Friday, May 8, 2015

Time passes so quickly and I still remember when I attended the grand finale of the Maybank Go Ahead Challenge last year. I'm proud to announce that the challenge is back again, and it will be even bigger and more exciting this time around Calling all fresh graduates from any course, this is your golden opportunity to get a fast-track pass in the industry!

Maybank GO Ahead Challenge

MGAC is Maybank's award-winning talent search and recruitment competition where they are searching for the brightest and best young minds from 14 countries across the world to have the chance at a high-flying career in the banking and financial services industry. The competition is an action-packed, multi-disciplinary fusion of business case study, mental and physical challenges. For past years, it has been a business-oriented competition and this year is definitely an exception because they have gone beyond towards  'international case' challenge! This time, it is #morethanachallenge!

"The inaugural MGAC in 2012 was opened to six countries, this year it is expanding to 14 countries including UK and US. The number of nationalities participating in the various stages grew from 10 in 2012, to 20 nationalities last year. This year we expect to have over 20 nationalities. Given that Maybank Group has a larger presence in the Asian region and it is the region where we have a niche leadership, MGAC continues to be opened to countries in ASEAN and the rest of Asia. "
