◈ Studied BS in Business Administration
◈ At West Visayas State University
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose Business Administration:
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) was not my first choice actually neither my parents choice, I wasn't also aware that the university was offering that course. After I passed the entrance exam, we were required to fill up form for aptitude exam, that was the time that I discovered about BSBA. To my surprise, it was the first time for the university to offer the course under the Institute of Management department. Right there and then, I've decided to take that course.

list bulletAbout my college education:
I have learned a lot in my course. Honestly, we didn't only experience enjoyment all the time, there were also ups and downs. I have learned a lot of management techniques especially when dealing with people. In our first and second years, we have learned theories mostly in the four corners of the classroom but from time to time we were sent to outside activities like comparing establishments and businesses which I enjoyed most. I have learned that lessons were less difficult if you will learn to love them. Take for example our accounting class, most of us were so bored because we're purely dealing with numbers but I've learned to like it especially when I can answer the 'why' and 'how' that makes me excited to learn more.

There were assignments and exams that were difficult and others were not, it depend on the availability of your source. It's easy when you already know the answer or you have an idea on where to get it. At this time, information are highly available in the internet and in the library or even in our phones so it became fast and easy to answer assignments. There are cases that activities and assignments need a creative mind, in times like this I ask help from others but it is important to nurture your own skills.

Being the pioneer class, we started with 54 students. No one of us failed but two of our classmates transferred to different schools, one stopped for a mission of their church, and the other one died. So, fifty (50) of us graduated this year 2014.

◈ Studied BSBA in Marketing Management
◈ At Polytechnic University Of The Philippines In Taguig City
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout my college education:
I really love my course and my school. It was a lot of fun. It's like a roller coaster ride wherein I've encountered ups and downs, success and failure but overall a satisfying experience and memories that I will not forget for the rest of my life.
My course has taught me to become versatile, friendly and creative. I remember the project that my professor in Marketing ordered us to do, that is to create a unique profitable service that will appeal to PUPIAN students. It started when I was 3rd year college. What I did was to form a group and build up my idea of having a massage center in our school with a twist, wherein instead of massaging them personally we got the help of Garra Ruffa fish, a therapeutic tiny fish that will help to clean your body by eating your dead cells. As a result, it clicks with all the students cause us to become the talk of the campus since that was new to them and there's a point of curiosity that leads them to try the service. For me that was one of my unforgettable moments in college that I need to do in order to pass my major subject in Marketing. That activity helps me to become more futuristic, think out of the box attitude, flexible and hard working. All in all, I can say that my course fits me because it represents myself and it helps me to grow my inner and outer potential.

list bulletMy current job:
I am a Sales and Marketing Assistant in Philprime Global Corporation. We are in the field of construction and earned already a respectable 40 years in the industry. As an assistant, my job is to coordinate and deal to a lot of people both to the clients and personnel. My job allows me to gain a technical knowledge that belongs for a civil engineer. Since our clients are mainly engineers I need to know all the things to our products because I am handling the phonecall inquiries, sometimes I even go to the project site just to offer our products to our clients like my experience of going to Bataan, Batangas and Cavite wherein I can say that the experience is truly worthwhile. I am so happy that I am employed to this company.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college:
Absolutely, what I learned to our university was really practical. Now that I am a career woman now there is the time wherein I think what we did on our college days was tougher than in the reality. On our college days we need to come up with a unique ideas that will improve the marketability of a certain company but now in my work even small ideas, not that so unique, it was very valued and considered already a bright idea. Meaning life in the business world was so easy, just be imaginative and creative.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took only 2 and a half months when I employed to my first job. At first I tried to the industry of telecommunication and banking but I failed to get the job there because maybe, really not meant to be. Others offered me a high salary but requires a pressured schedule and toxicating kind of work wherein at the end of the day I refused with the offer.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSBA in Marketing Management:
My answer here is A BIG YES! Of course, I will recommend the course of Business Administration Major in Marketing Management as a one of a great course to incoming college students. The reasons are, aside from the fact that it will open a lot of opportunities for them, it is also an interesting subject that allows students to experience a lot of things like building a creative career path of them, become socialized, learned to value and express the talents they have and so much more. Actually after graduation, we could easily seek jobs since the course was very versatile. We could line ourselves to the different vacant position in the industry. So therefore I highly recommend this course to all students who will be a college student this coming school year.

◈ Studied BSBA in Human Resource Development Management
◈ At Polytechnic University Of The Philippines In Quezon City
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose BSBA-HR:
Since High School, I dream to interview applicants or to be part of conducting training to the employees. And studying Human Resources have different channels of opportunity (Like being part of recruitment, admin, training, compensation and benefits and any other related field related to HR) that can help me to land a job.

list bulletAbout my college education:
I learned a lot of things with the course I take but there is one thing that struck me the most is learning the principles of the business organization, conducting training, labor laws and Organizational development that really helps me to do my current role in one of a social enterprise company here in the Philippines as a trainer.

I admit that not all subjects are easy as counting 1,2,3. I really had a hard time in studying Income Taxation, Business Finance and Logic (I know, you are surprised), not because of the subject matter but I think, the professors have their different approach in teaching the subject that sometimes makes the subject harder. But from there, there is one thing that the professors teach me, and it's all about being prepared and confident about yourself.

The most useful thing I learned, when we study the Training and Development Subject that helps me today in organizing and conducting training, making training modules and guidelines, and pre-training needs like doing training analysis.

Passing the exam? Yes, it is not difficult to pass the exams, but it depends upon your subject interest, but if you are not doing well and you don't like the subject, do not use it as an excuse! That is already your opportunity to prove that you are smart and hardworking student. Students fail the exam because they do not study well their lessons (Period), don't forget to apply the cause and effect principle when it comes to exam results.

Traits and Attitude to finish the course, here's the ingredients for your success!
8 Packs of Hardwork and Smartwork/ 1 pack per semester
8 Pieces of confidence/ don't be shy! It will help you to land a job easy
8 liters of Patience, I know it will be a long journey but never give up on what you will going to start, you will cultivate all of the good things after you graduate ;).
8 teaspoon of Bravery, too much is bad that will turn you mad and wild, A teaspoon of bravery is enough. It will help you to build confidence to face the challenges in your studies.
8 gallons of Integrity, Rule of thumb - cheating is good for you today but it will not help you to learn and to prepare yourself in the future. I admit, I cheat before I think once or twice but I learned from it. Don't let yourself harvest spoiled fruit at the end.
8 cups of stewardship, use your brain! it is a gift from God, so don't use it for useless things like playing games during class, or have a chit-chat with your seatmate. There is always a time and place for everything.
8 spoons of humility or humbleness/ there is I in Pride, not all people will like that! Letting your pride high will just contain you to learn more. If you don't know, ask someone that is good to the subject matter you HATE. Not all your classmate will help you but someone in the class or in the school will help you with the subject. Always remember that successful people always drink a dosage of humbleness and a swallow bars of pride.
Millions of Pieces of Faith, Have faith to our Creator, you know He have a plan for you why you choose that course or why you had a hard time in some of the subjects. Don't give up, don't jump to one course to another, He can't help you to establish yourself and prepare you in the future. Finish what you started and God is always there to help you to finish your training.

list bulletMy current job:
Retail Training Associate is responsible for:
Create training modules aligned with the current process and operations furnished by Merchandising operations Department and training needs.
Conduct training to new hired merchandisers in preparation to their operational needs
Conduct up-skills training (product, sales training) to the merchandisers for performance and sales improvement
Monitor real time performance monitoring for coaching and evaluation
Create training and evaluation reports of the merchandisers

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college:
Not all of the subjects I learned are relevant to my current role. The things I learned in college that is very useful is about organizing training, doing training needs analysis, organizational development, and maybe some of accounting principles because training is also equal to the expense to the company so I also make reports about the expenditures while doing a certain training.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I never had a hard time to land a job after graduation since I follow the advice of one of my professors that on our Final On the job Training, it must our prospected company. After Graduation, that was May of 2013, I continue my internship. After a month, my HR Manager told me to process my requirements and gave me the JO.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSBA-HR:
Yes! Since BSBA major in Human Resources has a lot of career opportunities in Business World, you can be a part of admin team, training team, recruitment team, payroll team, or may finance/accounting team.

For fresh graduates, depending on what role you have, you can earn as much as P15,000 - P18,000 a month.

For more experience employee - they can earn P18,000 - P40,000
(positions - HR Officer, Recruitment Officer, Admin Officer, Supervisor, HR Manager, Training Manger, Recruitment Manager, HR Head)

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Ensure you have deep interest in business organization, talking to other people, and ensure you have a strong personality but a mixture of humbleness and more importantly ensure that you really want the course, it is a big factor to consider in taking up the program. If you don't have any choice and BSBA is your last resort, think about it, I know you want to take up IT or Accountancy or Engineering and the slots are full : (but I will tell you, Human Resources in all companies ROCK! I know it myself because I am working in Human Resources Department. There will be a time you will fall in love with the course and embrace it. But if you really don't like it from the heart and mind and considering the course, you are wasting your time.

list bulletWhy did I choose BSBA in Marketing Management:
During my last year in high school I wasn't decided yet as to what course to take in college. I wanted to take up interior design, I know I have this creativity in me but I am not confident enough to take fine arts as a course. I also tried child development courses which I passed with a school that has expensive tuition fees. I think the deal breaker was to get a course wherein I don't have to worry much on the expenses and where I can land a job in a variety of industry and that is to take up Commerce/business administration.

list bulletAbout my college education:
I learned a lot from school. Marketing theories strategies etc. The subject I enjoyed the most are my business communication subjects. Wherein I got a perfect score in one of the prelim exam. I enjoyed the interaction among the students and the idea of communicating to real institutions and companies to be able to get the assignments done. Some exams are difficult to pass but nobody had to repeat the subject. Self motivation is I think a good attitude that will get you through any course in your college life.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college:
I honestly think that I wasn't able to apply things that was taught during college, or maybe I wasn't aware that I am already doing it. What I am quite sure is that all the activities and knowledge from my school and the fact that my school was one of the top schools in the country made me more confident to face the job interviews; and that confidence gave me an edge in making things work when you already got the job.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took me four months after graduation to land a job.

◈ Studied BSBA in Marketing Management
◈ At University Of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose BSBA in Marketing Management:
I chose this particular course because it suited me. Before taking series of college entrance exams, I was undecided then on what program do I really want to embark my future on. Then, with the help of the guidance council's series of personality and course fits to my capability, those lists of programs being offered by many universities and colleges go down to three which are Business courses, Hospitality courses and Crafty courses. Since crafty courses are in a form of hobby that I can acquire skills through enrolling for a month classes, business courses and hospitality courses are now the choices. But then, I prayed on which one should I choose and God gave me a sign. I passed on a business program.

list bulletAbout my college education:
I've learned the fundamentals of management and the deeper sense of marketing since I am taking it as a major.

The most difficult subjects with a very time-consuming and great effort needed is all the subjects that a junior and senior marketing management major needs to take. These are market research, consumer behavior, distribution management, strategic management, integrated marketing communications, marketing management, business laws (specifically corporate, contracts, and negotiable instruments), and so on.

The most useful things that I've learned are all the things that I acquire from my major subjects as well as the advice from religion subjects and the hands-on training/experience as a member/trainee in an organization.

Exams were always difficult especially if you don't prepare for it. There's a mandatory saying that "If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail." Credits to the one who said that but it is really true. It is inevitable to have difficult exams and many people will fail on exam in a certain subject and sometimes, the professor will force to do another exam to grant us a re-take. As for my batch, there were people who shifted to another course but not all have the same reason. Some of them changes their interest, etc.

For me, the traits and attitude required for succeeding in this course are patience, entrepreneurial spirit, optimistic and the urge to finished the program. Patience because this course has or it requires a lot of paperwork, analysis and out of this world ideas. By being optimistic, it helped me get out of the bumpy road of college life mostly during the times that I nearly gave up. With the entrepreneurial spirit, you'll not be taking business course if you're not interested with it. Okay then, there are few instances especially in our school that a lot of students taking this specific course because their parents wanted them to. Entrepreneurial spirit may not or really will not work out. I believe that if one wants to achieve something, he or she must be eager to do in any good way or means just to finish school. One may have different ways on how to succeed but I know with perseverance, it is really possible.

list bulletMy current job:
As of the moment, I am looking for a job that will matches my line of interest. I am looking for a job on events/trade marketing or those positions that involves hands-on, travelling and organizing events.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
For those who are considering to study the same course that I have already taken, if you are really giving a lot of thinking to this course... Why not give it a try? If you want to talk practicality, this course will bring you ROI since companies need us because Marketing Professionals or Marketers are considered as a bloodline of the company. Also, management courses that you'll be taking up are really useful in whichever industry you intend to work for especially those fundamentals that you'll be learning. If you want a course that is fun, this course will bring your mind upside down as you need a lot of creativity to create an innovate/ out of the box ideas that will satisfies the majority need. The more fun here is you will have a chance to create something that will be of a need by people and know the possibility if they are actually needing it or not. Not only for the tangible ones but also for the intangibles. You can also experience conceptualizing advertisements. Sounds wonder

list bulletWhy did I choose BSBA in Marketing Management:
Because this is my passion, I found myself challenge with this course, since I've been exposed to business world when at a young age. I love dealing with people.

list bulletAbout my college education:
I learned that marketing course is merely a strategy and innovation, that you need to identify the unending needs and wants of a customers, who have different interest and preferences, how can you satisfy them with your service and products offered is the big challenge. That the 4'ps of marketing are essential in one's business which include the product, place, price, promotion. How you create and come up of idea on how a products or services can be beneficial to customers to make their life easy and save time for them. The efficient and effective way of using services and products and how you can delight them in higher degree.

The most difficult challenge was to innovate products from scrap. So we come up with corn husk we made basket, coin purse, bags and different sizes and designs.

The most enjoyable moment was to sell those products in affordable prices, professors, teachers, students appreciated our works and luckily with hardship we passed our thesis because this a big chance that we can graduate in this field of course.

In order to pass this course you need to focus, take advance reading of the next topic, read a lot, manage your study habits, research for additional information and ask your teachers or co- students if there a things not understand, be reluctant, and learned to enjoy it. Because if you have a attitude of come what may that you depend or cheat your seat mates, I assure you that professors are very strict when it comes to quizzes and exams that it one or two seats apart. I realized that school is merely preparation of life outside the business world and challenge my self in this course that you will learn to be creative, competitive, unique, patient, develop negotiation skills and analytical skills.

This course will bring you unlimited opportunities. As long, that there is needs and wants for customers exist, business entities exist, bpo's, education, health, it will be easy to find job because marketers are flexible that they able to adapt easily find there selves suit in different jobs.

When it comes to province the minimum salary in a month would be 9,000 to 11,000, but in Manila rate will range to 15 to 18,000. For experienced employees they might have an average of 18,000 and 25,000 above.
