NUS undergraduate shares winning experience at the 2013 International Student Business Forum

Singapore, 2 April 2013 — The 7th International Student Business Forum (ISBF) ended on a high note in Bangkok, where 67 students from 20 countries participated in this by-invitation programme from 21-25 March 2013. ISBF is one of Deloitte's global early identification programs which present their member firm network with a unique opportunity to engage with top talented students prior to graduation.

Ms Wynne Tang, a final year accounting undergraduate at the National University of Singapore (NUS) was one of the six participants in the multi-national winning team that beat 11 other teams in the case challenge. The other five winning participants hailed from Belgium, Malaysia, Poland, Taiwan and the United States. Teams had to present a business case for Johannesburg to pitch for the 2020 Summer Olympics as host city.

When asked about her experience, 23-year old Ms Tang shared, "I feel lucky to be selected for ISBF as it was my second time trying for a spot two years after my first internship with Deloitte. It is a rare privilege to be guided and coached by a group of successful professional leaders who made their careers in Deloitte. The experience and networking exposure has been very fulfilling in many aspects and excites me about a future career with Deloitte upon graduation." Ms Tang is one of three participating Singaporeans in this year's forum.

Ms Seah Gek Choo, Business Coach at ISBF 2013 and Talent Partner at Deloitte Singapore summed up this year's forum: "As a coach, I was there to share my business experience with the teams and to relate to them the various situations in the case challenge that they faced amidst today's business environment. Teaming with a human resource coach also meant that students received one-on-one feedback from me on their professional development. At the end of the forum, we have enabled the students to experience the four underpinning key outcomes of this career development platform and that is teamwork, leadership, cross-cultural skills and networking. These outcomes also help us to identify the next generation of Deloitte's future leaders."
