UP ABAM’s Behind The Spotlight: An ACLE on Celebrity Entrepreneurs




UP Association of Business Administration Major proudly presents Behind the Spotlight, an Alternative Classroom Learning Experience (ACLE) on Celebrity Entrepreneurs to be held on October 15, 2015 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Room 301 Virata School of Business.


Entrepreneurship is an emerging career path for Filipinos. Even television personalities start their own businesses when the lights have turned off and the camera stopped rolling. Beyond our tv screen, they put on their entrepreneurs’ hats and give their passion for this craft.

This would be an interesting time to hear their stories and in one way inspire us to translate our passion and interests into successful business ventures.
