llied Business Department Chair Alice Valerio served as coach to students Catherine Ann Dizon, Gregor Christopher Vizcayda, Ivan RJ Ramosa and John David De La Cruz as they completed their paper “Productivity Implications of Unionization and Corporate Governance: Evidence From Selected Garment Companies in Cavite.” The paper was prejudged at De La Salle University and Asian Development Bank where they got a rating of 96 percent.
DLSU-D’s premier students also made waves internationally as they passed the paper screening conducted by the National Youth Commission (NYC) officials and were chosen to represent the country as student ambassadors to the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths Programme (JENESYS) 2010 on Apr. 18-29 for Batch 1 and May 9-20 for Batch 2. The proud Lasallians are Charlotte Gay Villarin (Information Technology), Gianfranco Figueroa (Communication Arts), Joseph Kevin Lester Limeta (Journalism), John Jefferson Besa (Human Biology) and Erika Grace Velasco (Political Science).
Together with other Filipino student ambassadors, they will form a delegation bound for Japan for a 10-day cultural exchange visit. Under the JENESYS Programme, they will deepen their understanding of Japan by exchanging views with Japanese youths during school visits and through home stays with Japanese families to develop an understanding, bonding and goodwill.
The JENESYS Programme is a project set by the Japanese Government through the Japan Information and Culture Center, in cooperation with the NYC of the Philippines and the Japan International Cooperation Center.
