Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge 2015 Takes Off!

Thursday, May 07, 2015

The Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge (MGAC) 2015, Maybank's award-winning talent search and recruitment competition is now back in searching for the brightest and best young minds from 14 countries across the world, the Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge 2015 will see thousands of university students and recent graduates battle it out for a total prize purse of $72,000 USD and the chance at a high-flying career in the banking and financial services industry.

The inaugural MGAC in 2012 was opened to six countries, this year it is expanding to 14 countries including UK and US. The number of nationalities participating in the various stages grew from 10 in 2012, to 20 nationalities last year. This year we expect to have over 20 nationalities.

The theme of this year's Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge is #MoreThanAChallenge, and the format of the competition has been reworked to reflect this. The scope of the Challenge has been widened, recognising the value that candidates outside of traditional banking and finance background represent, and in line with Maybank's goal of Humanising Financial Services.

Furthermore, this year applicants may join with their friends in a team of up to five Challengers, or individually as in previous years. During the Challenge the participants will face an array of tests which will call upon a wide range of skills and abilities, and must demonstrate their capacity to respond to rapidly-changing circumstances.

There will also be enhanced rewards for the Challengers who make it through to the International Grand Finals, which will be held in Kuala Lumpur in August. In addition to the Grand Prize of $40,000 for the Champion Team along with runners-up prizes of $20,000 USD and $10,000 USD for the second- and third-placed teams, 2015 will see a People's Choice' award for the favourite team decided by a public vote.

For individuals who distinguish themselves throughout the International Grand Finals, MGAC is expanding its internship prizes to 2 new cities:
