Being an ambassador is certainly not a place to show off, especially since this title is given by the Certified Practicing Accountant Australia (CPA Australia), a globally recognized, professional accounting institution. Every year, CPA Australia selects outstanding students in the fields of accounting, business, and finance to become Australian CPA ambassadors in various countries. In Indonesia, 12 leading universities participate in the 2020 CPA Australia Ambassador.
The UPH Business School’s Accounting Department sent Sri Rembulan, a student from the class of 2017, passing through the internal selection covering academic and non-academic achievements, as well as a good track record according to the criteria of the Australian CPA. Furthermore, the selection process by CPA Australia was rigorous, including the examination of the candidates’ knowledge of CPA Australia, accounting skills, organizational experience, and achievements. After going through all tests, in early May 2020, Sri Rembulan was announced to be CPA Australia Ambassador for the period of 2020-2021.
As a CPA Australia Ambassador 2020, Sri Rembulan certainly has many advantages, especially in preparing for future career, such as exclusive career guidance by professional mentors, being trained by CPA Australia, building networks with fellow students and graduates in the accounting field on a global scale, and access to a network of more than 163,000 members and 400 recognized employer partners worldwide. As CPA Ambassador, Sri Rembulan is also responsible for helping other students who need education and career guidance in economics as well as reviewing CPA programs at various events.
