Nur­tur­ing in­dus­try-ready tal­ents

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL HIGHER EDUCATION -

OUR busi­ness and ac­count­ing stu­dents will get the ad­van­tage that other fresh grad­u­ates wish they had. Our grad­u­ates emerge in the job mar­ket com­plete with job ex­pe­ri­ence, in ad­di­tion to a dual-award qual­i­fi­ca­tion with Anglia Ruskin Univer­sity in Bri­tain,” says MAHSA Univer­sity Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing dean Chung Cheng Hoe.

On the unique “Busi­ness In­cu­ba­tor” as­pect at the MAHSA, Chung said: “Through the ‘Busi­ness In­cu­ba­tor’ pro­gramme, our stu­dents deal with ‘real ex­pe­ri­ences’ of run­ning an ac­tual reg­is­tered busi­ness for a min­i­mum pe­riod of one year – all on-cam­pus.

“Stu­dents are fa­cil­i­tated by var­i­ous larger businesses to learn how to meet the nu­mer­ous de­mands of real-life busi­ness sit­u­a­tions such as in fi­nance, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing and ac­count­ing.

“As in ev­ery real busi­ness or trade, there will be chal­lenges. Stu­dents in this pro­gramme will face these prac­ti­cal daily chal­lenges, such as staffing, re­source man­age­ment as well as bud­getary con­cerns, and learn how to man­age these sit­u­a­tions.

“They also learn more about how dif­fer­ent de­part­ments work and come to­gether to form a sin­gle unit of one com­pany.

“Job op­por­tu­ni­ties in to­day’s em­ploy­ment arena of­fer an un­end­ing se­lec­tion for grad­u­ates.

“How­ever, a com­mon plight faced by fresh grad­u­ates is that most em­ploy­ers seek work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, a cri­te­ria which fresh grad­u­ates find im­pos­si­ble to sat­isfy,” added the ex­pe­ri­ence busi­ness aca­demi­cian.

“Through the ‘ Busi­ness In­cu­ba­tor’ pro­gramme, as well as all their in­tern­ship ex­pe­ri­ences, the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge, Con­tin­u­ing Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment, events and other stu­dent ac­tiv­i­ties on-cam­pus, our grad­u­ates are ready to hit the ground run­ning.”

Chung, with al­most 15 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in busi­ness and aca­demics, also said that stu­dents would re­ceive in­tern­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties with over 40 dif­fer­ent multi­na­tional com­pa­nies through the Malaysian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment (MIM), of which MAHSA is closely af­fil­i­ated with.

Post-grad­u­ate busi­ness stu­dents can choose be­tween full-time and part-time pro­gramme op­tions.

MAHSA’s Ac­count­ing stu­dents can also em­bark on a unique path­way to ob­tain a glob­ally recog­nised pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tion from the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants (CIMA).

MAHSA Univer­sity of­fers busi­ness and ac­count­ing op­tions with its Foun­da­tion in Busi­ness, Di­ploma in Ac­count­ing, Di­ploma in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Bach­e­lor in Ac­count­ing, Bach­e­lor in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, as well as the Masters in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion.
