UP Business School alumni reunite with alma mater


MANILA, Philippines–The University of the Philippines Virata School of Business (UP VSB), formerly the UP College of Business Administration, holds its traditional alumni homecoming on December 7, 2019, in a new venue inside the UP campus, the Promenade.


The venue is located some short distance away from the front of the Main Library with access from the Palma Hall parking area.


The Promenade provides a wonderful venue for the homecoming since this is the newly constructed park with a grand plaza and greenery full of trees and flowers that can accommodate a greater number of our VSB community.


The school expects more than 300 alumni, with their families and guests are also expected to come.


This year’s homecoming will have a fiesta motif.


The VSB alumni will have a grand event as they go fiesta amidst the folk song of “Liron Liron sinta” and other favorite songs that are popular now and in the not so distant past.


Liron is used instead of the original name of Leron for this event. Upon entering the venue, there will be a festive drum and bugle band and colourful banderitas hanging in poles to welcome the guests.


The alumni can spend time visiting the many food stalls, tiangge and gift shops, and game booths situated throughout the Promenade fiesta park.


There will be tents selling UP VSB souvenir items and exhibiting various alumni corporate products and services.


The formal program will recognize the honoree classes consisting of Batch ’59 (Diamond), Batch ’64 (Emerald) , Batch ’69 (Golden), Batch ’74 (Sapphire),

Batch ’79 (Ruby), Batch ’84 (Coral), Batch ’89 (Pearl), Batch ’94 (Silver), Batch ’99, Batch ’09, Batch ’04 and Batch ’14.


The school will also honor the Distinguished Alumni Awardees for the year. The VSB will recognize the accomplishment of the Accountancy Class of 1989 for its garnering the Top Performing School for the recently concluded Certified Public Accountant Examination.


Alumni of the VSB are enjoined to confirm their attendance with Marielle Cruz (email: [email protected] Tel. No 89297991); Anna Pariñas (email: [email protected] Cel. No 09662645603); or contacting your respective batch representatives.


The UP Business school alumni will surely enjoy their homecoming during this season to be jolly.
