NU holds CBA week; hosts SM and SDG roadshows

National University held its annual “CBA Week” last February 12 to 15, 2018 at the National U premises.

The week-long event aimed to showcase the students’ best ideas, taught them what to expect after graduation and served as a platform to integrate the theoretical frameworks learned inside  the classroom.

Several activities were lined up for the benefit of around 1,600 CBA students.

Among the organized festivities were Alternative Learning Classes (ALC), where students were taught how to enhance their skills and knowledge and these classes were led by John Robert Powers, ABS-CBN, Pru Like UK, and more; Miss Q & A, The Voice, 2030 Youth Force “Global Goals Fair” and the SM Roadshow.

The SM Roadshow, which happened to be one of the highlights of the four-day event, catered to around 300 graduating CBA students.

Some of the topics discussed were workplace communication and professional etiquette, job interview tips and how to better relate and professionally connect with people of different ages.

NU also hosted the Global Goals Fair or the launching of the 2030 Youth Force Sustainable Developmental Goals programs attended by students from NU and different universities in the NCR. This served as a training ground for students on how to craft projects and programs for their community.

Entrepreneurship management students were also given the chance to put up booths where they displayed the products and services they offered.

Meanwhile, according to CBA Dean Maria Teresa Gonzales, due to the SM Roadshow’s success, they are now planning to organize another event similar to this.

“This will be a continuing partnership with them. SM is willing to repeat it, this time it’s going to be institutional. Students from other colleges will be invited.

The week-long celebration was organized by the College of Business Administration, Accountancy Student Council and faculty members in partnership with JMA, JFINEX, JPIA, and NU Network of Student Entrepreneurs.
