SEGi College Student Inherits The SEGi ACCA Excellence

With three decades of experience in offering ACCA, SEGi College is renowned for producing top accounting experts. And with dozens of Paper Prize, Malaysia Prize and World Prize winners since 1977, SEGi College is definitely one of the best education institutions for ACCA in the country. 

Excellent academicians of the college have produced outstanding ACCA students. Lim Sei Haw, a student of SEGi College Kuala Lumpur won the First Place for Paper 1.1 in ACCA.

“Although this prize does not come as a surprise to me but I am still very proud of what I have achieved today. I made the choice to do ACCA even though I was offered to pursue further studies in accounting locally because being an international paper, it’s more challenging,” said Lim.

When asked about his key to success, he said, “Work hard and work smart.”

Lim’s achievement was somewhat more special, as he was admitted into hospital for 1 week after being diagnosed with dengue fever during the duration of his course.

His lecturer Mr. Haneef said, “Lim has always been putting effort into his studies and was doing what was told and required of him. I share in his happiness.”

“We take pride with our students’ achievement as it reflects the quality we have built, maintained and improved over time,” said Hew Moi Lan, Vice President (Operations) of SEG International Bhd and Principal of SEGi College Kuala Lumpur.

“The ACCA lecturers at SEGi College are specially hand-picked, while personalised attention is a priority given to each student to ensure their success. SEGi's proven history of prize winners, affordability, experienced lecturers and strategic location makes it a recipe for a successful accounting education,” added Hew.

SEGi College has built a strong reputation of offering professional qualifications in Malaysia such as ACCA, CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing), NCC (National Computing Centre) and LCCI.

“For 30 years, thousands to be professional accountants, marketers and company secretaries were coached by us to be outstanding and ethical corporate employees. Many have gone on to rewarding careers and have often look upon the College as the foundation of their achievement as they have gained their knowledge and invaluable learning experience here,” said Hew.

SEGi College Kuala Lumpur is the pioneer college of the group that has built a reputation amongst working adults for part time professional courses. Located in the heart of the city, it is easily accessible by public transport of LRT and buses making it a favourite amongst the young career minded people who are looking at upgrading their qualifications.

“Our flexibility has made us a choice amongst working adults as we understand their learning needs. We provide part time courses with evening and weekend classes, flexible payment modes and exemptions for those with prior qualifications,” added Hew.
