Ong Yong Xun, our Accounting student from the Faculty of Management (FOM) and student start-up founder of ‘JomStudy’ apps represented Malaysia to participate in the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) on Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development for the 2023 Spring intake. Yong Xun was selected as one of the four Malaysian to join the programme from 25th March until 28th April 2023. 

The highly competitive YSEALI Academic Fellowship programme is being hosted by University of Connecticut and University of Texas-Austin, where it serves as a platform for Fellows to get an overview of entrepreneurial approaches that are employed to address social and economic issues. The Fellowship will review the development, history, challenges, and successes of enterprises and community leaders, in the United States and globally. Students will also meet with community leaders, entrepreneurs, and representatives of non-profit organisations. 

Congratulations on this incredible milestone and all the best!
