Taking their case to Hong Kong


THE team from Taylor’s University has emerged tops at the inaugural HSBC Malaysia Business Case Competition.

Besides winning RM15,000, the team comprising Alexis Ang Wei Zhong, Calyne Ti Teng Mei, ReNee Tang and Wong Jean-Li will be flying the Malaysian flag at the regional finals in Hong Kong.

The competition saw undergraduates from eight institutions in the country competing against each other in terms of business strategy-making and presentation.

They were judged based on multi-disciplinary criteria ranging from analysis and feasibility of solutions to cost and control implications.

The competition also provided students with the chance to foster creativity, innovation, communication and presentation skills which will be invaluable assets when they enter the workforce upon graduation.

Calyne said it was a good learning opportunity to think critically as she “gained rare insights into the real-life operations of the corporate world”.

Meanwhile, Alexis said they would be heading to Hong Kong with the intention to win.

“We aim to approach the finals with ingenuity, flexibility and professionalism.

“We will arm ourselves with knowledge by keeping abreast of developments across the Asia Pacific region and beyond. We shall strive to showcase our full potential,” he said.

The Malaysian team stand to win US$10,000 (RM32,600) per team if they emerge champions.
