KUCHING, 3 October 2019 – ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) Malaysia’s nationwide ACCA ‘a.c.t.’ Tour continued connecting stakeholders in Kuching, ranging from students, affiliates, members, employers and Approved Learning Partners.
The ACCA ‘a.c.t.’ Tour is an initiative that will have ACCA Malaysia visiting Johor Bahru, Penang, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu to provide direct support while connecting with and obtaining feedback from stakeholders who are based outside Klang Valley. The maiden ACCA ‘a.c.t’ Tour in 2018 registered 1,500 attendees across six cities in Malaysia who were updated, connected and inspired.
The ACCA ‘a.c.t.’ Tour 2019 has added a new dedicated panel session since its installation last year, featuring employers from PwC, Crowe and KPMG discussing traits and skillsets that are in demand where mini career fairs were set up for students and affiliates to submit resumes.
Kuching-based employers who will be participating in the mini career fair include Ernst & Young, Crowe, Deloitte, KPMG, PwC and UHY. The mini career fair provides a profession-specific platform for future accountants to gain firsthand information from potential employers on requirements and chart their professional careers.
“This ‘a.c.t.’ Tour which includes members, affiliates students and employers throughout the nation, engages them in the cities where they are in, serving as an avenue to connect future accountants with Approved Employers, Approved Learning Partners (ALPs) and other stakeholders.
It also enables us to provide direct update on the developments within ACCA. This nationwide tour helps us support our students and members better in developing the accounting profession. I believe the strength of ACCA’s connections and partnerships within Malaysia and globally can help our students, affiliates and members soar to greater heights in their professional careers.” said ACCA Malaysia Country Head, Edward Ling.
Malaysia is the third largest network for ACCA globally. This event is part of a series of ACCA outreach programmes to connect with its 36,000 students, close to 15,000 members, over 7,500 affiliates, 51 university partners, 180 Approved Employers and 22 Approved Learning Partners.
