The National Federation of Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants, in partnership with SGV’s Advisory Group, held an Advisory Case Study Competition as part of the 33rd Annual National Convention last 1-4 May 2016 at the Hotel Dominique in Tagaytay City.

The Advisory Case study session was led by Risk Senior Director Conrad Allan Alviz, with the assistance of Risk Associates Luisa Alyanna Gloria, Elline Isabelle Pasion, and John Leovic Villanueva.

Unlike the usual business case paper, the case was a simulated advisory engagement involving client interaction through email, which challenged the participants beyond their technical knowledge and tapped into their communication and collaborative skills.

After the orientation, participants worked on written reports that were submitted the next morning. The top five finalists advanced to the oral defense round. After the oral defense, a short debrief immediately followed. The winners were announced later that night during the awarding ceremonies.

Based on the paper and presentation scores, the winners were accounting students from the University of Santo Tomas – Champion, De La Salle Dasmariñas – 1st runner-up, De La Salle Lipa – 2nd runner-up, Ateneo de Davao University – 3rd runner-up and University of San Carlos – 4th runner-up.
