SMSO Muslim Students Initiative - Mortar Board Abroad Series
Thinking of studying overseas??
SMSO would like to create an opportunity to spend some time with you for a half-day event and invite 1-2 senior/junior professionals from 1-2 fields to share with you about their lives as students, their profession and how they managed to develop their careers so far.
Thereafter, we will invite a fresh graduate of a similar field, who has studied overseas to share their overseas education experience followed by a mini skills workshop on the importance of CV writing and important information on applying for grants and scholarships. The entire event will be done in an informal setting, where students and our invited guests get to mingle, talk and eat together.
Join us and meet like-minded individuals.
Our theme for this MSI Mortar Board Abroad Series is
Law and Accountancy!
Date: 16 April 2016
Target audience: Poly, JC, ITE and Madrasah students. 20-30 pax
Venue: TBC. We will inform those who RSVP, the venue, once it is confirmed
Invited Senior Professionals/ Speakers:
- Mr Ahmad Nizam Abbas, Straits Law Advocates & Solicitors
- Mr Hamid Abdullah, Chairman, Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) and Audit Director, Public Sector
Despite the theme, participants who attend might not necessarily be those who are only interested in Law or Accountancy. There will be various SMSO members who come from different industry backgrounds, and will be open to talk and give advice on overseas education/ careers other than the themes.
