IN con­junc­tion with World Health Day 2017 re­cently, Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal School Stu­dent As­so­ci­a­tion and MSU’s Med­i­cal and Health Sciences clus­ter, set a new record in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) for The Largest Si­mul­ta­ne­ous Par­tic­i­pa­tion in a Health Screen­ing Ses­sion.

The theme of the pro­gramme was “Fight Against De­pres­sion”.

A to­tal of 10,983 peo­ple had screen­ings at sev­eral places, such as the MSU main cam­pus in Shah Alam, MSU Col­lege branches in Shah Alam, Am­pang, Serem­ban, Kota Bharu, Kuala Tereng­ganu, Sabah and Sarawak, klia2, Aeon Shah Alam and schools in the Klang Val­ley.

The health screen­ing in­cluded Body Mass In­dex, blood pres­sure, as well as glu­cose and stress level checks.

Be­sides the health screen­ing, there was also a Car­diac Night Run 2.0 and “Chat with The Ex­pert on Con­tin­u­ous Med­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion” by con­sul­tant psy­chi­a­trist Pro­fes­sor Zulk­i­fli Ghaus.

The cer­tifi­cate of achieve­ment was pre­sented to MSU Pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Ya­jid by MBR se­nior of­fi­cer Nurasyikin Ramli at the univer­sity.

This pro­gramme is in line with the Univer­sity’s com­mit­ment in build­ing strong bonds and net­work­ing be­tween cam­pus and the lo­cal com­mu­nity through en­gage­ment ac­tiv­i­ties.

It was also an­other ef­fort to in­cul­cate a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence and strong re­la­tion­ship among the MSUri­ans.

This record-break­ing achieve­ment is one of the an­nual events con­ducted by MSU and it’s col­le­giate in­sti­tu­tion, MSU Col­lege, known for their abil­ity and com­mit­ment to cre­ate new records and break­ing old ones.

To date, MSU and MSU Col­lege are the record hold­ers of 31 MBR records.

MSU trains its stu­dents to be com­pe­tent pro­fes­sion­als and have ex­po­sure to so­cial en­gage­ment.

As one of Malaysia’s best teach­ing and learn­ing uni­ver­si­ties, MSU pri­ori­tises de­vel­op­ing its stu­dents and fac­ulty as well as en­hanc­ing grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

En­gag­ing highly-qual­i­fied aca­demics and in­ter­na­tional visiting pro­fes­sors, the univer­sity de­liv­ers com­pelling learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences within the frame­work of a holis­tic cur­ricu­lum.

Metic­u­lously crafted to en­hance grad­u­ates’ po­ten­tial, the univer­sity’s pro­grammes of study pro­duce grad­u­ates that are a pop­u­lar pick among em­ploy­ers.

A grad­u­ate tracer study by the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry showed 98.6 per cent of MSU grad­u­ates were able to se­cure em­ploy­ment within six months of their grad­u­a­tion, se­cur­ing the na­tional top spot in grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity among the na­tion’s higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions.

Whereas in a re­cent rat­ing, plac­ing MSU on world-class stan­dards, was the QS 2016 Rat­ing, which awarded 5 Stars to the Univer­sity for its Teach­ing, Em­ploy­a­bil­ity, Fa­cil­i­ties, So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity, and Inclusiveness.

MSU has set a new record in the Malaysia Book of Records for The Largest Si­mul­ta­ne­ous Par­tic­i­pa­tion in a Health Screen­ing Ses­sion.
