Stand­ing proud

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

SERI Stam­ford Col­lege has been in the education in­dus­try in Malaysia for over six decades. It is well known for its home grown diplo­mas like the sec­re­tar­ial, busi­ness, mar­ket­ing, hos­pi­tal­ity, ad­min­is­tra­tion, me­dia and com­mu­ni­ca­tion cour­ses. Th­ese diplo­mas and cer­tifi­cates are struc­tured, de­signed and de­liv­ered to thou­sands of stu­dents from across the coun­try.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the diplo­mas are recog­nised for en­try to univer­si­ties in Bri­tain, the US and Aus­tralia be­sides be­ing ac­cepted by multi­na­tional com­pa­nies for em­ploy­ment. Th­ese links with for­eign univer­si­ties and pro­fes­sional as­so­ci­a­tions pro­vide the cat­a­lyst for the col­lege to in­tro­duce new method­olo­gies in teach­ing. Stam­ford’s diplo­mas were the pil­lars on which the in­sti­tu­tion built it­self in its pi­o­neer­ing days. As a re­sult of the ex­pan­sion of the diplo­mas, the range of cour­ses of­fered con­stantly de­vel­oped and evolved.

A new in­te­grated cam­pus in Ke­pong:

As the education arm of tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion group IRIS Cor­po­ra­tion Ber­had, one of IRIS’ first strate­gic moves was to re­lo­cate the cam­pus from PJ to Plaza Men­jalara, Ban­dar Men­jalara, Ke­pong. The new cam­pus is housed with mod­ern in­fra­struc­ture and ameni­ties. The move to Ke­pong has been one of the prime movers to con­sol­i­date its po­si­tion. The new cam­pus serves Greater KL and the mixed com­po­si­tion of its stu­dents gives the col­lege an in­ter­na­tional cam­pus flavour.

Be­side the main cam­pus in Ke­pong, the other cam­pus is in Malacca, which is lo­cated in the heart of Malacca city. This cam­pus serves the south­ern re­gion of Malaysia and of­fers cour­ses in Ho­tel Man­age­ment, Busi­ness, Cor­po­rate Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Sec­re­tar­ial Stud­ies, Ac­count­ing and English Lan­guage. The Malacca cam­pus also caters to the In­done­sian stu­dents, es­pe­cially those who live in Su­ma­tra.

More new and ex­cit­ing cour­ses:

A strik­ing fea­ture about Seri Stam­ford Col­lege is that it has never re­mained con­stant. It changes, evolves and ini­ti­ates new changes that will cre­ate new op­por­tu­ni­ties for its stu­dents. Seri Stam­ford Col­lege man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Datuk Vin­cent Leong says, “Be­sides our main­stay cour­ses like Busi­ness, Mar­ket­ing, IT, Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment and Law, new
