UA&P Industrial Economic students Ethan Gabriel Lee, Josh Cody Ong, and Scott Gabriel Tiamson competed among a total of 192 teams from across the Asia Pacific and was the only team from the Philippines to make it to the regional finals, marking the country’s first-ever regional win in the competition.

Launched in 2020 in Singapore, the Citi TTS case competition includes competitors from Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, India, and Thailand.

The competition gives university students an opportunity to showcase their strategic and innovative ideas that can help support Citi’s TTS business in the digital economy.

Each team presented their case studies to a panel of Citi’s regional country heads and senior management representatives.
