The AmCham Business Leadership Program (BLP) seeks to give Filipino students a chance at an unprecedented level of access and interaction with the top companies and executives in the Philippines so that they gain a better understanding of the role of business in national development and a wider perspective of key global business and economic issues in the hopes this knowledge will help them in their future endeavors.

Originally called The Business Orientation Program (BOP), it initially started as a clone of a similar program convened by the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. The program was initiated with the participation of only three schools – Ateneo, de la Salle, and UP Diliman. The program later was expanded to include students from universities and colleges throughout the country, to broaden the more diverse participation and seek out the “Best of the Best” students in each university.

Deadline for registration is extended until January 31, 2023
