of the business development competition were awarded last Saturday, Dec. 1 in Manila.

Garvida is a fourth year student under the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy program, and is among the Top 23 ‘marketing leaders’ who bested nearly 1, 000 applicants across the country to finish the MPF Bootcamp; a series of educational talks and training with top companies in the Philippines over a period of seven Saturdays and learning their best practices to start up, expand, and maintain a business.

The student participants were able to meet with top representatives from companies like Mynt, Google, L’oreal, Unilever, McDonald’s, Nestle, and Globe.
