 Once again, the UP Baguio Institute of Management  proved its knack and deftness in analyzing business cases when it capped first major place in the 6th PPM Regional Business Case Competition (RBCC)  held in Jakarta, Indonesia last November 18-19, 2015. The team  composed of Serafin Oliviere Lasquety III, Clifford Chan and Hope Alegria Shin, all senior Master of Management students of the Institute of Management,  bested  four  chosen finalists in the second and final round in the competition. They were awarded a cash prize of  US$1,850 in addition to certificates of recognition.

The case analysis was focused on PT Samudera Indonesia Tbk,   a leading and publicly listed  integrated cargo transportation and logistics company based  in Indonesia.

The team ranked third out of the twelve finalists  in the stiff pre-qualifying competition in which 66 teams from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines participated. In this year’s competition, only the UP Baguio, from among the entries in the Philippines,  earned a spot in the qualifying round.  Both the second and fourth  major places went to the PPM School of Management and the third place went to Institut Tekhnologi Bandung, all from Indonesia.

The winning UP  Baguio team was mentored and coached by Dr. Bienvenido C. Marzan, Director  and  Prof. Jay C. Siy of the Institute of Management.  The team  was awarded also the  Second Best in Cultural Presentation during the Cultural Night of the activity.

Last year, the UP Baguio team  composed of  Adrian Reci Galang, Sinta Cando and Frederick Magno also of the Master of Management Program of the Institute of Management  won second place in the 5th PPM Regional Business Competition.

The annual PPM  RBCC is a highly competitive event of teams of  students in the masteral level  from various graduate schools in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapore, China and the Philippines. In the preliminary competition. the  participating teams submitted and competed in analyzing actual business case and in formulating business case solutions.  In the final round, the chosen finalists are asked to present their business analysis and answer challenging questions from the judges  in the areas of finance, marketing, operations, strategic management and human resources management related to the case.  This is the fourth  year of the Institute’s participation where the UP Baguio team also ranked fifth (5th) in the final round in 2012.
