Maybank Switch Up will push the contestants to their limits as they are exposed to various strategic challenges to bring the business of banking to the next level amid the changing landscape and tightening competition in the market.

"Maybank Switch Up is an opportunity for the students to not only apply their strategic skills but also incorporate their creative ideas to come up with innovative plans that will create or enhance a bank product aimed to stand out in the highly regulated and continuously growing financial industry," said MPI President and CEO Herminio M.
