Last week was one of my busiest since I entered graduate school last June 2008. Our team finished the first deliverable for our technology marketing and commercialization class. We prepared the paper and presentation material simultaneously in more than 1 week. We did an industry analysis on the semiconductor and electronics industry in the Philippines. The industry we’ve chosen is in perfect timing because aside from garments, semicon and electronics will experience greater impacts of the worsening global economy. In fact, Intel announced that their chip manufacturing plant in the country will shut down this year. Texas Instruments in Bagiuo City, on the other hand, trimmed down its employees. We presented our findings last Jan23rd and submitted the paper last Friday. Right now, we’re preparing for the second paper, a management case of a local semicon company. Good luck to the upcoming brainstorming sessions.
By the way, the UP Technology Management Center (TMC) is presently accepting applications to its Master of Technology Management (MTM) program for the coming schoolyear (2009-2010). The deadline for submitting all application requirements is on March 5, 2009. The entrance examination will be held on March 8, 2009. Visit http://www.tmc.upd.edu.ph/ for more information.
I regret that I did not make it on a coffee date with fellow bloggers last weekend. I hope I could join them next time…
Home improvement underway… The construction works have also caused additional pressure. I am just looking forward it’ll be completed by end of this month, if Mr. Wallet will still allow us hehe.
So much for ranting here… Bye-bye, have a fruitful week to you all…
