Fit for busi­ness, fit for life

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

aTC’S School of Busi­ness and Man­age­ment’s growth in the last two decades is credited to its strong com­mit­ment to aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

The school’s core theme is de­vel­op­ing the think­ing pro­fes­sional, fit for busi­ness and fit for life.

It en­sures that stu­dents re­ceive train­ing in all of the pro­fes­sional skills and com­pe­ten­cies nec­es­sary to suc­ceed in their cho­sen fields.

But it doesn’t stop there. The in­cor­po­ra­tion of an in­tern­ship pro­gramme which is com­pul­sory for all busi­ness stu­dents leads to stu­dents hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply their learn­ing in chal­leng­ing real world busi­ness en­vi­ron­ments, en­hanc­ing the learn­ing ac­quired in the lec­ture room, and ex­pos­ing stu­dents to sit­u­a­tions in which they must think on their feet and prove their abil­i­ties.

The School of Busi­ness and Man­age­ment lec­tur­ing staff is made up of ex­pe­ri­enced, ded­i­cated aca­demic spe­cial­ists, all of whom have strong links to in­dus­try and to the pro­fes­sions, ei­ther through their in­dus­trial ca­reers or re­search.

This is im­por­tant in many ways, the most sig­nif­i­cant be­ing their abil­ity to re­late the aca­demic teach­ing ma­te­rial to cur­rent busi­ness prac­tice and to bring this across to their stu­dents in ways that are mean­ing­ful and thought-pro­vok­ing.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion with St Mary’s Univer­sity Col­lege (UK) to con­duct their BA Man­age­ment Stud­ies de­gree pro­gramme is another mile­stone for ATC’s School of Busi­ness and Man­age­ment.

St Mary UC was founded in 1850 to meet ment or ap­pro­pri­ate post­grad­u­ate study.

St Mary’s Univer­sity Col­lege has moved up three places in the newly pub­lished “Sun­day Times Univer­sity Guide League Ta­ble” since 2011 and is ahead of fel­low Lon­don provid- ers Green­wich, West­min­ster, Mid­dle­sex, East Lon­don, South Bank, West Lon­don and Lon­don Met­ro­pol­i­tan.

In a spe­cial league ta­ble of 20 uni­ver­si­ties for Teach­ing Ex­cel­lence com­piled on the ba­sis of the most re­cent Na­tional Stu­dent Sat­is­fac­tion Sur­vey, St Mary’s is among the likes of Cam­bridge, Ox­ford and Sur­rey, and is ahead of St An­drews and Bath.

ATC also of­fers Cer­tifi­cate in Busi­ness Stud­ies, Diploma in Man­age­ment and Diploma in Mar­ket­ing pro­grammes for SPM school-leavers as a path­way to their de­gree stud­ies (ei­ther in Year 1 or 2).

While pur­su­ing their pre-ter­tiary stud­ies, stu­dents are also re­quired to go through an in­tern­ship pro­gramme at es­tab­lished en­ti­ties to en­able them to ap­ply the the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge into prac­ti­cal­ity.

This will even­tu­ally pre­pare stu­dents to en­ter the com­pet­i­tive em­ploy­ment world with more con­fi­dence.
