Empowering you for success
AT its core, the Management Development Institute of Singapore's ( MDIS) purpose is to produce graduates who are competent, capable, efficient, productive and able to work with minimum supervision.
The Singapore education icon brings this philosophy to Malaysia where at College MDIS Malaysia, Johor, the principle of empowerment takes a natural course in developing the student into an all- rounded individual with balanced values on leadership and soft skills cultivation.
As they say empowerment is the foundation of success and many a leader emerges from this process when an individual takes on responsibility in the right environment. This is one of the many ways the MDIS Malaysia student is given an opportunity to imbibe leadership and soft skills, so necessary for achieving success in today’s world of work.
An MDIS Malaysia education ensures this requisite as leadership skills and character- building are deemed essential qualities for gaining career success and life’s gratification.
The study environment becomes the training ground for instilling such skills and good practices. Students are moulded to be also sensitive to the practice of empowerment.
They learn first- hand what it is to empower, be empowered and how to translate that empowerment into real action and deed. It becomes an experiential process and learning curve.
They develop alongside this the attributes of a good leader, such as how to inspire others, be confident and passionate about what they do and more importantly, sharing the commitment of the tasks at hand.
The development of soft skills, on the other hand, would include planning with purpose, negotiating, managing and communicating with others in whatever chosen activities open to the student. All these skills come into play as the student moves towards gaining a sense of holistic leadership development and an integrated experience.
This develops their ability to listen, analyse, discern and respond adequately to any issues or request by fellow students in the same way they will need to in a work environment.
MDIS Malaysia is building a RM300mil permanent campus in EduCity, Nusajaya in Johor. The sprawling campus spread over a 30- acre site within EduCity in Nusajaya will be developed in three phases spread over 10 years.
When ready, it will be five times bigger than MDIS’ main campus in Singapore.
It will accommodate over 10,000 students when all of its three phases are fully completed in 2023.
The first phase completing this year will be able to accommodate 2,000 students.
The MDIS Malaysia campus will boast state of the art facilities and amenities with eco- friendly and disability- friendly features.
It will have filming, radio and audio studios, editing room, a hospitality training centre, computer laboratories, prayer rooms, two canteens catering to halal and non- halal menus separately, food and beverage outlets, 600- seater auditorium, a multi- purpose hall as well as sports and recreation facilities – Gym/ Fitness Centre, Badminton, Table Tennis, Basketball Court, Jogging Track Football/ Cricket Field, Tennis and Sepak Takraw Court.
