Out­stand­ing stu­dents at MSU

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

THE Man­age­ment & Science Univer­sity (MSU) con­cluded its ori­en­ta­tion week re­cently with the oath-tak­ing of about 2,000 new un­der­grad­u­ates. Founder and pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Tan Sri Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Ya­jid opened the event as ju­nior MSUri­ans of the 2017/2018 aca­demic ses­sion pledged re­spon­si­bil­ity and unity in hon­our­ing their man­date for learn­ing and dis­cov­ery.

The ju­nior MSUri­ans were led by Bach­e­lor in Hu­man Cap­i­tal Man­age­ment stu­dent Muham­mad Har­ris Muham­mad Kamil be­fore MSU’s se­nior man­age­ment and fac­ulty mem­bers.

In his ad­dress, Shukri re­minded un­der­grad­u­ates to make full use of their op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue higher ed­u­ca­tion by ex­celling in their cho­sen fields and equip­ping them­selves with per­sonal self-de­vel­op­ment on at­ti­tude, be­haviour, thinking and cre­ativ­ity.

He hoped that the Ori­en­ta­tion Week would be ben­e­fi­cial for all stu­dents to un­der­stand each other bet­ter and be­gin a fruit­ful univer­sity life.

He also en­cour­aged them to learn the lessons of ex­pe­ri­ence and to develop them­selves into global ci­ti­zens through the MSU Global Mo­bil­ity (GMP), Global Lead­er­ship (GLP) and Global In­tern­ship (GIP) Pro­grammes.

As an ap­plied and en­ter­prise univer­sity, MSU of­fers pro­grammes of study at post­grad­u­ate, un­der­grad­u­ate and foun­da­tion lev­els, through con­nected path­ways for stu­dents from all walks of life and per­sonal back­grounds.

Be­sides that, as one of Malaysia's top uni­ver­si­ties, MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates. Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dents learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­ten­cies are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure the grad­u­ates em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

The pro­grammes that the univer­sity of­fer meet the strin­gent stan­dards set by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional bod­ies. MSU’s award-win­ning home­grown pro­grammes are among the best in the re­gion.

These pro­grammes are metic­u­lously crafted to en­hance the grad­u­ates’ po­ten­tial. The univer­sity as­pires to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion that will en­hance em­ploy­a­bil­ity of its grad­u­ates and at the same time en­rich the stu­dents learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with eth­i­cal and moral val­ues.

MSU was also accorded "Ex­cel­lent Sta­tus Univer­sity" twice on the na­tional uni­ver­si­tyrat­ing sys­tem SETARA by the min­istry and The Most En­tre­pre­neur­ial Pri­vate Univer­sity 2016.

A re­cent rat­ing, plac­ing MSU on world­class stan­dards, was the QS 2016 Rat­ing, which awarded 5 Stars to the Univer­sity for its Teach­ing, Em­ploy­a­bil­ity, Fa­cil­i­ties, So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity, and In­clu­sive­ness.

MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates.
