  • “The reason why I chose NTU MSc Accountancy is because as we know NTU is well-known for its Accountancy and it's one of the top programmes in the world. The Accountancy programme was indeed rigourous, however, with perseverance and help from my peers, I was able to cope with the programme. Moreover, I was able to apply what I learned from our class in the internship. My internship was Valuation and Business modelling so the financial management I learnt in class was relevant during the internship.”
