Step ahead with an MBA

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - POSTGRADUATE -

IF you want to move ahead in your ca­reer, In­fra­struc­ture Univer­sity Kuala Lumpur’s (IUKL) MBA pro­gramme could be the key to your suc­cess. In the cur­rent work­ing en­vi­ron­ment, most jobs re­quire em­ploy­ees to have a bach­e­lor’s de­gree but those with a mas­ter’s are al­ways pre­ferred.

The Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing at IUKL of­fers a spe­cially de­signed MBA pro­gramme in the ar­eas of mar­ket­ing, project man­age­ment, ac­count­ing, man­age­ment, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, fi­nance and bank­ing. This pro­gramme will en­hance your ca­reer and achieve­ments in your fu­ture busi­ness en­deav­ours.

With full-time and part­time op­tions, the pro­gramme is ideal for fresh grad­u­ates as well as in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als. A full-time stu­dent can earn an MBA in just 18 months whereas an in­di­vid­ual with a full-time job can earn an MBA in two to three years.

In ad­di­tion, there is an op­tion of six dif­fer­ent ma­jors that al­low stu­dents to have in-depth mas­tery in their re­spec­tive fields while ben­e­fit­ing from the lec­tur­ers who are in­dus­try ex­perts with a wealth of in­for­ma­tion.

“We have stu­dents from across the world, there­fore, our great­est as­set is in­ter­na­tional net­work­ing. While do­ing your MBA, you will net­work and es­tab­lish pos­si­ble con­nec­tions. At the end of this pro­gramme, you will be more con­fi­dent in con­duct­ing pre­sen­ta­tions and en­hanced per­sonal de­vel­op­ment as well as crit­i­cal think­ing skills. But above all, you will have a net­work of world­wide con­tacts,” says Dr Ridzuan Masri, Dean of the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing.

He of­fers some ad­vice to those who are in­ter­ested in pur­su­ing their MBA: “An ad­vanced qual­i­fi­ca­tion makes a dif­fer­ence not only to your re­sume, but also serves as a tes­ta­ment to the ded­i­ca­tion you have in your cho­sen field. If you are will­ing to de­vote your time and ef­fort to im­prove yourself in the cor­po­rate world, then you can be as­sured of suc­cess”.

There are two modes of study for can­di­dates to choose from – project paper or course­work. The flex­i­bil­ity of study is greatly ad­van­ta­geous for stu­dents to or­gan­ise their study plans with­out has­sle.

IUKL is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing qual­ity and af­ford­able ed­u­ca­tion to its post­grad­u­ate can­di­dates. In ad­di­tion to EPF with­drawal, var­i­ous study loans and flex­i­ble in­stal­ment schemes are avail­able for stu­dents. IUKL post­grad­u­ate stu­dents are also el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for the My­Mas­ter and MyPhD fund­ing pro­grammes un­der the MyBrain15 project by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion.
