PRC confers Achievement Award to DLSU-Manila
For excellence in accounting education

The Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC) and the Board of Accountancy recently bestowed the most admired private university in Southeast Asia this year’s Achievement Award for excelling in accounting education.

De La Salle University-Manila topped Category 2 in the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) licensure examinations in the years 1996 to 2000. PRC ranks the universities and colleges by categories based on the number of examinees they produce for a given year. For instance, schools that fall under Category 2 have an average of 51 to 99 examinees.

Dear Roly:

I wish to thank you and the DLSU Academic Community for all your concern, prayers, and support. I deeply appreciate it.

Warm regards.

Over the period of five years, out of 786 accounting graduates who took the exams, 547 passed. DLSU-M proudly posted a 70 percent performance level, followed by the University of the Philippines-Visayas with 38 percent and Pamantasan ng Lunsod ng Maynila garnering 31 percent.

Dr. Teresita Nadurata, chair of the Accountancy Department, thanks the administration for its continued support throughout the years. She also commends everyone—from the dedicated faculty to the hardworking students—for a job well done.

The award was given last November 15 at the Philippine International Convention Center during the oath-taking ceremony of the October 2000 CPA licensure board passers.

The recognition was presented by PRC officials led by Chairperson Hermogenes Pobre and Board of Accountancy Chair, Antonieta Fortuna-Ibe.

In another development, graduating BSA students emerged winners in the inter-school accounting quiz bee held at the San Beda last November 8. Ronelle Mendoza won first place in the Business Law and Taxation category, while Elynor Reyes placed second in the Theory of Accounts and Auditing Theory category.

Every year students from various universities and colleges from the National Capital Region (NCR) participate in the prestigious quiz bee.
