Finale of the special flight “Breaking the Limit” within The Deloitte Passport Program in 2018
The finale of the special flight “Breaking the Limit” within the Deloitte Passport program in 2018, co-organized by Deloitte Vietnam and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), was held in Hanoi on October 23 and Ho Chi Minh City on October 26.
HANOI, 29 October 2018 - This program, which inherits the success of “Breaking The Limit” competition that had run for three years, provides a regional intellectual playground for young talented students or new graduates with specialization in banking - finance, auditing – accounting, law and taxation from universities around Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Launched in late July in Hanoi and early August in Ho Chi Minh city, Deloitte Passport program in 2018 attracted more than 2,000 students around the country. This year's competition is open to not only the final year students but also the second and third year students, who had to go through four rounds of assessments, including application screening, writing test, group interview, and individual interview. More than 200 students in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City reached the final round, where they participated in a jeopardy-styled contest and answered questions on social and economic issues.
The difference in this year's finale is the utilization of mobile and computer applications in each stage of the competition with a new format that showcased the innovation of Deloitte Passport program and the suitability to young talents in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0. Especially, this year’s championship went to the best team instead of an individual as did in previous years, aiming to promote team spirit that is in line with Deloitte’s As One culture.
In the finale held in Hanoi, five students - Nguyen Ngoc Nguyen, Ngo Huyen Vy, Dinh Thi Yen Linh, Bui Duy Long (from Hanoi Foreign Trade University) and Tran Dieu Ngan (from Academy Of Finance) - successfully overcame nearly 100 other competitors to become the winners. In Ho Chi Minh city, five students: Nguyen Ngoc Thanh Quyen, Le Thi Bich Ngoc, Nguyen Ngoc Thanh Tung, Vu Thi Ngoc Anh from Economic University of Ho Chi Minh City and Nguyen Van Huy Thanh from Vietnamese - German University have overcome 85 other competitors to become the winners.
With the total prize value of billions of VND, the winners in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city, in addition to receiving training and internships at Deloitte Vietnam, will receive:
- Full scholarship of ICAEW's international – standard CFAB;
- Three-day Singapore trip to exchange and study at the 2019 Southeast Asia Business Challenge also co-organized by Deloitte and ICAEW and to participate in the ICAEW Singapore Career Fair.
Speaking at the event, Tran Thuy Trang, Human Resources and Learning Director of Deloitte Vietnam, said: "The world is rapidly changing along with the happening of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, which significantly impacts on the future of work with the shift in the nature and requirements of jobs. In addition, the labor force is welcoming Gen-Z employees who are more innovative and require more rapid changes than Gen-X & Gen-Y used to be. The launch of Deloitte Passport program, along with the finale of the "Breaking The Limit" special flight, is considered our preeminent efforts and preparation to help increase the competitive advantages for young generations on the broad and increasingly flatter world and an overheating labor market.
Ms. Dang Thi Mai Trang, Head of ICAEW Vietnam said: "With the desire to not only bring opportunities for young people to test their ability in the financial services industry but also to equip them with more knowledge and skills in order for them to be well-prepared for their future career, we are delighted that the 'Breaking The Limit' has become a meaningful annual competition for Vietnamese students during the past four years. I believe that the experience gained through the competition will be useful for students in their career paths and their personal development in the future.
