Accounting professor chosen as PICPA Outstanding Teacher

The Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) recognized Wilfredo Baltazar of the Accounting Department as one of the three outstanding accounting teachers of the year. The awarding ceremony was held during the PICPA Annual National Convention on November 25-29 at the EXPO Pilipino, Clark, Pampanga.

The competition consisted of an elimination round which required faculty members to submit individual technical papers on any accounting-related topic. Baltazar’s technical paper, titled “Securities Fraud in the Philippines,” was chosen along with nine other finalists from all over the country. The top three accounting teachers were then selected by way of a microteaching demonstration held during the annual convention.

Baltazar, who teaches classes on auditing and finance, lectured on the audit of cash. He was recognized for his mastery of the subject matter and teaching strategy. The top three outstanding accounting teachers each received a plaque of recognition and a cash prize of PhP 80,000.

The awarding ceremonies capped the first nationwide search for the PICPA Accounting Teachers of the Year, a maiden undertaking of the Technical Affairs cluster and the four sectoral councils of the organization.
