Student Testimonials

"The most rewarding aspect of my stint as an Accounts Intern at N-F Mechanical & Engineering is the skills I picked up outside the classroom. My internship has increased my employability and gave me a clearer idea of my preferred career path." (2016)

"My internship at Minsheng Securities in China enhanced my personal development and competency. As an Accounts Intern, I assisted an experienced professional accountant and gained deeper understanding on how accounting works in both fi nancial reporting and capital management. This internship was a good platform to apply what I have learnt in class and gain hands-on practice." (2016)
