Pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates

New Straits Times - - Excellence In Education -

THE Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­coun­tancy (FOBA) at SEGi Uni­ver­sity & Col­leges is at the fore­front of pro­duc­ing in­no­va­tive busi­ness grad­u­ates to meet the grow­ing in­dus­try de­mands. This is made pos­si­ble through the most com­pre­hen­sive busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion of­fered at SEGi. Stu­dents are exposed to a myr­iad of key eco­nomic is­sues, and hence, have high em­ploy­ment prospects.

The re­sults speak for them­selves. Our ac­count­ing and fi­nance grad­u­ates have a 100 per cent em­ploy­ment rate within three months of grad­u­a­tion.

SEGi also col­lab­o­rates with some of the best univer­si­ties across the globe to de­velop suit­able cur­ricu­lum in re­sponse to the com­pet­i­tive mar­ket de­mands.

For ex­am­ple, stu­dents may opt to pur­sue a Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness and Fi­nance (3+0) or a Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness and Mar­ket­ing (3+0) at SEGi, awarded by Keele Uni­ver­sity in the United Kingdom.

Keele Uni­ver­sity has re­ceived nu­mer­ous recog­ni­tion for its qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, such as Top 4 Per Cent of the World’s Univer­si­ties by Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion World Uni­ver­sity Rank­ings for two con­sec­u­tive years in 2015 and 2016, and 1st for Em­ploy­a­bil­ity by Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Sta­tis­tics Agency 2016, among some of the many on its list.

As the busi­ness world be­comes in­creas­ingly chal­leng­ing, it is nec­es­sary to en­sure SEGi grad­u­ates are pre­pared. There­fore, SEGi keeps the cur­ricu­lum up-to-date and rel­e­vant to the cur­rent busi­ness de­mands.

There are nu­mer­ous other busi­ness pro­grammes at SEGi, such as 3+0 UK de­gree pro­grammes, part­ner­ing with univer­si­ties across the UK, in­clud­ing Aber­tay Uni­ver­sity, Uni­ver­sity of Green­wich, York St John Uni­ver­sity and Uni­ver­sity of Sun­der­land, among oth­ers.

De­spite the Malaysian econ­omy per­form­ing well in the last few years, in­fla­tion con­tin­ues to rise. As a re­sult, par­ents may need to dou­ble up their sav­ings for their kids’ ed­u­ca­tion ex­penses. SEGi has ev­ery­thing you need for your kids. We have de­vel­oped a value for money home-grown de­gree pro­gramme.

The pro­gramme, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with one of Scot­land’s lead­ing univer­si­ties, Aber­tay Uni­ver­sity, will award grad­u­ates with two de­grees — one from SEGi and an­other from Aber­tay. Stu­dents can choose from a few pro­grammes, which are Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons); Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance (Hons); Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Man­age­ment (Hons) with spe­cial­i­sa­tions in Hu­man Re­source Man­age­ment, Gen­eral Man­age­ment, Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment or Mar­ket­ing Man­age­ment.

The qual­ity of cur­ricu­lum is as­sured due to stringent reg­u­la­tions by Aber­tay on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Lec­tur­ers from Dundee Busi­ness School of Aber­tay Uni­ver­sity will im­part knowl­edge to SEGi stu­dents from time to time. This dou­ble de­gree pro­gramme is an ex­cel­lent choice for stu­dents to get two de­grees for the price of one.

At SEGi, we also be­lieve that learn­ing goes be­yond the class­room and cur­ricu­lum. There­fore, we pro­vide our stu­dents with un­par­al­leled ac­cess to some of the in­dus­try’s big­gest play­ers, in­clud­ing, but not limited to, the man­ag­ing part­ner of a pri­vate equity firm, Ni­cholas Ru­pert Heylett Bloy.

Ni­cholas of Navis Cap­i­tal Part­ners, a lead­ing pri­vate equity firm in Asia with seven of­fices in Asean, has vast knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ences in var­i­ous in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing con­sumer and in­dus­trial goods, oil and gas, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, elec­tron­ics and fi­nan­cial ser­vices.

The busi­ness and ac­count­ing school in SEGi, es­tab­lished in 1977, has at­tained a pres­ti­gious sta­tus for its suc­cess in pro­duc­ing ca­reer-ready grad­u­ates. As the largest and old­est fac­ulty in SEGi, it knows what it takes to pre­pare the stu­dents upon grad­u­a­tion.

Busi­ness stu­dents in the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­coun­tancy (FOBA) at SEGi will de­velop new soft skills such as com­mu­ni­ca­tion and in­ter­per­sonal skills through learn­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence.
