After three years of consistent academic excellence, 11 of Southville International School Affiliated with Foreign Universities’ (SISFU) students have been awarded with First Class Honours by De Montfort University (DMU) in Leicester, UK.
Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration are the following:
(Management stream) Daniel Steel, Exequiela Gonzales, Christian Aaron Alvarez, Hajer Ashraf, Gayle Zosa, Melissa Francesca Gonzales, Rachel Myka Royena and Iris Grace Tanael;
(Marketing stream) Abigael Maan Escobar, Sarah Muhsen and Joanna Pauline Bugayong.
The above DMU degree programme (also called top-up) follow an extensive two-year study in the same fields under the Higher National Diploma (HND) from Pearson, UK.
Exequiela Gonzales explained that the HND and the DMU curricula are especially designed to equip students with all the skills and principles necessary for the business world.
According to Aaron Alvarez, he has learned a vast amount of knowledge at SISFU--from the four P's of Marketing to the teachings of international Marketing gurus. He stressed that above and beyond learning the theories and concepts in business, he has imbibed something far more valuable: how to stay driven in achieving one's goals. “SISFU swamps us with research projects and assignments that most people would find difficult to accomplish all at the same time. I, too, found them extremely challenging, but my professors and mentors taught me how to set goals, push through, and persevere. SISFU helped me develop my work ethics and character. These I will always value as I start my journey toward the business world,” he added.
This early, some of the above SISFU graduates are already getting offers for employment in various industries, while others are planning to stay longer in the academe to pursue graduate studies.
The aforementioned DMU students formally graduated on Wednesday, 21st of June 2017. Their graduation was locally celebrated at a special ceremony at Insular Life, Alabang to applaud their success.
SISFU congratulates these graduates on their achievements and wishes them the best in their future endeavors.
