Woohoo! I couldn't be more excited for the Maybank GO Ahead Challenge that is coming this August. If you haven't heard of it yet, MGAC is an international business case competition that challenges your intellect, stretches your creativity and unleashes your true potential.
The challenge is open to all penultimate or final year university students; even fresh graduates with less than 2 years of experience, regardless of field of study. If you're from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and United States of America, then you're welcomed to join MGAC.
Sounds academic? No, definitely it is not! In fact, MGAC is an exciting blend of The Amazing Race, Fear Factor, The Apprentice, MasterChef and various reality programs that bring you fun, experience and new friends.
I personally think it is a great global platform for aspiring young talents to go beyond their boundaries and challenge themselves outside the comfort zones. Don't need to prepare yourself, just accept the challenge!
During the press conference, I learn that the competition is already in its third season and this year Maybank has received a 50% increase of applications compared to last year. If you're keen to sign up, please do so before 30 April 2014!
We were then ushered to the cinema hall for the video teaser of MGAC 2014.
The video showcased plenty of fun activities done by the participants from previous years, including visiting old folks' home, dancing, debating and more. You can watch the video from Maybank Youtube channel too :)
Puan Nora Abdul Manaf, the Group Chief Human Capital Officer, spoke during the launch.
MGAC 2014 officiating ceremony was witnessed by Maybank Islamic Berhad CEO, Muzaffar Hisham, Maybank Group Chief Technology Officer, Geoff Stecyk, Group Chief, Human Capital Officer, Nora Abdul Manaf, Maybank Group Chief Risk Officer, Dr John Lee and Maybank Head of Group Talent Sourcing & Development, Chen Fong Tuan
