HELP University (Malaysia) Triumphed in the the CIMB ASEAN Stock Investment Challenge Grand Finale 2014


We are delighted to inform that the HELP Team has just won the regional championship for the CIMB ASEAN Stock Investment Challenge Grand Finale 2014 which was held in Bangkok. There is a cash prize of US$ 12,000.  A total of 2,000 teams entered this competition.

The HELP Team is the national champion and we beat all the public and foreign universities that took part.

Similarly, in the regional competition we beat some of the region’s best universities, including National Technological University of Singapore and Thammasat University.

This is an evidence that HELP University has a top quality business school in the region. This win is significant and it shows how HELP University is differentiated from other Malaysian universities and those in ASEAN.

The success is attributed to our lecturers in the Faculty of Business, Economics and Accounting. This is an exemplary success story of persistence and fighting spirit, dedication and commitment, disciplined coaching, and when combined with the right team spirit, it ensured our success. The fact that HELP also came  in second place in two previous years, having lost to NUS in one year and to another one in another year, also shows that the consistency in the quality of our academic and professional standards.
