Maybank Go Ahead Challenge 2015

The Maybank Go Ahead Challenge – Campus Level took place this year on Saturday, 30 May 2015 at APU Campus, TPM. The annual challenge is an international case competition that challenges the participants’ intellect, stretches their creative ability and tests their endurance. Several APU students who took part in the challenge last year secured internships and job opportunities with Maybank Malaysia. Mr Gurpardeep Singh, Vice President of Operations, officiated the event with an opening speech.

This year, the campus level challenge saw participation of 85 students from APU. Although they were tested both mentally and physically, the students demonstrated high endurance and outstanding teamwork as they ran around the APU Main Campus building to complete various challenges, such as playing a futsal game in sumo suits and painting a masterpiece and then selling it to the assessors within a given timeframe. Assessors for the painting challenge were Mr Vijay Reddy, APU and Ms. Sophia , Head of Talent Branding, Maybank.


After a competitive day, 17 students from APU were selected to enter the National Level Maybank Go Ahead Challenge, which will be held on Wednesday, 5 August, at Menara Maybank, Kuala Lumpur. Winners at the National level will eventually enter the Grand Finals, in which they stand a chance to win attractive cash prizes, all-expenses-paid overseas internship opportunities with Maybank, as well as be a part of the Maybank family through the Global Maybank Apprentice Programme. The apprentice programme offers interns a holistic learning experience with customised on-the-job rotations; international assignments and face-to-face development interventions through a dedicated coach and mentor.

All the best to the 17 students who entered the national level; hopefully they will succeed in the upcoming challenges and bring pride to themselves and APU.
