Every successful creative brand and business requires top-notch talents who are business-savvy and have the management and financial know-how. Our distinct approach to teaching the Accountancy and Business Management (ABM) strand of Senior High School (SHS) at SoFA Design Institute will equip aspiring creative entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to manage and run day-to-day operations of enterprises — whether it be their own or a multinational firm.
Unlike the traditional approach to learning ABM, students of our ABM track will be trained in subjects such as Accountancy, Statistics, and Business Mathematics with the human customer and professional in mind. Our ABM students, on top of learning about business trends and numbers, will master design thinking, communication, and socialization as the fundamental pillars of their practice through our Design Studio classes and our range of design electives. In keeping with our distinct approach to teaching design, which we coin the “SoFA Method”, our ABM track marries creativity with mathematical application and business sense to prepare the best business professionals of tomorrow.
Our curriculum, much like our other SHS stands, will prioritize subject integration that will allow for minor subjects such as Physical Education and the Sciences to take on a more meaningful role in our students’ learning journey. This way, learning is maximized while students’ work load is minimized.
Students who select this route will be prepared for colorful careers as managers, accountants, and business owners capable of creating exceptional and purposeful brands that can move societies and economies of tomorrow forward.
With the SoFA Method, our program is delivered in a pioneering modular format, unique to SoFA SHS. To increase student engagement and concentration, term subjects are delivered in two separate modules. With only 5 - 6 subject areas to concentrate on for each module, instead of the usual 10 - 12 subjects in the traditional curricular format, SoFA students are able to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight through this distilled quick-fire format. With fewer subjects to focus on at any one time, students are able to perform to the best of their ability, while affording our faculty the capability to hone their skills further at a more personalized level.
With each class section kept to only a maximum of 15 students, we ensure the highest level of quality in lesson delivery and assessment.
For S.Y. 2022-2023, this program will be delivered through the SoFA C.R.E.A.T.E. (Collaborative Remote Experience through Art and Transformative Education) Program.
