TYMBA, an ACCA-certified accounting training centre, has joined up with online employment platform GRADUAN to help produce agile talents that are adaptable to the ever-evolving role in accounting and finance landscape.
Officialized with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the cooperation also aims to upskill local accounting and finance talents with a view of positively impacting business sustainability at scale, which will ‘match’ TYMBA students with employers and job placements that best align with their skills and specialisations. Upon completing their accountancy studies with TYMBA, the institution’s alumni will also be prioritised for applications and employment opportunities on the GRADUAN platform.
“Growing the pool of accounting professionals is now a top national priority, with the Malaysian Institute of Accountants aiming to produce 60,000 accountants by 2030. We are fully committed to supporting this vision by connecting young talents to resources, mentorships, and on-the-job training opportunities," said Nabil Marie, CEO of GRADUAN, at signing ceremony,
"Our partnership with TYMBA will ensure that the future of accounting in Malaysia is strong and sustainable, providing a springboard for young talents to thrive in a demanding and dynamic accounting landscape."
The partnership will also provide professional exposure in the areas of capacity building and talent development for these talents. This includes complimentary invites and priority entry tickets to GRADUAN's events for TYMBA's representatives and affiliates.
On the other hand, GRADUAN’s community members will enjoy access to TYMBA’s seminars, workshops, as well as access to facilities for skill programmes, internships, and on-the-job training opportunities. TYMBA will also open up access to its network of industry professionals who will serve as mentors and advisors to GRADUAN members.
"In view of sustainability now being a business focus for organisations on a global level, TYMBA is constantly innovating our initiatives to drive the UN Sustainable Development Goals as well, particularly sustainable education. This is so our students can get a headstart on learning how to help organisations adapt to ever-evolving reporting requirements,” adds Airil Razali, CEO of TYMBA Education Group.
As a professional accounting specialist centre that provides ACCA, MICPA-CAANZ, CIMA, and ICAEW, TYMBA is set to continue developing initiatives to complement its existing internationally acclaimed syllabus. Students are trained by certified BPP UK tutors who specialise in different areas of accountancy, using an activity-based learning approach that is proven to create an effective and engaging learning experience.
TYMBA also provides upskilling and re-skilling modules for professionals looking to develop competencies and remain competitive in the market, such as CESGA, Xero Cloud Accounting Platform, ACCA Cert DA, and CDPOS.
