Student's testimonial

Mohamad Ezarin Bin Mazlan

“I decided to enrol with MSMA due to its unique proposition for prospective students where it offers the best of both industry and academia. Students will have the opportunity to experience the master’s degree journey that is linked to globally recognised professional qualification. It is an opportunity that you can't miss. Let’s water two plants with one hose. 
 
Furthermore, I have equipped myself with a bachelor’s degree which gives a good foundation for financial accounting. Choosing CIMA is more relevant towards climbing up the career ladder which requires a more demanding and holistic perspective for decision making. With its case study-based examination, it is more practical for working professionals to relate between CIMA curriculum and the real-world environment.  In general, CIMA offers relevant knowledge that focuses on becoming a better decision maker and business partner that drives business growth. It is also a global passport for Management Accountants which provides flexibility to work in different industries. 
 
With MSMA and CIMA, it allows me to progress further in my career with a promotion. It is indeed a preferred and trusted qualification by the employer. The best part is that I'm able to practice the knowledge gained during the study and help me in providing better value to my work.  It is one of the best decisions I have ever made to enrol into the MSMA-CIMA program.” – Mohamad Ezarin Bin Mazlan, ACMA, CGMA, ASEAN CPA, CA(M), Manager (Financial Modelling, Corporate & Project Finance), Tenaga Nasional Berhad staff attached to TNB Power Generation Sdn.
