ACCA Country Head Nilusha Ranasinghe said, “The Association of chartered certified accountants (ACCA) is a globally acclaimed professional accountancy qualification focused on enhancing the technical financial skills of students and preparing them for a successful career. The global context demands a coherent balance of technical and professional skills to ensure success for students. Thus, the MT Junior initiative is a great step in moulding champion professionals.

Thus, we look towards champion students screened through our selection process’.”

Shafraz Saleem, Director – MT Studio said, ‘”Our education system emphasises strong focus across academic excellence and encourages predominant attention to this aspect of students’ lives. However, success in the corporate/entrepreneurial world depends on intelligence and ability to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, business acumen and right values. The honing of these skills are not structured and not consistently gathered by students. Thus, the ‘MT Junior’ programme aims at ensuring a fine balance of focus on academic and professional skills to ensure our young talent has a head start in the race to success/accomplishment.”

‘MT Junior’ inaugural batch would commence in February 2021.
