Whether it’s planning for your career, your next luxury gadget, or an investment, proper financial know-how will help you accomplish your goals in life.

As an institution that cares about our students future, QIU recently inked a deal to collaborate with the CIMB Foundation to increase financial literacy among our student body.

The two parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Monday ( Sept 30) to work together on the Be$MART literacy programme.

QIU Chief Operating Officer Mr Nicholas Goh represented the University, while CIMB Foundation Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Hamidah Naziadin signed on behalf of the foundation.

Several other universities also signed MoUs to cooperate with CIMB under the same programme, including Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), and the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).

The programme is designed to equip today’s youth with the knowledge and skills to manage their finances, as part of an initiative to reduce bankruptcy rates among young people.

Under the agreement, CIMB will be the main organiser for financial literacy training programmes targeted at QIU students.

Undoubtedly, this will be a boon for our students as they prepare for their financial independence as young consumers.
