The MoA signing marks a significant milestone in the partnership, as both parties aim to raise financial awareness, promote financial education, and drive financial literacy among young Malaysians. “As an education partner, P10 will offer a Financial Intelligence System that creates a fun and interactive environment for lecturers and students alike,” said Mr. Alan Lim.
The Financial Intelligence System is a portal designed to simplify complex financial calculations and provide quick and accurate results related to financial transactions, investments, loans, retirement, asset management, and other financial scenarios.
“We are delighted to have P10 as our strategic working partner, as this partnership aligns with APU’s mission to provide financial education with state-of-the-art technology that can greatly enhance the learning experience and ensure that students are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the complexities of the financial world. This will accelerate their immense creativity and innovation and further prepare them for future-proof careers,” added Prof. Dr. Vinesh.
The partnership will facilitate knowledge sharing through joint workshops, seminars, train-the-trainer sessions, and mutual visits for undergraduates, faculty members, and working staff of both parties. In addition to T&L facilities and capacity building at APU Financial Trading Centre, both parties will work together to foster financial literacy and education in Malaysia.
The MoA signing ceremony was held at the APU campus located in Mranti Park, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.
