Singapore, 11 May 2022 – In conjunction with Nanyang Business School (NBS) Partners Day 2022, Nexia TS received an appreciation plaque in recognition of the firm’s continued support towards College of Business (Nanyang Business School), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
The plaque was presented to Ms Loh Hui Nee, Director, Assurance and People & Culture of CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS), to acknowledge the firm’s contribution to students at Nanyang Business School who have benefited from scholarships, internships, and job opportunities.
CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS)’ first scholarships were given out during the 2008-2009 financial crisis, to provide financial assistance to accountancy students of Nanyang Technological University and other local universities whose families were affected by the economic downturn.
Over the years, CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS) has awarded more than 25 scholarships to tertiary students across Singapore, including those in polytechnics. These scholarships not only offer financial aid, but also provide students with the opportunity to gain valuable exposure and hands-on work experience through internships with the firm. Besides scholarships, various study awards and book prizes were also given out to students at the tertiary level, to further drive their academic interests in accounting and finance.
Even when the economy was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS)’ support for students’ learning did not cease. In fact, the firm ramped up the number of scholarships by threefold so as to reach out to more beneficiaries during this difficult time.
Scholarships not only serve as assistance to those in need, but also help to groom future talent for the accountancy sector. Scholarship recipients under the CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS)’ scholarship programme are offered opportunities to hone their skills as interns at the firm. Those who are outstanding may continue to develop their careers with the firm upon graduation.
As chairman of the Nanyang Business School Dean’s Alumni Advisory Board, CLA Global TS (formerly Nexia TS)’ Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, Mr Henry Tan is actively involved in various mentorship programmes and leadership and impact sessions organised by the school. He hopes his actions will create a ripple effect, inspiring the next generation to pass it on.
