TO FACILITATE the registration of business names and the getting of business permits, the Institute’s Negosyo Center partnered with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Iligan to provide a venue where interested persons can get helpful information on the matter.
The forum on Business Name Registration and Business Permit that was held in August at the iDEYA: Center for Technopreneurship and Innovation attracted entrepreneurs from all over the Visayas and Mindanao.
Mrs. Ara Arain Amar Garay, Trade and Industry Development Specialist, gave an insight about the Business Name Registration and other agencies involved.
She also discussed the two ways of registering a business. The first one was through the traditional way and the second one was online, which was implemented on May 20.
Mrs. Judith Surmion, Business Permit Licensing Officer from the City Mayor’s Office, tackled the business process involving permits and licenses.
As part of the said forum, the entrepreneurs asked questions regarding certain issues and how to help them excel in the business world.
Prof. Joana Marie C. Edera of the College of Business Administration and Accountancy and the faculty coordinator for the Institute’s Negosyo Center helped organize the forum.

MSU-IIT’s contribution to Culture, Art, and Performance Studies has taken off with three successive events in four days. Participating were over 300 teachers, practitioners, and students conversing on “evolving a Philippine School-of-Thought”.
Three colloquiums that marked the auspicious progress of our Culture and Arts Studies, the only one in the country today, gauge the state of disciplines envisioned by the Program.
First was the seminar on “Arts Administration in the Philippine Context” opening the series last March 8. Arts Manager Carmencita Jasareno-Bernardo of the Cultural Exchange Department, Cultural Center of the Philippines, lectured and facilitated a workshop on strategies on how art and cultural resources may be managed.
In the second day on March 9, seven graduate students presented papers using their innovative methodologies that described the form and directions the pedagogy and their productions will take. Performance specialist Dr. Jazmin Llana, Ph.D, Associate Professor of De La Salle University and alumna of the Aberystwyth University keynoted the forum discussing the possibility of a Philippine school-of-thought.
Both Bernardo and Llana are with the faculty of the Studies.
U.P. Diliman through its Office for Initiatives for Culture and the Arts (OICA) co-hosted the third event on March 10 and 11. Titled “Theatre and Cultural Performances in the Philippines (Focus on Mindanao), the UP team also presented its large-scale project “Digital Humanities” to involve the MSU-IIT in gathering all possible information through digital media in these disciplines.
The third forum had theatre specialist Dr. S. Anril P. Tiatco, Ph.D (“Performance in the Philippines”), UP Dean Amihan B. Ramolete, Ph.D (“Puppetry in the Philippines”), Dr. Christine Godinez-Ortega, DFA (“Mindanao Epics”), Prof. Hobart P. Savior, MA (“Dramaturgy in Contemporary Mindanao Theatre”), and the Studies Founder Dr. Steven P.C. Fernandez, DFA (“Performing Arts in Mindanao”).
Distinguished panel members who critiqued the proposals were Dr. Nelia Balgoa, DHS, and Dr. Victor Sugbo, Ph.D.
Since its launch in August 2015 (with endowment from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts), the program has taken the first steps in establishing an inter-discipline taking off from paradigms of European and American academic and performance studies centers. It sets directions for Philippine scholarship, production, and the management of cultural-performance resources.
Last year, the MSU-IIT Board of Regents approved the establishment of the Culture and Arts Studies Center with Fernandez as Founding Director. The Center’s goal is to establish a hub for Culture, Performance, and Arts Studies situating such initiatives in locations where intersecting cultures make these studies dynamic.
Contributing resources for the establishment of this program are the Integrated Performing Arts Guild – Artists Resource Management, Inc., Dept. of English, School of Graduate Studies, Cultural Development Office, and the NCCA. – Contributed news
