Mov­ing to­wards ex­cel­lence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

IN line with its vi­sion of be­com­ing a leader and a pre­mier ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion for the pro­mo­tion of af­ford­able and qual­ity learn­ing in Asia, the Asia e Univer­sity (AeU) has come up with unique pro­grammes that of­fer com­pre­hen­sive cour­ses to mid-ca­reer work­ing pro­fes­sion­als.

SPEED, also known as the School of Pro­fes­sional and Ex­ec­u­tive Ed­u­ca­tion, of­fers train­ing pro­grammes to ex­ec­u­tives and pro­fes­sion­als from var­i­ous in­dus­tries with the pur­pose of al­low­ing th­ese wellqual­i­fied mav­er­icks to spur their ca­reer en­hance­ments.

SPEED of­fers pro­grammes in a va­ri­ety of fields cov­er­ing self­im­prove­ment and gen­eral in­ter­ests and they can be tai­lor-made to in­clude the de­vel­op­ment of pro­fes­sional and over­all com­pe­tency such as com­mu­ni­ca­tion and crit­i­cal think­ing skills. Each cer­ti­fi­ca­tion will be given a credit value wher­ever pos­si­ble, al­low­ing re­cip­i­ents to pur­sue for­mal aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion later.

SPEED’s pro­grammes in­clude Ex­ec­u­tive/Pro­fes­sional Diplo­mas, Ex­ec­u­tive Bach­e­lors and Ex­ec­u­tive Mas­ters. Its Ex­ec­u­tive Mas­ter pro­grammes fo­cus on se­nior level man­age­ment and lead­ers from com­pat­i­ble dis­ci­plines such as Engineering Busi­ness Man­age­ment, In­ter­na­tional Freight, Lo­gis­tics and Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment, Strate­gic Hu­man Cap­i­tal and Or­gan­i­sa­tional De­vel­op­ment, Op­er­a­tion and Project Main­te­nance, Fa­cil­ity Build­ing Main­te­nance, Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Pub­lic Re­la­tion, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment, Man­age­ment, Plan­ta­tion De­vel­op­ment and oth­ers.

El­e­ments such as Strate­gic Hu­man Re­source Man­ange­ment, Lo­gis­tics and Busi­ness Man­age­ment are em­bed­ded into Ex­ec­u­tive Mas­ter and Bach­e­lor pro­grammes. Th­ese ar­eas cor­re­spond with the piv­otal needs of the in­dus­trial and work­ing en­vi­ron­ment in­te­gral to ev­ery or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Stan­dard Op­er­at­ing Pro­ce­dures.

Mean­while, the Ex­ec­u­tive Bach­e­lor pro­grammes in­clude Engineering Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Lo­gis­tics and Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment, Hu­man Cap­i­tal Man­age­ment, Is­lamic Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Is­lamic In­vest­ments and Taka­ful and more.

Par­tic­i­pants of the SPEED pro­gramme man­age their own tasks and per­form their best. This en­cour­ages stu­dents to pro­vide sub­stan- tive feed­back as they go along and nat­u­rally in­cul­cates a cul­ture of own­ing up to the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties among th­ese priv­i­leged in­di­vid­u­als, thus fur­ther re­in­forc­ing con­fi­dence and self-em­pow­er­ment.

SPEED di­rec­tor Nik Hishamud­din Nik Mohd Yu­sof says, “AeU SPEED is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing real re­sults in our learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment so­lu­tions.

“Through our di­verse se­lec­tion of ex­ec­u­tive pro­grammes and cus­tomised learn­ing so­lu­tions, we equip com­pa­nies and ex­ec­u­tives to take on the dy­namic op­por­tu­ni­ties out there, help­ing to up­grade their skills, achieve goals and re­alise their dreams on a cor­po­rate and per­sonal level.”

The pre­req­ui­sites for en­rol­ment into the SPEED pro­gramme have been tai­lored by AeU to boost in­ter­est among pro­fes­sion­als and ex­ec­u­tives, one of which is the re­quire­ment of at least one year of work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the re­spec­tive fields.

The pur­pose is to en­cour­age work­ing adults to con­sider en­hanc­ing their ex­ist­ing skills and knowl­edge.

“At AeU, SPEED ex­ec­u­tives can re­shape their own ed­u­ca­tion and stay rel­e­vant in a rapidly mor­ph­ing world,” says AeU Busi­ness Man­age­ment Ex­ec­u­tive Bach­e­lor stu­dent Sabah­nim Mohd Noor.

Aside from the School of Pro­fes­sional and Ex­ec­u­tive Ed­u­ca­tion (SPEED), AeU has been es­tab­lish­ing its pres­ence in the ed­u­ca­tion sphere with six fun­da­men­tal schools of ex­per­tise since 2008.

AeU also of­fers fi­nan­cial aid to some stu­dents in the form of merit schol­ar­ships, loans, spon­sor­ships and even dis­counts. Terms and con­di­tions ap­ply.

Can­di­dates can ap­ply through a nor­mal en­try or via open en­try ad­mis­sion that con­sid­ers the in­di­vid­ual’s work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
