The Junior Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (JPIA) of USJ-R was awarded as “Outstanding Local Chapter for School year 2016-2017” during the 34th Annual National Convention of Accounting students held in summer this year at Baguio City.
This national distinction is conferred on a local chapter which has demonstrated exemplary performance in both academic and non-academic activities that promote the welfare of accounting students.
The award was given by the national federation of JPIA and the P & A Grant Thornton, one of the leading auditing firms in the country today.
