“CPA Potential” is a contest organized by the Accounting and Auditing Club of the Ho Chi Minh city University of Economics in October and November each year for students in economics of universities in Ho Chi Minh city and the Mekong Delta. For its 13th installment in 2014, the scope is broadened to include Central Vietnam with the participation of DTU and of the Da Nang University of Economics.
 
Speaking at the kick-off ceremony, Mrs Huynh Ngoc Thien, representing the sponsors, said, “We are very honored to sponsor the CPA Potential contest - a large playground for students in economics. Over the years, the contest not only improved, but it also expanded to give students an opportunity to exchange, learn, share experiences, and to evaluate their own capabilities. This is the first time it is organized in Central Vietnam, but we expect it will be a bridge to help students measure their strengths and to obtain nice prizes. We hope that, through the contest, we can bring the DTU students some of the newest information about career opportunities to help them find the right orientation for the future.”
