Francis Matthew Obligacion

A junior from the UST Alfredo M. Velayo College of Accountancy won second place in the 22nd Search for Outstanding Accounting Student held on May 29 via Zoom. 

Francis Matthew Obligacion competed against  25 finalists who went through a series of written and oral examinations.

Obligacion was among the six Thomasians chosen to represent the University. UST’s Ephraim Salvador also made it to the top 25.

“We actually had to do our preparations while managing our other academic requirements and commitments. Our passionate professors really helped us in this regard because the things they had taught us during this and the past semesters were very instrumental,” Obligacion told the Varsitarian.

Program chair Albert Cruz said the University’s representatives were selected based on their general weighted average and assessments of other faculty members.

Warren Hojas of the University of Visayas topped the search.

The competition was hosted by the P&A Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Association of Certified Public Accountants in Commerce and Industry and the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

The Search for Outstanding Accounting Students of the Philippines is an annual nationwide competition that aims to recognize the best accounting students in the country.
