The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

PU­VEN­DRAN Sel­varaja of Sun­way TES Cen­tre for Ac­coun­tancy Ex­cel­lence (CAE) did the coun­try proud with top marks in the global As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants (ACA) ex­am­i­na­tions, achiev­ing the best and high­est re­sults of all stu­dents from around the world.

The ex­am­i­na­tions are part of the highly re­garded In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales (ICAEW) Char­tered Ac­coun­tant qual­i­fi­ca­tion, held by over 147,000 pro­fes­sion­als across more than 160 coun­tries world­wide.

Gain­ing the ACA proves a can­di­date has demon­strated the high­est tech­ni­cal skills and eth­i­cal stan­dards.

Pu­ven­dran is the 12th Malaysian stu­dent to have won an in­ter­na­tional ICAEW prize. He was awarded the Joint First Plac­ing and the Watts Prize, Pro­fes­sional Stage Or­der of Merit with his score of 97% in the Au­dit and As­sur­ance Exam in the De­cem­ber 2016 sit­ting. The prize is given to a can­di­date who has achieved the high­est marks in the pro­fes­sional stage pa­pers.

“This out­stand­ing achieve­ment of Pu­ven­dran’s demon­strates the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of non-grad­u­ate stu­dents who have de­cided to take an early start in their ca­reers,” said Sun­way Col­lege ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor

Teo Ee Sing.

“Nur­tur­ing lo­cal tal­ents like Pu­ven­dran is essen­tial not only to a lead­ing pro­fes­sional In­sti­tu­tion like Sun­way TES CAE, but also to sup­port our coun­try’s ef­fort to be­come a high in­come na­tion through the devel­op­ment of hu­man cap­i­tal. As the re­gion con­tin­ues its eco­nomic boom, we are in need of world-class tal­ents who can con­trib­ute to our coun­try's suc­cess.”

This achieve­ment high­lights the in­cred­i­ble po­ten­tial of Malaysian stu­dents and the high stan­dards of qual­ity pro­fes­sional ac­count­ing and fi­nan­cial pro­grammes pro­vided at Sun­way TES CAE, a lead­ing pro­fes­sional ac­coun­tancy provider in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion.

Stu­dents at Sun­way TES CAE have the ad­van­tage of an ex­pe­ri­enced and ded­i­cated aca­demic team com­mit­ted to nur­tur­ing stu­dents who are of the high­est aca­demic stan­dards in ac­count­ing.

Sun­way TES CAE head of pro­gramme (ICAEW) Theresa Soh said, “The achieve­ments of Malaysians like Pu­ven­dran and our other prize win­ners high­light the high cal­i­bre of train­ing and job op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able lo­cally. It is a tes­ta­ment that our peo­ple need not go abroad to taste suc­cess at a global level.

“Sun­way TES CAE is ac­tively de­vel­op­ing a strong strate­gic al­liance with the ac­coun­tancy sec­tor to de­velop wide strate­gies to en­sure Malaysians have ex­cel­lent ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties lo­cally and Pu­ven­dran’s achieve­ment high­lights the high stan­dards of our lo­cal ac­coun­tancy firms.”

For Pu­ven­dran, what he re­mem­bers most of his time at Sun­way TES CAE is the time spent with his lec­tur­ers.

For him, his lec­tur­ers were more like friends and he could share any­thing with them.

He cited that the valu­able learn­ing and knowl­edge gained in ICAEW pro­gramme and the ACA has taught him to an­a­lyse and solve is­sues, essen­tial skills re­quired in the busi­ness and fi­nance sec­tor.
