Maximising The Potential Of The Younger Generation

Four students from the Taylor’s University will be representing Malaysia at the HSBC/ Hong Kong University (HKU) Asia Pacific Business Case Competition 2019 to be held in Hong Kong from 31 May – 6 June 2019. Under the mentorship of Dr. Nurlida Ismail, Senior Lecturer of Taylor’s Business School, students John Ng Chee En, James Chai Wei Ren, Janice Chai Xin Hui and Poh Song Yang from Taylor’s University will be competing against 23 top universities from 19 countries.

The students qualified for the regional challenge in Hong Kong after emerging as Champions of the HSBC Malaysia Business Case Competition 2019, organized by Enactus Malaysia and funded by HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad. The competition is designed to serve as a platform for Malaysian undergraduates to enhance and apply their business knowledge and skills to real life business scenarios.

Arsaalan Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer HSBC Amanah said, “Using business cases as a learning tool enables our local undergraduates to develop their analytical thinking, creativity, innovation and enhance their communication skills which are essential elements to increase their employability. By creating a platform that encourages employment-focused skills development in the community, HSBC aims to maximise the potential of the younger generation while enabling them to make valuable contributions to both the local society and the wider global economy.”
James Chai Wei Ren, said, “The competition is different from other business competitions he joined before. The HSBC Malaysia Business Case Competition really pushed me out of my comfort zone. This experience has broadened my perspective on business cases and has allowed me to develop essential skills for the working world.”

The HSBC Malaysia Business Case Competition 2019 saw participation of 96 undergraduates from 19 business schools. The Taylor’s University won the local competition and the runners-up were teams from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Multimedia University and University of Nottingham Malaysia will be measured by UKM through pre and post survey questions.
