The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

ONE of the key rea­sons for the con­tin­ued suc­cess of Bi­nary Univer­sity has been the ex­cel­lent em­ploy­a­bil­ity of its grad­u­ates.

“Bi­nary Univer­sity’s unique In­dus­try Spe­cial­ist Pro­fes­sional ( ISP) grad­u­ate model has helped thou­sands of busi­ness and ac­count­ing grad­u­ates em­bark on suc­cess­ful ca­reers for 32 years since its in­cep­tion in 1984,” says Datuk Prof Joseph Adaikalam, founder chair­man of Bi­nary Univer­sity.

The five- star rat­ing and the ex­cel­lent grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity sta­tus ac­corded to Bi­nary Univer­sity by the Education Min­istry is tes­ta­ment to its qual­ity of education as a spe­cial­ist univer­sity.

“To equip grad­u­ates with in­dus­try- spe­cific knowl­edge, we have de­vel­oped in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty in col­lab­o­ra­tion with in­dus­try play­ers from more than 22 in­dus­tries,” says Prof Dr Su­lochana, vice- chan­cel­lor of Bi­nary Univer­sity.

Apart from the ISP ad­van­tage, the other rea­son Bi­nary Univer­sity grad­u­ates are highly em­ploy­able is that it pro­duces en­tre­pre­neur­ial ac­coun­tants, man­agers and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy pro­fes­sion­als us­ing the com­pre­hen­sive en­tre­pre­neur­ial ecosys­tem that the univer­sity has in­vested in and es­tab­lished to dif­fer­en­ti­ate its grad­u­ates from oth­ers.

Pop­u­lar cour­ses at Bi­nary Univer­sity in­clude the BA ( Hons) Ac­count­ing, BA ( Hons) Busi­ness Man­age­ment and the BA ( Hons) En­trepreneur­ship, which all of­fer ex­cel­lent job and ca­reer prospects.

“Our BA ( Hons) in Ac­count­ing is among the few ac­count­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions in Malaysia that is triple- ac­cred­ited. Our ac­count­ing de­gree is Cer­ti­fied Prac­tis­ing Ac­coun­tants ( Aus­tralia)- ac­cred­ited, Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency- ac­cred­ited and pro­vides ex­emp­tion from eight pa­pers of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants UK,” says S. F. Huang, se­nior lec­turer and char­tered ac­coun­tant with more than 20 years of in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Bi­nary Busi­ness School equips its grad­u­ates with en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills and the ISP ad­van­tage, which makes them highly mar­ketable. We are unique in that we im­merse grad­u­ates in in­dus­try spe­cial­i­sa­tions dur­ing their de­gree, cre­at­ing value for their fu­ture,” says Prof Dr Peter Shep­hard, dean of Bi­nary Busi­ness School.

Bi­nary Univer­sity of­fers pro­grammes from foun­da­tion to PhD lev­els in ac­count­ing, busi­ness, com­put­ing, en­trepreneur­ship, fi­nance, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and mar­ket­ing.

“Sur­rounded by a beau­ti­fully land­scaped green park, food and bev­er­age out­lets, con­ve­nience stores and con­do­minium- styled ac­com­mo­da­tion for 2,000 stu­dents within its Pu­chong cam­pus, Bi­nary Univer­sity of­fers stu­dents value- for- money qual­ity education as well as an en­vi­ron­ment con­ducive to study­ing and liv­ing,” says Prof Dr Su­lochana.

“What we are of­fer­ing at Bi­nary Univer­sity is an op­por­tu­nity for youths to dif­fer­en­ti­ate them­selves in the com­pet­i­tive job mar­ket. Ev­ery­one has the po­ten­tial to be suc­cess­ful but they need an ecosys­tem that can help bring out the best in them. This is what we are of­fer­ing at Bi­nary Univer­sity. It’s not just an aca­demic univer­sity but one with an ecosys­tem that can help stu­dents re­alise their max­i­mum po­ten­tial,” says Prof Joseph.
