A message from Agnes Chan

These are exactly the questions we had in mind throughout the process of planning and launching EYAcademy.

EYAcademy is a holistic approach to your professional and personal development, comprising key elements of learning, experience and coaching and mentoring over a period of three years.

As the most globalized organization among the major professional accounting firms, EY encourages our people to adopt a global mindset. In EYAcademy, we will show you the strength of our global organization in practice by offering you the opportunities of internship and working with an international team.

One of the highlights of EYAcademy will be the CSR Challenge. We chose corporate social responsibility as the theme of the challenge because we not only want our people to be outstanding employees but also responsible citizens of the society. We believe that together we can build a better world.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to our advisors. They are leaders of our society and offer invaluable advice to our program.

At EY, we aspire to have a leading people culture. EYAcademy enables us to include you in this culture at an early stage. This is your opportunity to grow with us and to become future leaders of the world.

I look forward to welcoming you, EYA Cadets, to EYAcademy.

Managing Partner, Hong Kong & Macau EY
