Asia Pacific University (APU) students achieves success in the DELOITTE TAX CHALLENGE 2013!

The Deloitte Tax Challenge is an annual National-level competition organized for undergraduates to test their knowledge in taxation and to improve their soft skills especially in writing, speaking and presentation. APU has participated in this competition since 2010, through the School of Accounting, Finance and Quantitative Studies (SAFIQS). While Asia Pacific University‘s teams had performed credibly in the past, we had not previously reached the Finals.

This year’s competition was held in October and November 2013, and 7 teams from SAFIQS represented APU, among 116 teams from Public and Private Universities and Colleges all over Malaysia.

Out of the 116 teams, only the top 5 teams were selected for the Finals.  APU’s team achieved a major success when they were chosen as one of the 5 Finalists for the first time ever!

The Finals of the competition were held at OneWorld Hotel Petaling Jaya. After a very tense and hard-fought competition, we are very proud to announce that APU’s team ended up as the First Runners Up, losing out narrowly only to UiTM (Universiti Teknologi Mara).

What is particularly notable is that Asia Pacific University was the highest placed Private Institution in the competition, beating out

traditional and well established powerhouses (both public and private) who had regularly won in the past. This is a major achievement indeed for SAFIQS and APU, relative newcomers in the field of Accounting and Finance, and it certainly bodes well for the progress that the School has made since its inception in 2009.

The team received their award from Mr Tan Theng Hooi, Deloitte’s Country Managing Partner and Mr Yee Wing Peng, Deloitte’s Country Tax Leader.

The winning students from Asia Pacific University are Wong Li Kien, Wong Jo Anne, Jennifer Erwin and Key Tho Ping.
