Graduation at London
Bai Xue (Accountant )
Globalfoundries Singapore Pte Ltd
The MSc Professional Accountancy offered by UOL at SIM
has helped to expand my career options, and I am in a
better position to take up more responsibilities and value-
add to my current and future employers.
Its design focuses on real world working experiences and
project delivery rather than on academia and examinations.
The projects and simulations have trained me to have
necessary management skills, such as, planning, controlling,
monitoring and communication.
I would like to thank all my professors for their
contributions. They have offered timely great advice and
have assisted me in scoring distinction in both my modules.
It has been the most wonderful time in my life and the best
educational experience I have had. Thank you!
1st Intake
This MSc in Professional Accountancy course has provided
me valuable insights to evolving world issues and painted
the full picture on the impact of globalisation, how
decisions made by one country will directly/indirectly
impact one another. It enhanced my knowledge on the
motivations behind Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
practices and also the catastrophic effect of Systemic Risk
on the banking industry and economy.
I have grown intellectually and this course has honed my
research and business writing skills, changed my perception
of things and most importantly improved my critical
analysis and decision making skills.
I have learnt that keeping abreast of global news is critical
to know what is coming so that I can better prepare myself
to face any challenge it encompasses. I liked the fact that
this course is focused on assignments and projects and is
thus suitable for busy working adults.
Juliet Koh (Finance Director, ASEAN)
Westcon Group Pte Ltd
1st Intake
On overcoming challenges
“While report-writing is commonplace for me, academic
essay-writing is a different ball game. Sometimes, even
after gathering the necessary information, I struggle to
type anything that sounds coherent on the word file. This
is when I find organising my thoughts on paper useful.
This may sound like an old school way of doing things, but
it has served me well. It is also less tiring for the eyes.”
Becoming a better finance professional
“I believe that the course will enable me and everyone
who is working with me to improve our work practices
and decision-making and shape me and my team into
better finance professionals who will be confident in
facing challenges.”
Wu Peicong (Financial Controller)
Reclaims Enterprise Pte Ltd

  • 22. Bai Xue (Accountant ) Globalfoundries Singapore Pte Ltd The MSc Professional Accountancy offered by UOL at SIM has helped to expand my career options, and I am in a better position to take up more responsibilities and value- add to my current and future employers. Its design focuses on real world working experiences and project delivery rather than on academia and examinations. The projects and simulations have trained me to have necessary management skills, such as, planning, controlling, monitoring and communication. I would like to thank all my professors for their contributions. They have offered timely great advice and have assisted me in scoring distinction in both my modules. It has been the most wonderful time in my life and the best educational experience I have had. Thank you! 1st Intake
  • 23. This MSc in Professional Accountancy course has provided me valuable insights to evolving world issues and painted the full picture on the impact of globalisation, how decisions made by one country will directly/indirectly impact one another. It enhanced my knowledge on the motivations behind Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices and also the catastrophic effect of Systemic Risk on the banking industry and economy. I have grown intellectually and this course has honed my research and business writing skills, changed my perception of things and most importantly improved my critical analysis and decision making skills. I have learnt that keeping abreast of global news is critical to know what is coming so that I can better prepare myself to face any challenge it encompasses. I liked the fact that this course is focused on assignments and projects and is thus suitable for busy working adults. Juliet Koh (Finance Director, ASEAN) Westcon Group Pte Ltd 1st Intake
  • 24. On overcoming challenges “While report-writing is commonplace for me, academic essay-writing is a different ball game. Sometimes, even after gathering the necessary information, I struggle to type anything that sounds coherent on the word file. This is when I find organising my thoughts on paper useful. This may sound like an old school way of doing things, but it has served me well. It is also less tiring for the eyes.” Becoming a better finance professional “I believe that the course will enable me and everyone who is working with me to improve our work practices and decision-making and shape me and my team into better finance professionals who will be confident in facing challenges.” Wu Peicong (Financial Controller) Reclaims Enterprise Pte Ltd 2nd Intake
