The UP Agribusiness Society (UP ABS/Bisok), in partnership with UPLB Department of Agribusiness Management and Entrepreneurship (DAME) and ROMARCOM Academy, launches the Youth Leaders of Agribusiness Congress (YLAC) 2023.  YLAC 2023 is a 3-day on-site intercollegiate business case competition which is aligned with the theme: “YIELD in Agribusiness 2023: Youth Involvement and Engagement for Limitless Development in Agribusiness” to be held at the University of the Philippines Los Baños on May 31 – June 2, 2023.

This competition aims to provide an avenue for agribusiness students and other related courses to showcase their analytical and conceptualizing skills in cultivating a progressive agribusiness sector. Finalists will be exposed to various supplementary workshops and leadership training to guarantee that they possess the necessary knowledge and skills for the analysis of a case, equipping them to be the next prime-movers of the agribusiness sector.

The key partner company will provide a real-life business case to the participants of the business case competition, who will then use it to create a Presentation Deck. Qualified teams will then proceed to the on-site semifinals where they will present their submissions. The top performing teams will advance to the grand finals, which will be preceded by a series of training sessions and workshops that will be held the day before the finals to equip the grand finalists with the necessary knowledge and skills for a case analysis.
