Written by Administrator on 06 October 2017

Capacitating entrepreneurs within the bounds of MMSU with entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to continually provide support services to the students and employees is a challenge addressed through a four-day half-day seminar-workshop on Enterprise Development conducted last September 19-22, 2017 at the Dining Hall of the University Training Center. This initiative was a collaboration between the MMSU-Extension Directorate, the College of Business, Economics, and Accountancy, and the MMSU-Enactus to capacitate store and food house operators in the campus with the entrepreneurial knowledge and skills needed in the management of their respective businesses and help them develop an entrepreneurial mind set. Also, the activity is an avenue to enhance their social skills with their fellow business owners within the university.

A set of lectures and a workshop beefed the four half-days with CBEA professors as speakers. The first day speakers were Prof. Suerte R. Dy, the Business Affairs Director, in her talk on Knowing about MMSU Community and the Protocols of Food and Non-food Store Operations within MMSU Campus, and Mr. Ronald John P. Gabriel, the Chief of the Business Registration and Licensing Division of the City Government of Batac with Ms. Arnilda Lacambra, Licensing Officer II, on the Requirements in Food and Non-food Business Operations in City of Batac, Ilocos Norte. The second day speakers were Prof. Rhoda Garcia of CAS in her talk on Food Safety and Food Hygiene, and Mr. Errol John V. Valdez, the Enactus Co-adviser, on Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, and Prof. Armie C. Sabugo, CBEA College Secretary, on Winning Marketing Management Strategies in Micro Business. The third day speakers include Prof. Charito B. Julian, the Business Administration Department Chair on Strategic Innovations in the Food and Non-food Industry, Dr. Angelina D. Abrojena, the Dean of CBEA, on managing the Financial Aspects of Business including working capital management and investment management, and Prof. Divina M. Cayabyab, the Chief of Scholarship Program on Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping for Micro Business. The last afternoon was dedicated to the workshop steered by Mr. Errol John V. Valdez with the MMSU-Enactus Students and an organizational meeting with a simple oath-taking ceremony of the elected officers.

Overall, the activity was summed in the participants’ expression of thanks to the organizers managing their enterprise, and the assurance of their full support and cooperation to MMSU under the leadership of the new President.  (Kim Miguel)
