Asst Vice President, Sales
Global Payments and Cash Management,
HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad
Year of Graduation:  2011

Taylor's World Class Scholarship Recipient

Being financially constraint, Taylor's World Class Scholarship (TWCS) gracefully aided my pursuit for tertiary education. With that in mind, indirectly TWCS has motivated me to do my best in learning from the experience yet helpful lecturers. The opportunity to undergo internships with well-established companies such as HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad has provided me not only with deep insight of the working environment but also expanded my network of people. Thanks to TWCS and the doors it opens, now I am proudly a Management Trainee in HSBC Bank.

What I have learnt throughout my journey so far that does not only apply in starting your own business but can be applied in general, is that opportunities don't come by easily; and if one should ever come your way, grab it and give it a go. You will never know until you try! should you face failure, perservere, learn from your mistakes and start again.

Chief Financial Officer
Dongguan Plastic Manufacturing PLC

I began my career as an auditor for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in Sydney. I was posted to Hong Kong two years later. It's been a remarkable journey so far and thanks to Taylor's Business School for shaping my future.

Executive, Corporate Finance
CIMB Investment Bank Berhad

Year of Graduation:  2009

I studied accounting and finance at university as I believe that this area of study is highly relevant in all businesses. Looking back, university has prepared me well for the graduate position as I have developed a good head for numbers through formal tertiary education and participation in business competitions. Having said that, the things I learnt at university can only be applied towards some of the many facets of my job; hence it is important to be able to learn quickly on-the-job.


Audit Associate, KPMG
Year of Graduation: 2009

I must say that I am very proud of the programme I’ve chosen as it made me an all rounder; a public speaker, an event organizer, a compassionate person and last but not least someone knowledgeable in the area of accounting and finance.

Graduating from Taylor’s was only the beginning to a brighter future as I continued to further my studies part-time with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and start on my career path with KPMG as an audit associate.


Radio Announcer, 98.8FM
Year of Graduation: 2001

I graduated with a Bachelor of Business majoring in Economics & Finance. Since then, I had made one of the biggest decisions of my life to move away from a typical 9-5 job in the finance world to become a star in 98.8FM. I host the 6-10am programme known as the "Oriental Rice Bowl" together with partners – Sam and Chan Fong.

Personally, I believe that any job can be pursued with the right attitude, dedication and a lot of hard work. The way I see it, the paper qualification gets you through the interviewer's door. Beyond that point, it's all up to you to create a good first impression by having the right attitude, decent communication skills and determination.
