“I’m an alumnus of the first intake of the Axiata Graduate Programme (Jan ‘16 – Dec ‘17) which allowed me to experience working at a number of Axiata companies. I was able to gain multiple insights which helped me piece together a bigger picture of the business and achieve greater clarity on my career path.”

“Joining the Axiata Graduate Programme (AGP) was a chance for me to be involved in experiences that improved my post-graduation employability. Being an AGP Graduate Trainee allowed me to connect with various CxOs across the Axiata Group of Companies, which in turn exposed me to many different and enlightening perspectives. The programme also helped develop my finance and business acumen as well as cultivate my marketing skills. Most importantly, the rotation system trained me to be versatile and to easily adapt to any situation.”
