As one of the “the big four” of international accounting firms, Deloitte gives an opportunity for university students across Indonesia to be Deloitte Grand Ambassadors. This year, the Deloitte Grand Ambassador 2017 was named as Ulayya Gempur Tirani, Accounting student at the Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Gadjah Mada.
The students who were selected in this competition had passed competitive selection in advance. First, the candidate has to pass an online administrative selection. Afterwards, they completed an English test, as well as auditing, taxation and financial accounting tests.
Based on these selections, five students with the highest scores from each university joined an enrichment test and final selection at the Deloitte office in Jakarta. In the final round, 50 finalists were divided into groups to have a Focus Group Discussion. Later, 20 finalists were selected to do panel sessions. Each finalist was given a question and had to present their answer to the management and partners of Deloitte Indonesia. Eventually, 10 finalists were named Deloitte Grand Ambassadors, including Ulayya.
As Deloitte Grand Ambassador, Ulayya is entitled to have a scholarship and opportunities to join as a Deloitte Junior Asscociate when she graduates from UGM as well as to enhance the relations between Faculty of Economics and Business UGM and Deloitte. Ulayya hoped that being Deloitte Grand Ambassador would produce opportunities for more cooperation between the two parties. “The cooperation may cover audit simulation, campus recruitment, or public lectures from Deloitte in the future,” said Ulayya on Monday (3/4).
