Leading the way for global business
cOMMERCE in today’s world has been redefined by the globalisation of the marketplace and business leaders face formidable challenges.
In addition to internal pressures of maximising shareholder returns and corporate responsibility, the external pressures of the increasingly dynamic global economy and evolving business needs of the 21st century are also something that needs to be taken into consideration.
Educators are tasked with equipping tomorrow’s business leaders with long-term vision, the ability to analyse risks and opportunities amid rapidly changing and uncertain conditions, as well as the capability to create value for the community around them.
Additionally, they also need to be prepared to respond to the changing paradigm of global business.
With that in mind, Taylor’s Business School believes in developing purposeful business leaders of the future through a holistic and value-based education.
This is achieved by approaching business studies in a practical and engaging manner, making it highly relevant to current global business practices.
Since its establishment in 1993, Taylor’s Business School has grown into one of the largest and most dynamic business schools in Malaysia, offering highly recognised international business qualifications from Foundation to Bachelor, Master and Doctorate (PhD).
Graduates are provided with a crucial foothold for them to be able to propel themselves into the global arena, whether as future leaders of conglomerates or successful business owners.
Taylor’s takes pride in grooming business graduates who can create social value through their business activities, looking beyond profit margins and emphasising the value of contributing to the community.
In order to create a new generation of business students, students need to be able to see the “big picture” view of the organisation and business landscape as a whole.
This will precipitate transformation in the workplace, a process that can happen when individuals have a holistic view of the company and see beyond the organisational divisions and hierarchy.
At Taylor’s Business School, students are provided with opportunities to be immersed in situations where they are challenged to look at issues from an owner’s perspective and subsequently make decisions from an owner’s stand point.
These experiences greatly assist in shaping their viewpoint from the perspective of the organisation and business community, as well as influence their desire to make a difference.
Students who pursue their higher education with Taylor’s Business School are also groomed to possess a strong entrepreneurial mindset and a heart for social responsibility.
They are encouraged to use their business acumen to address social issues and develop business solutions to improve the quality of life of affected communities.
Despite being challenged with limited budget and resources, they are required to develop creative and cost-effective proposals to achieve their business goals.
This enhances their practical experience in running a business, enabling them to apply their classroom knowledge as well as improve ethical, interpersonal, communication, leadership and problem-solv- ing skills during the project.
An example of a project run by Taylor’s Business School students is the Social Entrepreneurship Fresh Mart.
Students work together to develop business strategies in creating a “marketplace” on campus to sell fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers from the farms of Cameron Highlands.
The profits are then donated back to the local farmers, as part of Taylor’s Business School’s initiative to help the local farming community while allowing its students to gain exposure social entrepreneurship through real business experiences.
