A solid pledge

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER ED­U­CA­TION -

A TO­TAL of 1,440 new The Man­age­ment and Sci­ence Univer­sity ( MSU) stu­dents took their stu­dents oath re­cently dur­ing a cer­e­mony held as a con­clu­sion to the Ori­en­ta­tion Week for the 2016/ 2017 aca­demic ses­sion at MSU’s Chan­cel­lor Hall. The pro­gramme was or­gan­ised by the Stu­dent and Ca­reer De­vel­op­ment ( SCD) depart­ment. The oath- tak­ing was lead by Di­ploma in TESL stu­dent Sarah In­drawati Aris be­fore MSU’s pres­i­dent Prof Tan Sri Datuk Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ya­jid, se­nior man­age­ment and fac­ulty mem­bers of the univer­sity. Also in the cer­e­mony were stu­dents of the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Pro­fes­sional Stud­ies, Fac­ulty of Health and Life Sci­ences, Fac­ulty of In­for­ma­tion Sci­ences and En­gi­neer­ing, In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal School, School of Phar­macy, School of Ed­u­ca­tion and So­cial Sci­ences, School of Hos­pi­tal­ity and Cre­ative Arts and Cen­tre for Foun­da­tion Stud­ies. The cer­e­mony was im­por­tant and mean­ing­ful as it ac­knowl­edged the stu­dents as re­spon­si­ble “MSU cit­i­zens”. It is an im­por­tant tra­di­tion of in­still­ing cul­ture of ex­cel­lence and the one­ness of pur­pose among stu­dents.

In his ad­dress, Prof Shukri re­minded stu­dents to make full use of the op­por­tu­nity given to them and gain as much knowl­edge as pos­si­ble. He also hoped the Ori­en­ta­tion Week would prove ben­e­fi­cial for them to ap­pre­ci­ate the de­mands of a univer­sity life and look to­wards a journey of aca­demic ex­cel­lence. As part of ef­forts to en­rich stu­dents with in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure, MSU al­lo­cated 50 schol­ar­ships un­der the Global Mo­bil­ity Pro­gramme ( GMP). This pro­gramme al­lows stu­dents to choose from over 40 part­ner uni­ver­si­ties in the Asean re­gion, South Korea, Ja­pan, Aus­tralia, New Zealand, Ire­land, Ger­many, the UK, the US and East­ern Europe. The op­por­tu­nity to study at these uni­ver­si­ties will fur­ther en­rich the stu­dent’s de­vel­op­ment and en­hance their ca­reer prospects.

This ex­po­sure serves to com­plete the stu­dents’ de­vel­op­ment into com­pe­tent and em­ploy­able grad­u­ates. MSU is one of Malaysia’s top uni­ver­si­ties and fo­cuses in the crit­i­cal ar­eas of stud­ies that en­com­pass Medicine, Health Sci­ences, Phar­macy, In­for­ma­tion Sci­ences and En­gi­neer­ing, Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Pro­fes­sional Stud­ies, Ed­u­ca­tion and So­cial Sci­ences, Hos­pi­tal­ity and Culi­nary and Mu­sic and Fash­ion.

As Malaysia’s best teach­ing and learn­ing univer­sity, MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates. Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dents learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency el­e­ments are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure the grad­u­ates em­ploy­a­bil­ity. Un­til now, MSU grad­u­ates re­main the pop­u­lar choice among em­ploy­ers. A grad­u­ate tracer study con­ducted by the Malaysian Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry shows a 98% em­ploy­a­bil­ity rate of grad­u­ates’ en­ter­ing the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. This rate is the high­est among all higher learn­ing in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia.
