Singapore, 10 July 2017 – The firm sends its congratulations to the winners of the recently concluded Audit & Accounting Challenge 2017 event, organised by the NTU Accounting and Business Club on 24 June 2017. This annual student event saw about 400 students coming together to pit their audit and accounting skills against their peers in a nation-wide competition.
As with previous years, the latest Audit & Accounting Challenge event was well-represented by a good mix of students from tertiary institutions, local universities and polytechnics, as evident from its participation make up. Through this platform, participants will be able to test their technical knowledge, analytical and reasoning skills with some of the best minds from each academic institution. This competition also serves as a good networking platform which allows participants to exchange ideas with industry players, thereby broadening their business skills beyond the classroom.
Nexia TS participated as a sponsor in the mid-tier accounting firm category, supporting the event in its CSR objectives to contribute back to the education scene.
About The Audit & Accounting Challenge:
The Audit & Accounting Challenge (“AAC”) 2017 is an annual nation-wide audit and accounting competition hosted by the Nanyang Business School Auditing and Assurance Team (NAAT) of Nanyang Technological University. It was first held in 2010. The AAC aims to provide tertiary accountancy students with a platform to pit their audit and accounting knowledge against one another. Through the competition, we aim to generate greater interest in audit and accounting and also create greater awareness of pertinent audit and accounting issues.
On this platform, participants can test their knowledge, analytical and reasoning skills. This competition also serves as a good network, which allows participants to exchange ideas with industry players. Having the opportunity to pit their skills against peers from the same schools and from other schools, the participants all aim to bring glory to their school.
