The ICAEW was represented by Senior Executive for Student Recruitment & Marketing, Ethan Neo, and Business Development Manager Abdul Rahman Ali, from the Malaysia regional office in Kuala Lumpur. They shared about ICAEW’s leadership role in the field of accountancy, finance and business; how to become a member of the professional body and earn the right to be called a Chartered Accountant; and the benefits of being a ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

Joining the speakers to share his experiences of being a member of ICAEW was Mohd Junaidy Abdul Mutalib, Senior General Manager for Group Finance at Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad.

The University organised this career talk for its ODL Accounting degree students who shall qualify to become a Chartered Accountant after their graduation. Anyone seeking to practise in Malaysia must obtain the Chartered Accountant qualification, as required under the Accountants Act 1967. They must pass either the Qualifying Examination of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants or the exams of scheduled bodies, including ICAEW, and undergo chambering.

WOU graduates will enjoy credit exemptions to sit for the qualifying exams as its Bachelor of Business (Hons) in Accounting programme – offered both via part-time and full-time study – is recognised by ICAEW. The ICAEW examinations are open book exams which integrates the understanding and application of theory to the workplace throughout training.

Currently 20,000 students globally are studying for the ICAEW qualification. ICAEW is a professional membership organisation, supporting over 143,000 chartered accountants around the world.
