AIESEC – Della and fellow AIESEC members.
Great future prospect and wanting to learn something new and different was the reason behind 20-year old Della Averina’s choice to take up the BSc (Hons) Accounting & Finance programme at Sunway University.
The young lass from Jakarta, Indonesia said that “Accounting and Finance graduates have great future prospects as they can basically go to any kinds of industries, not only audit/tax firms or banks, so it was a pretty much safe choice for me who was still exploring what to do next in life and how I really want to contribute to the working world.”
She also pointed out that, instead of focusing on just Accounting and Finance, the programme also offers other subjects such as Management, Marketing, Law, Ethics and leadership, which help shaped her into a well-rounded graduate.
Prior to her degree, Della did her International Baccalaureate Diploma in Psychology and Science subjects after finishing her studies at the Stella Maris International School, Jakarta. She is currently working with CIMB Niaga (a CIMB Group subsidiary in Indonesia).
Despite the challenges of learning to juggle time between her studies, extra-curricular activities and a part-time job, Della managed to excel in her studies and was elected Valedictorian at the Sunway University Graduation Ceremony last year. She indeed felt honored for it was unexpected she believed there were a number of students who performed better than her academically and non-academically.
For those who are considering to take up the BSc (Hons) Accounting & Finance at Sunway University, Della says to just go for it as Sunway University and Lancaster University (which validates the programme) are both well known for their Accounting and Finance degree. She describes Sunway as a conducive environment for self-exploration, which is a relatively safe choice for those who are still uncertain of their future paths.
Della is grateful to the University for providing her the Tan Sri Dato Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah Entrance Scholarship, which helped lighten her parents’ financial burdens and enabled her to learn and grow, and for the opportunities and platform to practice her leadership and teamwork skills.
According to Della, during her 3 years of study at Sunway University, she led an active schedule outside the classroom having been trusted with various roles which included her being Vice President for the Association for the International Exchange of Students in Economics and Commerce (AIESEC) and the Business Investment Society, the Indonesian Representative for the International Student Ambassadors and Student Council Executive Member. She also participated in various programmes by Leaderonomics such as the LEAP Platinum and Project 25.
