Under its ‘Future Talents Program,’ Aboitiz invites all qualified students in the tertiary level to participate in the Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit (AFLBS), its curriculum-based On-the-Job Training Program, and apply for its scholarship or cadetship program.

These programs over the years have helped hundreds of interns and scholars across the group to prepare students for life after college while honing their business and leadership skills.

The company announced the formal opening of the Aboitiz College Scholarship Program (ACSP) earlier this year, which provides financial assistance that is renewable every semester, provided the scholar maintains the 85% General Point Average or its equivalent.

The scholarship is open to full-time incoming first to fourth year college students pursuing a degree in Accountancy, Business / Management, IT, Psychology, Engineering, or Pre-Law. Deadline of application is April 6, 2015.

Last year, Aboitiz also opened its Legal Scholarship Program to students of the UP College of Law from second to fourth year for the regular program, or second to fifth year for the evening program.

The On-the-Job Training Program, on the other hand, equips students with the necessary skills and right work attitude through a curriculum-based training experience in preparation for their journey to the actual work environment.

Now on its 10th year, the Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit brings together close to a hundred promising college students from all over the country for two days to educate them on leadership and management concepts and how these are concretized in a corporate environment. Since its launch, the total of number of AFLBS alumni has reached 810 participants. The AFLBS will be this coming November in Cebu City. Aboitiz Group Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer Txabi Aboitiz said the company’s student programs have been developed to help the country’s future leaders establish careers that would contribute to nation-building.

“It’s not only about preparing them for the corporate world. By forging the leaders of today, we are guaranteed with a better tomorrow,” he said, referring to the country’s ‘best and the brightest’ – working scholars, varsity athletes, honor students, and organization leaders who participate in the annual AFLBS. 

To complement these initiatives, the company has also ventured into curricular and co-curricular initiatives in collaboration with the academe; some of which have been to conduct speaking engagements with students such as the recently launched “Family Business Talk” with the Ateneo Family Business Development Council to give aspiring entrepreneurs a glimpse of the makings of a successful family-run business and ‘Career Talk’ for Engineers with the University of the Philippines (UP). A Power 101 Module was also cascaded in Mapua Institute of Technology and De La Salle University Manila educating future engineers about commercial power.

Meanwhile, Aboitiz food subsidiary Pilmico will organize its first ever Junior Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science Congress in August. This event aims to equip the delegates with practical and applied knowledge on animal production, management and nutrition in the pillars of swine, poultry, and gamefowl.

All Aboitiz Future Talents Program are supported by Aboitiz subsidiaries from the power generation, distribution, banking, food, and land, and its corporate social responsibility arm Aboitiz Foundation.
