Shin­ing in sports and stud­ies

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

tHE flex­i­bil­ity shown by Man­age­ment and Science Univer­sity (MSU) has en­abled Muham­mad Redzwan Is­mail, 24, to shine in both stud­ies and sports. He is grate­ful he is able to in­dulge in his pas­sion for sports while study­ing.

“I am grate­ful my in­volve­ment in ath­let­ics has the sup­port of my fam­ily, coach and col­lege mates. I have learnt to al­lot time for stud­ies and sports,” says the stu­dent from Se­menyih, Se­lan­gor.

The Bach­e­lor in Event Man­age­ment stu­dent, School of Hos­pi­tal­ity and Cre­ative Arts (SHCA) is ac­tively in­volved in marathons.

“My lec­tur­ers, MSU Ath­let­ics Club and Shah Alam Pac­ers have been in­cred­i­bly sup­port­ive. Without their guid­ance, I would not be able to fo­cus se­ri­ously on my run­ning,” he says.

“They guide me and keep my spirit burn­ing in ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion I take part in.

“My lec­tur­ers help by giv­ing me ref­er­ence ma­te­ri­als to en­sure I will not lag be­hind in my stud­ies.”

He says they un­der­stand his in­volve­ment in sports and pro­vide him with the en­cour­age­ment as MSU places em­pha­sis on over­all de­vel­op­ment of stu­dents and soft skills. Redzwan stud­ied for a di­ploma in hos­pi­tal­ity and tourism man­age­ment at MSU from 2007 to 2010.

The SHCA at MSU cur­rently of­fers bach­e­lor and di­ploma pro­grammes cov­er­ing a wide area of in­ter­est.

Among them are Hos­pi­tal­ity and Tourism Man­age­ment, Culi­nary Arts, Event Man­age­ment, Fash­ion De­sign with Mar­ket­ing, Out­door, Leisure and Ad­ven­ture Man­age­ment, Pub­lic Re­la­tions and En­ter­tain­ment and Spa Man­age­ment.

These spe­cial­i­sa­tions are equipped with com­po­nents that en­sure their com­pat­i­bil­ity with the rel­e­vant in­dus­try.

MSU has de­signed its aca­demic pro­grammes and de­vel­oped the cur­ricu­lum based on mar­ket re­quire­ments to en­sure the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of grad­u­ates.

This goes in line with MSU’s vi­sion of be­com­ing the spe­cialised univer­sity of choice, pro­vid­ing holis­tic aca­demic stan­dards that are rel­e­vant to the needs of the in­dus­try and the na­tion while main­tain­ing high eth­i­cal stan­dards.
