By Entrepreneur Staff |



The UP Junior Finance Association (UPJFA), a student organization based at the UP Cesar E.A. Virata School of Business (formerly the UP College of Business of Administration) in Diliman, is sponsoring a one-day summit on personal finance, entrepreneurship and career planning for high school seniors on November 11, 2017, Saturday. Billed “Return on Investment: Gain the Edge,”  the event will be held at the UP School of Economics Auditorium, which is also located at the UP Diliman campus.



Now on its second year, UPJFA’s flagship financial and career literacy summit aims to bring together 300 senior high school students, from Grades 10 to 12, to provide them with know-how on investing, entrepreneurship and career planning to help develop them into financially literate and successful men and women in later life.


ROI 2017 offers a diverse set of workshops during the summit. The topics of the workshops range from investing in the stock market to basic valuation methods and other specialized topics in finance to supplement delegates’ learnings in their classes.





“Through ROI, we hope to start the wave of a more financially literate generation that will help build the nation,” said UPJFA in a statement. “(Participants of ROI)…will have the opportunity to gain an alternative learning experience and immerse (themselves) in workshops that can provide supplementary lessons to your classes. (They) will also have the chance to build (their) network with other student-leaders participating and with our esteemed speakers.”
