Experience sharing from the QP Case Analysis Competition 2016 winner
The Cream of the Crop

Chen Tzu Ying, one of the winning team members from the QP Case Analysis Competition in 2016 and a second year accounting student of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, says the main reason she joined the competition was that it's run by the HKICPA. “The HKICPA is a statutory accountancy body in Hong Kong, and I’m majoring in accountancy, so I thought it would be a valuable learning experience.”
