After 500 hours, across 27 campuses and 13 countries, 60 Grand Finalists from a total of over 23,000 submissions for this year’s Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge (MGAC) will be competing in the Global Finals soon!

12 days of gruelling competition await these Global Finalists. They will compete for an opportunity to earn a spot in Maybank’s Award-winning Management Trainee Program – the Global Maybank Apprentice Programme (GMAP). At stake is also the Ultimate GO Ahead. Challenger and the Winning Team that offers the winners an Internship in New York, London and Hong Kong as well as cash prizes.

The Global Finalists are from a diverse background and nationalities including from India, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe (those countries not above). They are from a myriad of disciplines beyond just conventional banking and finance subjects. An Accountant would be pitting against a Medical Science finalist. Another group would have a mixture of a Lawyer, Physicist, Mechanical Engineer, Computer Scientists and a Psychologist. One with a Marketing background would be working alongside another with a Hospitality or Economics background. With such diversity, the MGAC is reflective of the global village and the Maybank world too.

Each candidate has been through the most rigorous of testing just to get this far, demonstrating the highest level of adaptability, resourcefulness and independence that our physical and Case Challenges have put them through so far. They anticipate the Global Finals will push them even further and are preparing to give their very best.
