Since the beginning, SISFU’s vision was to develop global leaders and professionals through transnational education. A good example of realizing this vision is Mr. Michael Joseph Briones, a graduate of SISFU with the degree in Bachelor of Arts in Business Management, is one of our students who is currently enjoying his job and on track with a successful career.
“The rigorous EdExcel and University of Sunderland programs have all helped shape how I tackle my daily tasks at work now. The university taught me how to work under real pressure and increased my critical thinking ability. This has proven true with me at work especially when dealing with unexpected issues/problems. The SISFU community also shaped how I deal with others at work. The program’s extensive group projects and extracurricular activities, made me better in terms of working with my team at Caesars.” Says, Michael.
Through the rigorous academic standards and commitment to excellence of SISFU, it is our mission to prepare our students for the career that they desire. In doing so, they will be able to attain their goals, whether in the Philippines or abroad.
“I am currently in Marketing under Special Events and Promotions for Caesars Entertainment, one of the most geographically diversified gaming companies in the world. As the company owns multiple properties across the US, I am part of the team that handles designing events for them to execute. Dealing with our counterparts in these properties is my number one task; we translate our marketing strategy to event details and provide all necessary means for property to execute well beyond forecasted goals.” Michael adds.
On what his advice for his fellow schoolmates, Michael further elaborates on the importance of knowing what career you want to pursue and grabbing the opportunity when it arises.
“Always be vigilant in finding out what is happening in your career or field of choice so that you will have the ability to recognize opportunities. Some career/market opportunities may only come once in a lifetime so better grab it while it is there. Cultivate your ability to foresee what you want out of your career and equip yourselves with the necessary gears in achieving your goals. Being in SISFU is the best time for you to ponder whether you want to become a successful entrepreneur or be an expert in your craft and climb up the corporate ladder. Luck would always favor the ones who make an effort in doing things beyond their comfort zones. So take risks and never be afraid to fail and learn from mistakes.”
Having established ourselves as the Pioneer in Transnational education, the institution believes that the best has yet to come. Our graduates bring honor and pride, not only to the university, but to our country as well.
