Nexia TS Sponsors SMU-IIAS Internal Audit Case Challenge 2014

November 2014

 

Nexia TS is pleased to announce its participation as Platinum Sponsor for the SMU-IIAS Internal Audit Case Challenge 2014. In collaboration with the Institute of Internal Auditors Singapore (IIAS), the inaugural event was organised at the Singapore Management University (SMU) on 18 October 2014 to allow tertiary students of all faculties to get a glimpse of the practice of the internal audit world and the importance of corporate governance through a series of case questions and activities. The event drew a strong turn out of 23 participating teams from the local universities and polytechnics.

 

 

Our Directors, Mr Chin Chee Choon and Mr Gary Ng, had officiated as the Case Challenge Judges for both the semi-finals and the final round of which Singapore Management University clinched the 1st, 3rd and 4th positions while Nanyang Technological University was awarded the 2nd position.

 

About SMU-IIAS Internal Audit Case Challenge:

The SMU-IIAS Internal Audit Case Challenge event is the first to focus on the practice of internal audit. Collaborating with the IIAS, the case challenge aims to drive a deeper understanding of: (1) the daily work of an internal auditor, (2) tools and skill sets required and (3) promoting the work of an internal auditor as an exciting and rewarding career. The case challenge is open to all students, including non-accounting students, from both the three local universities (NTU, NUS, SMU) and the five polytechnics (SP, NP, NYP, TP, RP).  For more details, visit www.iia.org.sg.
