Sen­tral path to a bright fu­ture

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR EDUCATION FAIR -

SEN­TRAL Col­lege has been pro­vid­ing qual­ity and af­ford­able education for the past 14 years.

Si­t­u­ated in a 14- storey build­ing at the cor­ner of Bishop Street and Pe­nang Street, it is a gleam­ing education bea­con in the heart of the Ge­orge Town Unesco World Her­itage Site.

From its hum­ble be­gin­nings as a niche player fo­cus­ing on IT education and train­ing pro­grammes for as­pir­ing in­di­vid­u­als and work­ing adults, to­day it of­fers a wide range of aca­demic and pro­fes­sional pro­grammes to­gether with its ed­u­ca­tional part­ners.

The col­lege is the Pe­nang Re­gional Cen­tre for Uni­tar In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity. Its in­sti­tu­tional part­ners from the United King­dom in­clude ACCA and the Univer­sity of Sal­ford, Manch­ester.

Be­ing the first and only col­lege within the north­ern states of Perlis, Kedah and Pe­nang to be awarded with the pres­ti­gious Plat­inum Award sta­tus by ACCA, at­tests Sen­tral’s qual­ity ex­cel­lence in the de­liv­ery of its pro­grammes.

Cur­rently Sen­tral of­fers cer­tifi­cate- level pro­grammes in Busi­ness IT and Tourism Op­er­a­tions ( IATA/ UFTAA, Canada) and Diploma Level pro­grammes in Busi­ness Stud­ies, Com­puter Sys­tems Tech­nol­ogy, Ac­count­ing and Early Child­hood Education.

Also avail­able are de­gree- level pro­grammes in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion ( Hons) and Education ( Early Child­hood Education)( Hons); Foun­da­tion in Man­age­ment; Tourist Guide Pro­gramme Level 3, ACCA Qual­i­fi­ca­tion, Cer­ti­fied Ac­count­ing Tech­ni­cian ( CAT) and Mas­ter of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion ( MBA).

Foun­da­tion stu­dents have been known to be ac­cepted by lo­cal govern­ment univer­si­ties in­di­cat­ing how widely ac­cepted the foun­da­tion pro­gramme is.

This year, the col­lege in­tro­duces four new pro­grammes – Diploma in Tourism Man­age­ment; BSc ( Hons) Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance, BSc ( Hons) Busi­ness In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and BSc ( Hons) Busi­ness and Man­age­ment from the Univer­sity of Sal­ford, Manch­ester, UK.

For those who are in­ter­ested in hos­pi­tal­ity, tourism and busi­ness, the Diploma in Tourism Man­age­ment com­bines all the three ar­eas into one holis­tic pro­gramme to pro­vide mul­ti­ple work op­tions.

Af­ter com­plet­ing this diploma course, stu­dents can pur­sue a De­gree pro­gramme ei­ther in Tourism Man­age­ment, Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment or Busi­ness and Tourism Man­age­ment.

For stu­dents who are IT in­clined, the BSc ( Hons) Busi­ness In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy is a hy­brid pro­gramme that com­bines both busi­ness and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy mod­ules.

It is in­tended as a pro­gres­sion path­way for stu­dents grad­u­at­ing from the Diploma in Com­puter Sys­tem Tech­nol­ogy. They will learn how to solve busi­ness prob­lems via tech­nol­ogy us­ing tools and tech­niques like Busi­ness Sys­tem Mod­el­ing and Busi­ness In­tel­li­gence.

The BSc ( Hons) Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance is in­tro­duced as a pro­gres­sion path­way for stu­dents grad­u­at­ing from the Diploma in Ac­count­ing and pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive to the pro­fes­sional ACCA Qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

Lastly, the BSc ( Hons) Busi­ness and Man­age­ment pro­vides a pro­gres­sion path­way for stu­dents cur­rently en­rolled in the Diploma in Busi­ness Stud­ies.

It of­fers the op­tion to ex­plore fur­ther in one of the fol­low­ing clus­ters – Mar­ket­ing, Hu­man Re­sources, Fi­nance, Man­age­ment or En­ter­prise Ap­pli­ca­tion Sys­tem.
