Yu Yang came from a low-income, single-parent family. While studying, he worked part-time to lighten his mother’s financial load. As a result, his studies suffered, scoring badly for every subject except Mathematics. He knew then his future lay in numbers.
So when he excelled in his ‘N’ levels, Yu Yang enrolled in SP’s Diploma in Accountancy through its Polytechnic Foundation Programme.
In SP, Yu Yang flourished in his studies and was awarded the SP Scholarship. He had the opportunity to hone his knowledge by participating in the ICAEW Deloitte Business Case Challenge and NTU Audit and Accounting Challenge.
A three-month internship stint at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) allowed Yu Yang to apply the techniques and skills learnt in his course to real-life situations. For his excellent performance, he was awarded the PwC Outstanding Award for Whole Leadership.
Yu Yang plans to pursue the ICAEW Chartered Accountant qualifications while serving national service. His goal is to join one of the Big Four Auditing firms as a Professional Auditor with a Chartered Accountant of Singapore qualification.
