FBE Students Bag Six Prizes in ACCA Hong Kong Business Competition
Date: 03 February, 2018
The annual ACCA Hong Kong Business Competition equips accounting and business students with accounting, business analysis and communication skills employers demand.
The Competition this year was themed 'Social Intelligence - from local excellence to global vision'. Two social enterprises that have global or regional footprint are expanding their presence into Hong Kong. Contesting students were required to pick one out of the two social enterprise case studies, and develop a business proposal to optimise their business operations in Hong Kong. Finalists presented their proposals to the competition’s vetting committee, including Social Enterprise Business Centre representatives.
To help students prepare for the challenge, ACCA-qualified accounting professional acted as coaches for the Top 20 teams. A series of workshops were also provided to polish students’ business analytical, proposal writing, communication and presentation skills.
