The Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants – De La Salle University-Manila Chapter (JPIA-DLSU) will be holding the biggest annual accounting convention entitled EXCEED2022 this coming May 21-22, 28-29, 2022. Students from all over the country are invited to participate and engage as they go beyond limits in pursuing greater growth through the Accounting Convention and the Accounting Challenge.
This event will also serve as the representative of student participation in the Centenary Celebration of the Accountancy Profession, an event spearheaded by the Philippine Regulatory Board of Accountancy.
EXCEED has always paved the way for gathering the best and the brightest business and accounting students all over the country through its annual challenges and conventions. With this year’s theme of ‘’Recalibrating the Norm: Augmenting Integrity and Business Synergy’’, EXCEED2022 aims to capture the goal of heightening accountability and transforming business minds into opportunity-seeking and critical ones whilst creating limitless opportunities in various industries for the greater growth of society.
The Accounting Convention
Future business leaders are invited to listen and be inspired by the expertise and wisdom of the speakers hailing from different areas of specialization through the Accounting Convention. Interested participants may choose to attend three events, namely the Plenary, the Simultaneous Classes, and the Symposium.
EXCEED2022 will be opening with the Plenary wherein directors and partners from top firms in the country are invited to a panel discussion to share their experiences and insights about the theme provided.
Meanwhile, the Simultaneous Classes will be a two-part series that will cover classes in specialized topics relating to business. Classes will include but will not be limited to academe, investment, career, and innovation which will help pique the curiosity of the participants in the vast field of accounting and business.
Lastly, the Symposium will be capping off EXCEED2022 by highlighting the roles of accountants in the different fields of accounting and business. Invited keynote speakers will be from the different branches of accounting, namely Public, Commerce and Industry, Academe, and Government.
The Accounting Challenge
Meanwhile, students may also opt to take on the accounting challenge and battle it out to take home this year’s crown. Aspiring contestants may choose from three different challenges, namely the Business Case Competition, the Quiz Bee, and the Virtual Amazing Race.
The Business Case Competition will expose the contestants to scenarios concerning the different strategic areas of the business to test their critical thinking skills and capabilities as future business leaders.
The Quiz Bee, on the other hand, will challenge the contestants’ proficiency and academic excellence in the six board exam subjects covered by the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination (CPALE) while going head-to-head against other CPA hopefuls.
The Virtual Amazing Race aims to bring a new type of competitive environment online while testing the collaboration and communication of the contestants in solving problems through clues and hints while being subjected to time pressure.
In its eleventh iteration, EXCEED2022 continues to inspire students and future business leaders to go above and beyond to create a better normal, and a more inclusive future for everyone. The event aims to empower leaders to be the catalyst of change that acts with honesty, fairness, and incorruptibility not just at present, but in the future as well.
