On the right side of the ledger

Management and Science University (MSU) accounting student Muhammad Aizat Sahar is on track to realizing his dream. Beating 16 nationwide hopefuls for the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) Best Accounting Student Award, the aspiring auditor has landed himself a prized place on the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) professional development programme plus some weight in his pocket. Currently interning at a member firm of Grant Thornton International Ltd, Muhammad Aizat wants to work for a further three years to get a closer feel for the industry so he can take the experience into his ICAEW papers and eventually qualify as a Chartered Accountant.

Muhammad Aizat attributes his successes to having made the right choices and to the all-round support he receives – from friends, family, and the University. The student of Bachelor in Accountancy (Hons) at the MSU Faculty of Business Management and Professional Studies (FBMP) credits his lecturers for their singular commitment to helping him develop well-rounded proficiency and character, and to the University’s holistic approach to education, which, delivered by compelling learning experiences, has resulted in Management and Science University (MSU) ranking among the nation’s most popular Best Teaching and Learning University.

Accounting and finance at MSU are offered in a wide range of programmes and from diploma right up to PhD to meet all levels of employment needs. MSU graduates are leading the pack in the national hiring market. The latest figures from the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education show 98.6% of MSU graduates are able to score a job within six months of graduation, depositing would-be graduates such as Muhammad Aizat on the right side of the ledger, and the University in the national top spot for graduate employability.
