MASTER of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (MBA) grad­u­ates con­tinue to achieve high salar­ies, beat­ing aver­ages from a decade ago, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est re­search from the As­so­ci­a­tion of MBAs (AMBA).

As per Grad­u­ate Man­age­ment Ad­mis­sion Coun­sel’s (GMAC) sur­vey, 95 per cent of busi­ness school grad­u­ates stated that their MBA de­gree was ben­e­fi­cial per­son­ally even dur­ing re­ces­sion time.

MBA grad­u­ates are much more in de­mand from blue-chip em­ploy­ers. There­fore, Malaysian work­ing pro­fes­sion­als are keen to upgrade their qual­i­fi­ca­tion while man­ag­ing work.

An in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised MBA is avail­able for work­ing pro­fes­sion­als to pur­sue over the week­end while man­ag­ing their pro­fes­sional and per­sonal life.

The MBA from the Anglia Ruskin Uni­ver­sity, the United Kingdom, de­liv­ered by FTMS Col­lege Malaysia, is a one-year pro­gramme in which the as­sess­ment is by course­work to al­low stu­dents to fo­cus on gain­ing knowl­edge rather than wor­ry­ing for ex­ams.

Anglia Ruskin Uni­ver­sity has re­cently won “The En­tre­pre­neur­ial Uni­ver­sity of the Year” Award. Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Re­search As­sess­ment Ex­er­cise (RAE), Anglia Ruskin is a top rated mod­ern uni­ver­sity, with more than 30 per cent of its re­search sub­mis­sions rated as “In­ter­na­tion­ally Ex­cel­lent”.

It is ranked 10th in the Green League 2010 by Peo­ple and Planet.

The pro­gramme is ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency and ap­proved by the Pub­lic Ser­vice De­part­ment (JPA).

FTMS Col­lege is proud to an­nounce the open­ing of its new cam­pus in Cy­ber­jaya.

FTMS’s new build­ing is set in a lush green land­scape with wa­ter fea­tures and it has a cen­tralised air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem, lifts, a gym, dis­abled-friendly fa­cil­i­ties as well as a 24-hour se­cu­rity ser­vice.

The ar­chi­tec­ture is mod­ern with an im­pos­ing atrium to the main con­course.

FTMS Col­lege prin­ci­pal Dr Sa­ji­lal Di­vakaran said the Cy­ber­jaya cam­pus would be­come the main cam­pus and head­quar­ters for FTMS in Malaysia.

The week­end MBA is de­signed for 21st cen­tury man­agers with am­bi­tions to im­prove their lead­er­ship and man­age­rial skills.

Through an in­no­va­tive “blended-learn­ing” for­mat that al­ter­nates online and in-per­son classes, stu­dents meet in a class­room set­ting just few week­ends per se­mes­ter.

An­other op­tion is to at­tend the evening classes twice a week. It is the ideal pro­gramme that com­bines the flex­i­bil­ity with a rep­u­ta­tion that only a UK MBA can pro­vide.

Per­sonal con­sul­ta­tion ses­sions are sched­uled with lec­tur­ers over the week­end for guid­ance on as­sign­ments.

Lec­tur­ers are ex­pe­ri­enced in de­liv­ery of the mod­ules and are student friendly in as­sur­ing flex­i­bil­ity and con­ve­nience to stu­dents.

The Week­end MBA batch con­sists of high­level and mid­dle-level man­agers, aged be­tween 28 and 48, with an av­er­age su­per­vi­sory ex­pe­ri­ence of five years. They come from var­i­ous sec­tors, in­clud­ing bank­ing and fi­nance, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, au­to­mo­biles and ed­u­ca­tion.

FTMS Col­lege Malaysia is lo­cated at Block 3420, Per­siaran Se­marak Api, Cy­ber 4, 63000 Cy­ber­jaya in Se­lan­gor.

At FTMS Col­lege Malaysia, work­ing pro­fes­sion­als can upgrade their qual­i­fi­ca­tion while man­ag­ing work.
