Debating Excellence on Financial Knowledge
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin
As students under the School of Accounting & Finance, we are pleased to share that Zhiyun Chia, Nicholas Lim and Syed Kamil demonstrated sound financial knowledge at the Bursa Malaysia National Investment Debate Challenge held recently, in which the team walked away with the 2nd Runner Up prize.
Organised by Bursa Malaysia, the challenge was hosted at APU under the coordination of the School of Accounting & Finance and our students of the Bursa Young Investor Club and Debate Society. The Challenge saw 16 teams from 12 universities nationwide, battling through several rounds and covering a wide spectrum of interesting topics related to the investment and the capital market.
At the Challenge, we witnessed interesting debates and discussions on financial knowledge; this is in line with the aim of the competition, which was to stimulate interest, discussion and research amongst tertiary students, in order to equip them with knowledge on the capital market and to nurture a solid base of investors in the next generation. We saw the potentials of future investors of the world, and we are glad to participate in this effort in collaboration with Bursa Malaysia!
CONGRATULATIONS to APU Team A; we look forward to hosting more events and witnessing more of our students’ victory!
