On 17th July 2020, Multimedia University (MMU) and Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in a virtual ceremony at Cyberjaya campus. The agreement was signed by Prof. Dr. Ho Chin Kuan, the Acting President of MMU and Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh, the President of MICPA with the aim to strengthen the efforts between both parties in terms of knowledge transfers as well the pathway for professional accountants.
