Fourth year student Derrick Kew Deck Guan was the emcee for the even160826 NUS Accountancy Networking Night 2016-63ing. After graduation, he will be embarking on his career at  Ernst & Young, starting in insurance auditing. He directly attributed this choice to his own experiences at Accountancy Networking Nights. The valued input of successful alumni was a deciding factor when choosing which of the Big Four he wanted to join.

The evening didn’t just benefit the students. It presented alumni with a unique opportunity to share their experiences and catch up with old friends. Wan Tuck Wah, from the inaugural accountancy batch back in 1967, returned once again to give back by mentoring current students. Chong Kek Sing (BAcc 1977) also expressed how much he likes helping students on their path to success: “I’m glad the students have this opportunity to hear from alumni and make informed choices. It’s great to be able to share my thoughts and experiences.”
