Get the right foot­ing in the busi­ness world

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

IT is im­por­tant to get the right foun­da­tion be­fore pur­su­ing a de­gree. With so many choices avail­able, it is easy to be over­whelmed.

In recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of a strong foun­da­tion, SEGi Uni­ver­sity and Col­leges of­fers a wide range of pro­grammes, lead­ing seam­lessly to Busi­ness de­grees: > Foun­da­tion in Com­merce > Diploma in Mar­ket­ing > Diploma in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion > Diploma in Hu­man Resources

Management If you are firm in your de­ci­sion to pur­sue Busi­ness as an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree, you can un­der­take the Foun­da­tion in Com­merce. This Foun­da­tion pro­gramme can help you to con­tinue your higher ed­u­ca­tion by pro­vid­ing you a plat­form to qual­ify for uni­ver­sity en­trance. These pro­grammes are pre­ferred by many stu­dents as they pro­vide a smooth tran­si­tion from se­condary stud­ies to a uni­ver­sity de­gree and only take one year to com­plete.

The du­ra­tion of a Diploma pro­gramme is usu­ally longer than that of a Foun­da­tion, tak­ing be­tween two and a half years to three years to com­plete. How­ever, the ad­van­tage of a Diploma is that you also have an op­tion to tran­si­tion into the work­force upon com­ple­tion, should you choose not to pur­sue your de­gree.

Al­ter­na­tively, de­pend­ing on the mod­ules com­pleted in the Diploma, you can pro­ceed to de­gree level and may ap­ply for ex­cep­tions for cer­tain mod­ules, al­low­ing for the pos­si­bil­ity of ob­tain­ing a Busi­ness de­gree in a shorter pe­riod of time.

Upon com­ple­tion of the Foun­da­tion or Diploma pro­grammes, there is a wide va­ri­ety of Busi­ness de­gree pro­grammes you can pur­sue at SEGi.

For Busi­ness de­grees that can be com­pleted lo­cally, SEGi of­fers 3+ 0 Busi­ness de­gree pro­grammes from Uni­ver­sity of Green­wich and Uni­ver­sity of Sun­der­land, both from the United King­dom.

You get to com­plete your Busi­ness stud­ies at ei­ther one of the five SEGi cam­puses, while ob­tain­ing Bach­e­lor’s de­grees from top­notch uni­ver­si­ties in the United King­dom.

SEGi Uni­ver­sity at Kota Da­mansara also of­fers its own Busi­ness de­grees and dual award Busi­ness de­grees. This pro­gramme is unique as stu­dents get to study one pro­gramme and grad­u­ate with two de­grees – one from SEGi Uni­ver­sity and the other from Aber­tay Uni­ver­sity, one of Scot­land’s lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties.
