Solid foun­da­tion in busi­ness

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

THE most sought- af­ter ca­reer paths con­sid­ered by school- leavers within ter­tiary education are usu­ally within the field of busi­ness.

Whether one as­pires to be an en­tre­pre­neur, man­ager who makes crit­i­cal de­ci­sions, fi­nancier or busi­ness strate­gist, a busi­ness de­gree will open up a wide range of ca­reer choices to meet the in­di­vid­ual in­ter­est of stu­dents.

Skills such as man­age­ment, ad­min­is­tra­tion, fi­nance, ac­count­ing and mar­ket­ing can be used to meet var­i­ous in­dus­try de­mands, re­gard­less of its size or sec­tor.

A busi­ness de­gree will give grad­u­ates and emerg­ing pro­fes­sion­als a solid foun­da­tion and the train­ing needed to help them ex­cel in the com­pet­i­tive busi­ness world.

Fully ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA), First City Univer­sity Col­lege ( First City UC)’ s Fac­ulty of Arts and So­cial Sci­ences of­fers pro­grammes that are rel­e­vant to the needs of the in­dus­try that will en­hance the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of its grad­u­ates.

At First City UC, stu­dents can ex­pect an af­ford­able education de­liv­ered by a highly qual­i­fied team of ded­i­cated lec­tur­ers who are equipped with a range of teach­ing and com­mer­cial in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence.

The pro­grammes, which of­fer con­cep­tual and skill- based learn­ing, are also com­ple­mented with the avail­abil­ity of state- of- theart fa­cil­i­ties such as com­puter lab­o­ra­to­ries, a li­brary with e- li­brary fa­cil­i­ties and elec­tronic data­bases that pro­vide ex­cel­lent sup­port to stu­dents in ac­cess­ing aca­demic in­for­ma­tion through­out their stud­ies.

Stu­dents also stand to gain more knowl­edge via lec­tures de­liv­ered by vis­it­ing pro­fes­sors and guest speak­ers from the in­dus­try, which can help broaden the scope of their sub­ject knowl­edge and en­lighten stu­dents on how the busi­ness world works.

There will also be field trips, re­search and con­sul­tancy projects or­gan­ised to ex­tend stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence be­yond the con­fines of the class­room.

Apart from the spe­cific sub­ject ar­eas within the pro­grammes, there is the in­cul­ca­tion of soft skills, which will pre­pare grad­u­ates in meet­ing in­dus­try de­mands by hav­ing not only ap­pro­pri­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tions, but also req­ui­site skills in work­ing with peo­ple in any type of or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Skills such as com­mu­ni­ca­tion, prob­lem- solv­ing, team­work and col­lab­o­ra­tion can be de­vel­oped and en­hanced, in line with the univer­sity col­lege’s goal of pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent and well­rounded grad­u­ates.
