About a hundred participants from the almost 200 individuals who earlier signified their interests have joined the one-day Business Plan Making Seminar held over the weekend at the University of San Carlos-Main Campus.
The participants were divided into three groups with each group mentored by a team of faculty from the USC-College of Commerce. The mentors included the teams headed by Dr. Beth Villarin, Dr. Grace Lape and Mr. Jun Dedamo.
The participants are lectured briefly about Marketing, Operations, Finance, and Management in preparation for the actual drafting of a business plan.
Listen here for the opening program of the Business Plan Making seminar and the actual classroom lecture during the seminar.
