MALAYSIAN students: Be a part of this year’s Malaysian Summit of Australia! Hear from key leaders and engage with prospective employers in the five-day event. Ernest Lee tells you more.

The Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia (MASCA) invites you to the annual Malaysian Summit of Australia (MASA) in Melbourne from April 20 – 24 this year.

Through MASA, MASCA aspires to build a strong and united Malaysian community in Australia while forging close relations with the Australian community.

Participants can expect the 2nd MASA to be bigger this year as Kelab UMNO Australia (KUA) and EHSAN Victoria are on board as the Summit’s organising partners.

This year, many prominent Malaysian leaders such as YB Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Youth and Sports, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, writer, TV producer, women rights & HIV/AIDS activist and Mr Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO of TalentCorp Malaysia will be attending the upcoming MASA Conference as guest speakers.

There are five main components of MASA and they are the MASA Conference, MASA Awards, MASA Careers, MASA Student Leaders Agenda and MASA Games.

The MASA Conference encourages student participation in national issues, youth development and career prospects.

More information on career prospects will be available at MASA Careers and attendees can expect some of Malaysia’s most established companies to be present.

In addition, MASCA will be introducing a new component called MASA Cyber Games as part of the MASA Games for the keyboard warriors out there.
