The Newly Launched Southville Financial Lab
Southville Financial Lab is inspired by the Capital Market Learning Center (CMLC) which is the brainchild of Southville Global Education Network (SGEN) from the joint endeavors of Dr. Genevieve Ledesma – Tan and Dr. Rhoderick Santos, in partnership with the Financial Executives (FINEX) Institute of the Philippines, the Rotary Club of Makati Salcedo, and Vulture Private Equity Unlimited, Inc. making Southville the first school in the Philippines, south of Manila, to integrate an online stock trading facility.
Southville Financial Lab is one of Southville’s prime facilities such as the Business Hub for the College of Business, the Media Center, the Bistro Lima, the Mini Theater, and the Capital Market Learning Center in SISFU among others to provide students a quality learning experience, making Southville a recipient of various awards and accreditation such as the Philippine Quality Award, ISO 9001:2015, and IiP Gold to name a few.
