Groom­ing fu­ture busi­ness lead­ers

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

BUSI­NESS is one of the most sought-af­ter pro­grammes at ter­tiary level be­cause of the foun­da­tion it pro­vides to as­pir­ing busi­ness lead­ers.

Busi­ness stu­dents are given the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore var­i­ous fields such as ac­count­ing, busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion and man­age­ment, eco­nom­ics, fi­nance, hu­man re­sources and mar­ket­ing.

As a re­sult, busi­ness stu­dents de­velop an­a­lyt­i­cal, man­age­ment, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and quan­ti­ta­tive skills, have a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of eco­nomic prin­ci­ples and most im­por­tantly, dis­cover their tal­ents and in­ter­ests.

Upon grad­u­a­tion, they have a bet­ter idea on which area they would pre­fer to spe­cialise in when they join a cor­po­ra­tion.

In recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of a strong foun­da­tion for a seam­less tran­si­tion to the busi­ness world, SEGi Univer­sity Group of­fers a wide range of pro­grammes un­der its School of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing.

The School of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing is the largest and old­est in SEGi Col­lege Kuala Lumpur and prides it­self on pro­vid­ing the high­est qual­ity busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion.

By pro­vid­ing in­dus­try rel­e­vant and in­no­va­tive pro­grammes that adapt to the ev­er­chang­ing busi­ness world, the school de­vel­ops fu­ture busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als by of­fer­ing re­al­world busi­ness stud­ies.

At SEGi Col­lege KL, stu­dents are ex­posed to a va­ri­ety of learn­ing meth­ods, in­clud­ing lec­tures, sem­i­nars, work­shops, pre­sen­ta­tions and prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.

SEGi Col­lege KL also draws a large num­ber of top-notch aca­demics and cap­tains of in­dus­tries into its com­mu­nity, who serve as aca­demic ad­vis­ers, lec­tur­ers, ex­am­in­ers and mod­er­a­tors.

It is no won­der that SEGi Col­lege KL was cho­sen as the Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence (CoE) for Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing by SEGi Univer­sity Group last year.

The CoE is an ini­tia­tive by SEGi Univer­sity Group to pro­pel SEGi to the next level by build­ing upon strong foun­da­tions and trans- form­ing from a gen­er­al­ist in­sti­tu­tion into eight specialist CoEs. By fo­cus­ing on ar­eas of strength, the CoEs will be able to deliver a su­pe­rior ed­u­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence.

The col­lege also part­ners with some of the most rep­utable cor­po­ra­tions for in­tern­ship and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to join the SEGi En­trepreneur­ship Coun­cil (SEC) that aims to nur­ture stu­dents so that they can grow be­yond busi­ness the­o­ries taught in books and dur­ing lec­tures, and let­ting them thrive in an en­vi­ron­ment where they have to make busi­ness de­ci­sions, be an ef­fec­tive team player and cope un­der pres­sure.

For ef­fec­tive prepa­ra­tion for the busi­ness world, mem­bers of SEC par­tic­i­pate in nu­mer­ous na­tion­wide com­pe­ti­tions and quizzes or­gan­ised by multi-na­tional com­pa­nies and ma­jor cor­po­ra­tions and as a re­sult, have pro­duced na­tional cham­pi­ons. So far, the mem­bers have or­gan­ised or par­tic­i­pated in about 40 events and com­pe­ti­tions at state, na­tional and re­gional lev­els.

Re­cently, stu­dents from the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing were treated to a riv­et­ing dis­course with spe­cial guest speak­ers who are also In­dus­try Ad­vis­ers for the School, Asian Fi­nance Bank Bhd chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Mo­hamed Aza­hari Mo­hamed Kamil and Navis Cap­i­tal Part­ners man­ag­ing part­ner and co-founder Ni­cholas Bloy.

Both the speak­ers shared their per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences in the busi­ness in­dus­try and re­minded stu­dents that the road to suc­cess is not just good aca­demic re­sults, but also hard work, divine in­ter­ven­tion and hav­ing a high level of in­tegrity.
