[By Ayushree Thapa] 1

How often have we complained about not having proper resources? Not having enough opportunities to make it big?

Well, AIESEC, Taylor’s University and Sunway University have joined forces to bring these opportunities to you.

 The YEA summit, happening on 31 May 2014 at the Grand Hall of Taylor’s University, is your chance to take the first step towards your dreams. The summit, starting at 9.30 am and ending at 6 pm, will be hosting international partners from well-known, successful companies. It is not every day you get to meet the Executive Creative Director of Leo Burnett, who will be present during the event. Other notable companies such as CIMB, UNDP, TEG and Ernst and Young will also be a part of the summit. These companies will conduct interactive workshops, and participants will get to learn but most importantly know what these big names expect from these individuals.


The YEA summit has something for everyone. People interested in accounting and finance will be able to know more and network with CIMB, an ASEAN investment bank with 1,080 branches across the region. Ernst and Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, will also be present. EY is one of the largest professional services firms in Malaysia, with more than 2,600 employees in 16 offices throughout the country. Moreover, UNDP, the United Nations’ global development network working towards spreading knowledge, resources and experience throughout the globe, is an ideal place for people who want to help others and build them a better life. Similarly, for all you marketing enthusiasts, the YEA summit will be hosting Leo Burnett, the advertising agency with 6,950 employees and the brains behind many advertising characters such as Marlboro Man, Tony the Tiger and Jolly Green Giant. Participants who are interested in marketing will also get the chance to intermingle with TEG, a company dedicated to reach a diversified international audience using their publication, websites, events and more.


Unlike most workshops, YEA will facilitate interaction between you and the company partners with whom you may be working after graduation. The participants will have an opportunity to learn, ask questions and pave their way to a better future. Some participants will also be invited to the networking dinner, where you can dine with and get the chance to impress some of the biggest names in Kuala Lumpur. These companies, renowned all over the world, could be a part of your future. So make sure to bring your A game.


It is about time we stop complaining and be a part of something that could determine who we become in the next 5 years. Hurry! With limited tickets, opportunities are literally up for grabs. The tickets are being sold at the official website ( for RM20, inclusive of lunch and a certificate. However, for those who love a good deal, you can buy your ticket from any AIESEC member for RM15.
