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

WITH to­day’s global mar­ket­place char­ac­terised by rapid change, height­ened pub­lic scru­tiny and Asia’s as­cen­dance, AeU is ded­i­cated to of­fer­ing a MBA pro­gramme which com­bines the best of global busi­ness train­ing with a unique fo­cus on the vi­brant Asian re­gion.

With a firm con­cep­tual foun­da­tion and prac­ti­cal knowl­edge of busi­ness mod­els which em­brace the best of east and west busi­ness prac­tices, the AeU MBA is the key for in­di­vid­u­als who want to leave their mark and em­bark on a ca­reer in Asia and be­yond.

AeU Mas­ter of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion

AeU of­fers the Mas­ter of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (MBA) De­gree pro­gramme with seven spe­cial­i­sa­tions to cater to the needs of work­ing adults who are in­ter­ested in en­hanc­ing their ca­reers and pro­fes­sion­al­ism.

The core cour­ses in the ar­eas of busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion and man­age­ment equip stu­dents with the es­sen­tial skills re­quired by lead­ers to suc­ceed in busi­ness.

Stu­dents can choose from spe­cial­i­sa­tions such as In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness, En­trepreneur­ship, Risk Man­age­ment, Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment, Is­lamic Bank­ing and Fi­nance, Is­lamic In­sur­ance and Tourism Man­age­ment.

Ap­proved by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry (MOE) and ac­cred­ited by the Malaysia Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency (MQA), the AeU MBA pro­gramme is of­fered on both full-time and part­time ba­sis.

Full-time MBA stu­dents can com­plete their stud­ies within 12 months while part-time stu­dents can com­plete their stud­ies within 18 months. Classes for full-time and part-time MBA stu­dents are held dur­ing week­ends, mak­ing it ideal for work­ing adults.

The AeU MBA of­fers an in­ten­sive 12-month full-time pro­gramme to mould top talent in Asia for such lead­er­ship roles.

The pro­gramme uses a blended learn­ing method­ol­ogy (face-to-face learn­ing with in­ter­ac­tive on­line learn­ing) that al­lows pro­fes­sion­als from di­verse back­grounds, in­dus­tries and cul­tures to unite in the spirit of learn­ing, open mind­ed­ness and de­bate.

The AeU MBA aims to equip stu­dents with the skills needed in an in­creas­ingly com­pet­i­tive workplace.

Stu­dents will gain a global per­spec­tive with an in-depth knowl­edge of the Asian economies, learn how busi­ness is con­ducted in Asia and be able to rec­om­mend so­lu­tions that go be­yond in­ter­na­tional bound­aries.

They will learn key an­a­lyt­i­cal skills rel­e­vant to con­tem­po­rary busi­ness prac­tices and de­velop the means by which to ap­ply these skils in a re­al­life set­ting.

Stu­dents will also be equipped with the abil­ity to demon­strate holis­tic aware­ness of rel­e­vant trends im­pact­ing con­tem­po­rary busi­ness.

The AeU MBA of­fers deep Asian in­sights and ex­per­tise while giv­ing stu­dents a global per­spec­tive, pro­vid­ing them with the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop them­selves pro­fes­sion­ally.

This unique post­grad­u­ate pro­gramme also makes it pos­si­ble for stu­dents to be af­fil­i­ated with a global alumni net­work.

Stu­dents can in­stantly tap into a net­work of over 5,000 univer­sity alumni, many of whom are hold­ing prom­i­nent po­si­tions all over the world.

“AeU’s MBA of­fers stu­dents like me the flex­i­bil­ity to study and work at the same time.

“This pro­gramme is par­tic­u­larly ap­peal­ing be­cause I travel a lot and do not have the time to study at a tra­di­tional cam­pus univer­sity.

“The other fea­ture that at­tracted me to this pro­gramme is the di­ver­sity of its stu­dents,” said AeU MBA stu­dent from In­dia, Cap­tain Ra­jeev Agraw, who works as mas­ter mariner with MISC Ber­had. Flex­i­ble op­tions for work­ing adults

Those in­ter­ested can ap­ply for the MBA pro­grammes through the nor- mal en­try path – ap­pli­cants should pos­sess a recog­nised bach­e­lor’s de­gree – or via the open en­try path.

Through the open en­try path, AeU ac­cepts can­di­dates who lack the ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion re­quire­ment by as­sess­ing their prior learn­ing ac­quired through for­mal and in­for­mal train­ing, as well as work ex­pe­ri­ences.

The open en­try re­quire­ment for the MBA pro­grammes is that the can­di­date must be at least 35 years old, pos­sess STPM/Ma­tric­u­la­tion/ Di­ploma/ A-Level or equiv­a­lent qual­i­fi­ca­tion with a recog­nised prior learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

AeU is a col­lab­o­ra­tive multi­na­tional univer­sity es­tab­lished un­der the aus­pices of the 33 Asia Co­op­er­a­tion Di­a­logue Coun­tries (ACD).

All aca­demic pro­grammes are in­ter­na­tion­ally bench­marked, ap­proved by the MOE and ac­cred­ited by the MQA. There are three in­takes each year – Jan­uary, May and Septem­ber.
