Jesper Huang has been crowned as the Nottingham Campus Level champion, beating the other finalists. He said that he was overwhelmed with the winning and advancement to the National Finals.
“The Maybank Go Ahead Challenge (MGAC) 2019 was a truly remarkable experience. Truthfully, I did not expect to experience such a holistic journey in a business case study competition. The MGAC 2019 tested our mettle and forced us to expand our creativity beyond boundaries known to crack the complexities of the case.
I am elated to be given the opportunity to represent University of Nottingham Malaysia at the National Finals and look forward to meeting some of the most talented and passionate people throughout this exciting journey.”
We wish you all the best! Keep roaring, Nottingham team! #MGACxNottingham2019
