The MoA pro­vides graduates of the As­so­ci­ate­ship of the Malaysian In­surance In­sti­tute (AMII) to pur­sue the Pro­fes­sional Mas­ter in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­gramme at MUST with a 20% from the tu­ition fees of RM25,000.

Present at the sign­ing were MUST Chair­man Tan Sri Ef­fendi Nor­wawi, MII Chair­man Hashim Harun, MII CEO Dato’ Haji Syed Mo­heeb Syed Ka­marulza­man, MUST Pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Dr Premku­mar Ra­jagopal, and guest speaker Na­tional His­to­rian and Aca­demi­cian Pro­fes­sor Emer­i­tus Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim.

Hashim re­it­er­ated the im­por­tance and rel­e­vance of the MII in spear­head­ing the devel­op­ment of tal­ent in the in­surance in­dus­try.

“In these dy­namic and fast chang­ing times, the MII is com­mit­ted to en­sure tal­ent devel­op­ment in the lo­cal in­surance in­dus­try through con­tin­u­ous learn­ing.

“It is with great hon­our we enter into the MoA with MUST, a lead­ing and recog­nised higher ed­u­ca­tion provider that of­fers a broad spec­trum of high qual­ity aca­demic pro­grammes in ad­vanced busi­ness, science and tech­nol­ogy.

“The Bank Ne­gara Gover­nor has stated in­sur­ers need to groom tal­ent to move to the next level and MII is push­ing this ini­tia­tive with MUST to achieve that goal.

“The MBA with MUST will give in­surance pro­fes­sion­als an added edge in their ca­reer devel­op­ment and will en­sure they have the rel­e­vant skills and knowl­edge to ex­e­cute their func­tions bet­ter for the good of the in­surance in­dus­try,” he said.

Ef­fendi com­mented the MoA with MII will es­tab­lish a solid and longterm col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the two par­ties to pro­vide AMII graduates a path­way to the MBA pro­gramme.

“We are pleased to ink the part­ner­ship with MII in to­day’s MoA sign­ing. We take heed of the gov­ern­ment’s call to at­tract and nur­ture tal­ent and the tie-up with the MII will be a pos­i­tive step to­wards achiev­ing that ob­jec­tive,” said TEf­fendi.
