“Through my college life, I’ve experienced a lot of memorable things inside and outside of my classes. I’ve also learnt to be more sociable thanks to the various activities I am involved in, such as team building, football, international business club, organizing events, class projects and others,” she says.
Vaiyi says her activities have boosted her confidence and communication skills, apart from learning world-class accounting methodologies through her classes. “Being an audit associate, I feel that sitting for my BA and CAT examinations assures me of a very bright future.
“I think CamEd is a great choice if you want to embark on a career in accounting and finance. The college has qualified lecturers from various countries who have a wealth of teaching experience,” she says.
