The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - POSTGRADUATE -

THE Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU) is among the best teach­ing and learn­ing univer­sity in Malaysia. As a univer­sity of choice, MSU fo­cuses on the crit­i­cal ar­eas of stud­ies that en­com­pass medicine, phar­macy, health and life sci­ences, nurs­ing, busi­ness, man­age­ment, ac­count­ing, hos­pi­tal­ity, law, in­for­ma­tion sci­ences and en­gi­neer­ing.

MSU through the Grad­u­ate School of Man­age­ment (GSM) recog­nises that to­day’s global com­pa­nies re­quire man­agers with a broader out­look. Through its in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion ef­forts, MSU at­tracts top stu­dents, em­ploys fac­ulty mem­bers with over­seas ex­pe­ri­ence and forms ef­fec­tive links with busi­ness.

The MSU-MBA of­fers its stu­dents ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing in cross-cul­tural com­mu­ni­ca­tion, the op­por­tu­nity to build a global net­work and the pos­si­bil­ity to cre­ate fu­ture in­ter­na­tional ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

In ad­di­tion, stu­dents will have the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop their man­age­ment skills and tech­niques and im­ple­ment the strate­gies for­mu­lated. The MSUMBA pro­gramme helps stu­dent de­velop skills in lead­er­ship, en­trepreneur­ship, strate­gic man­age­ment and de­ci­sion mak­ing and trains them to be­come suc­cess­ful lead­ers in their ar­eas of spe­cial­i­sa­tion and be­come en­tre­pre­neur­ial thinkers in the most com­pet­i­tive mar­kets.

Dur­ing the MBA pro­gramme, stu­dents will form bonds and meet people from many walks of life. This net­work will be fruit­ful through­out their ca­reer and even later on in life.

The MSU-MBA aims to build on the foun­da­tions of work ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vide new skills and knowl­edge that en­able stu­dents to make the tran­si­tion to a higher level of re­spon­si­bil­ity.

The MSU-MBA pro­vides suf­fi­cient knowl­edge to stu­dents to un­der­stand the var­i­ous facets of an or­gan­i­sa­tion so as to for­mu­late suc­cess­ful strate­gies. It also in­stils a sense of con­fi­dence in them.

Em­ploy­ers know the value of the MSU-MBA and what they can ex­pect from an MSU-MBA grad­u­ate. They also recog­nise the com­mit­ment shown by MSU-MBA stu­dents in in­vest­ing heav­ily in their ca­reers. Such can­di­dates are likely to be dy­namic self-starters who will be an as­set to any or­gan­i­sa­tion. There are nu­mer­ous rea­sons why stu­dents con­sider an MSU-MBA to be an in­te­gral step in their ca­reer path. Ob­tain­ing an MSU-MBA can lead to a high­pay­ing, high-power job.

Ac­tive learn­ing ex­er­cises act as a ba­sis for ver­bal anal­y­sis and dis­cus­sion, al­low­ing for a rich learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment by in­te­grat­ing the real world into the class­room. This broad­ens the stu­dents’ un­der­stand­ing of is­sues by invit­ing them to think be­yond the text ma­te­rial. New terms and con­cepts are de­fined in the mar­gins to fa­cil­i­tate learn­ing.

The Post­grad­u­ate Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme is a means to pro­vide in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure to MSU’s post­grad­u­ate stu­dents. Through this pro­gramme, stu­dents will have the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop an aware­ness and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of other cul­tures, po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ments, and new ap­proaches of do­ing busi­ness.

They con­duct re­search and have pub­lished ar­ti­cles across a broad range of ar­eas. They have also taught univer­sity-level busi­ness cour­ses abroad, bring­ing their rich multi-cul­tural her­itage to our coun­try.
